Memorial Day

Greg chose not to work on Memorial Day so we could have a little rest and relaxation as a family since May has been so incredibly busy. The day proved to be pretty jam packed even though we tried not to make a lot of plans. I got my hair colored in the morning since it was the only time before Greg's sister's wedding (I'm a bridesmaid) that Greg would be home to watch Palmer. Then we went to a barbecue at Greg's mom's new home. We spent the entire afternoon there while Greg help with some home installations. Since it took so long to get the jobs done, Palmer missed his nap and fell asleep on the way home. We had some errands to run, so we decided to take turns running in and out of the car while the other stayed with the baby. We finished with a trip to visit my mom's grave with some flowers. We finally sat down to dinner at 7:00. At 8:00 we decided it was time for our family R & R, so we went on a walk. Palmer went in his wagon, which a neighbor passed on to us (thanks Betsy!), and was super happy. It surely is the simple things that make a great day for a child.

So, not the laid-back day we were expecting, but good nonetheless. Now I am off to put the baby to bed and play some mean Wi-Fi Mario Karting against the Jennes.

Palmer looks so cute in his wagon. I'm sorry that your Memorial day wasn't the relaxing do nothing day that you were looking forward to. Hopefully you and Greg can get a good R&R day soon.
