Our Memorial Day Weekend

Wednesday, May 30, 2007
We had such a nice Memorial Day weekend. We went over to our friend's house for dinner. We had other friends over for a cookout. We went to our pool. I snuggled up in bed with Will and Harry and watched a movie one night after our pool cookout was rained out. It was a really nice weekend. I am grateful to those who have fought and do fight to protect our country and I did remember them in my prayers this weekend.

Our very good friend, Tessa finally got her hands on Miss Kate. To faciliate a healthy attachment, we did not let anyone hold Kate for the first several weeks. Now, we are beginning to let people she knows hold her. People have been very understanding and patient. However, Tessa was dying to hold Kate! Tessa was so wonderful with her. Kate adores their whole family!

At our friend's house for dinner.

This is Kate's country club look. The sunglasses lasted about 2 seconds.

Hmmm...should I go in the water? It might mess up my hair. Aww what the heck. I'm going in!

Kate LOVED the water. She loved us holding her in the water. She loved Harry pulling her around in this floatie thing. She even loved sitting on the edge and falling into the water into Dave's arms. I think we have another swimmer in the family.
Oh, I do not like the taste of this water!

Our club did switch over to a salt water pool. Yeah, less chemicals. I could not be happier about that. It really isn't that salty either.


Harrison splish-splashing around.

  15. Valorie (and others who e-mailed me),

    I use the Nikon D-80 and I LOVE it. It is kind of new so I am still learning all of the bells and whistles. I am not a good photogrpaher at all. It is a GREAT camera. But I think the D-40 is pobably just as good.

  16. Country Club, hands down, my favorite look on Kate :)

  17. LOVE the "country club" pic with the sunglasses - too cute!
