Memorial Weekend - 2011

For Memorial Weekend we had plans to head over to Jerry and Lisa’s for a BBQ.  The day started out as not your typical Memorial Weekend weather with it being rainy and windy that morning, but lucky for us when it was time to go to the BBQ the weather cleared and the sun started shining.  Jerry and Lisa have a super cute front patio area which was decked out with food and drinks for everyone.  Jerry BBQ some delicious hamburgers and brats with bacon for that added plus.  He probably BBQ'd enough hamburgers and brats to feed a small country and the hamburgers were probably around the size of a newborns head, they were so big.  I still don't know how Jake went back for a brat after seeing the size of just his hamburger.

It's always great when we all hang out because Skylar gets to hang out with her best bud Harrison.  The two of them are just so cute together, it breaks my heart that Harrison will be moving away in a few months and we won't get to see them grow up together. If one attempted to crawl up the stairs the other had to follow, if one rolled all over Bailey's bed the other had to roll all over it.  Watching the two of them running around the house together was just priceless.  Skylar really enjoyed playing with all of Harrison's toys/books (of course, since they weren't hers), but her favorite was Harrison's sippee cup that she decided to take over as her own and drank if not all, most of his milk. 

I must give myself some kudos for the dessert I brought to the BBQ.  I tried to stick with the Holiday theme.  Too bad I don't think Harrison was a fan of my fruit pizza, as he seemed to only enjoy the chocolate cake Jerry was feeding him.  It was so funny to watch him eat it.  He would get the shakes in between each bite.

With the weather throwing things off a bit in the morning the day ended up turning out just perfect. Jerry and Lisa were awesome hosts and we thank them for there wonderful hospitality.  We had great company, great conversation and tasty food, can't ask for much more for a Memorial Day BBQ with good friends. 

The next day we decided to hit the pool, which was something that Jake had been talking about all weekend.  The weather was so warm and perfect pool weather that we couldn't pass it up.  Since Skylar wasn't a fan of the pool the first time I took her we were interested to see how she would reacted this time and talk about a 180.  We couldn't keep her out of the water, she just loved it.  When we would take her out and put her on the edge she would just reach her arms out wanting to get back in.  The pool day was a perfect ending to our Memorial weekend and gave us a glimpse into what summer is going to be like.
