Memorial Day Weekend

4 Jun

I know I am a little behind (shocker) but whatever.

Memorial Day weekend Joseph and I went up to his family’s lake house to spend the weekend with his family.

Joshua, Lori, and Chloe were in town and it was nice having the whole family together!

Oh and that also means that basically every single picture I took was of Chloe.  I can’t help it…she’s just too dang cute!

Uncle Joseph and Uncle Jeremy set up Chloe’s pool and slide Saturday morning…which she loved!

Ready to slide!

Face full of water!

So Fast!

I forgot to mention how much Duddley loved the pool too…

He would sneak drinks when Chloe wasn't looking...

He would also sneak licks off of empty plates when he THOUGHT no one was looking…

He is so well-behaved...

Basically the whole weekend, Joseph and I rode around on the jet-skis, sometimes on our own but other times we would ride together and take turns throwing each other off.  It was SO much fun but very exhausting!

Chloe loved rocking herself in the rocking chairs on the back porch.  She would sit there and rock and say, “weeee!” and “yay!”

Lori bought Chloe a thing of bubbles that had a big wand with it.  We all tried making a bunch of bubbles come out at once, which is how it is supposed to work and we all failed miserably.  But guess who was the best at it??

Joshua has a secret talent for blowing bubbles apparently...

We had so much fun hanging out with the family, especially this little one (if it isn’t obvious by how many pictures I took of her).

It was the perfect weekend, with perfect weather.

Even the dogs had a blast!

Duddley (black) and Daisy (brown) hanging out on the wall along the fence...silly dogs.

Howdy, Duddley, and Daisy Aren't they pretty?!

I really wish there were more 3-day weekends during the year….who decided that we only get a handful of them?

Joseph and I can’t wait to go back to the lake but unfortunately we are always so busy on the weekends between work, weddings, and random other things that we don’t get to make it out there as often as we would like. 😦

I almost forgot to show you my favorite picture from the whole weekend and possibly ever…

Here’s some back ground info for you.

Joseph and his two older brothers, Jeremy and Joshua, grew up with Justin and his two older brothers, Corey and Brandon.  Justin’s family also has a lake house on the same lake as Joseph’s family which I have mentioned before on here.  Brandon and his wife Sarah have two little boys, Cody and Ryan.  Cody is a little bit older than Chloe so it is cute to see them interact.  They are both such sweet little kids and apparently very affectionate.

Which leads me to the best picture of all time…

Cody and Chloe sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-I-N-G!

Now tell me that doesn’t just melt your heart?!  So cute!

Anyways, I hope you all had a great Memorial Day!  I know I did!
