Weekend Recap

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend and took some time to remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Kevin had a golf weekend with his friends, so Admiral and I were on our own for most of the weekend.  Friday night my dad and I headed to the casino Friday night, and as usual, I lost and he won.  Even though I lost, I still had a great time.  I took a nice nap on Saturday afternoon, because we stayed up way too late at the casino on Friday night.  After my nap, I headed to the grocery store and then made a couple of things to bring to my family's Memorial Day get together on Sunday.

Admiral took full advantage of Kevin being gone, because this is how he was sleeping when I woke up on Sunday morning:

Sunday morning I got up and mowed the front and back yard, then got ready to head to my family's party.  It rained, so we didn't get to have a bon fire, but we still had a good time.  We had tons of delicious food and it was nice to hang out and catch up.

On Monday we went to the Memorial Day parade in Muskegon with Kevin's family and then had a cook out at his Grandma's.  Admiral and I headed home after the party, while Kevin and his brother went golfing.  When I got home, I decided to plant the rest of my flowers that I hadn't done last weekend.  I'm really loving the color the flowers are adding to our yard,..now I just need them to start getting bigger and blooming!  Here's a look at some of the flowers in our back yard:

I think I'm going to get one more larger pot to add and complete it.

My peonies are SO close to opening, I can't wait!
After I was done with my flowers, I decided I was going to sit in my zero gravity chair and read for a little while.  However, there were some loud noises and Admiral was scared, so he climbed on my lap and made it impossible for me to read.  So we packed up and headed inside to start doing laundry.

Our weekend was busy, but full of family, food, and fun.  Those are the best weekends, am I right?  


  1. Your flowers look so pretty! Admiral sitting on your lap made me laugh out loud. He's so cute!

  2. Admiral is so funny! Love all your flowers! Those stacked pots are neat!
