Weekend Recap

Happy Memorial Day!  I first want to say that I am very thankful for all of the service men and women, past and present.  A lot of people just think of this holiday as a three-day weekend, but it is much more than that.  I, of course, am thankful that Tyler was able to be home with us for three days, but will always teach Kyla the reason that we get Daddy home for an extra day.

Here's a little recap of our wonderful weekend...

Saturday afternoon we went to Brat Fest.  For those of you who don't live in Wisconsin, you're missing out, haha.  Actually I didn't even eat a brat.  But Tyler had six over Friday and Saturday so he ate my share too.  They have a "Take Your Brat To Work Day" on Friday morning every year so Tyler had two for breakfast on Friday and then went back for two more for lunch.  Only in Wisconsin, right?  :)

Saturday night we rented a movie for when Kyla went to bed.  We saw Horrible Bosses.  The verdict...HORRIBLE!  Don't see it.  Tyler had heard it was good so we went with it.  It was still nice to have a movie night because we rarely do that.

Sunday was a fun day with just the three of us.  It was in the 90's here so we got the pool filled up!  Tyler and Kyla had fun splashing away while I just stuck my feet in and snapped pictures.

I love this little suit :)

The ruffles on the butt are my favorite!

I'm cool!

Still not really wanting to sit down

But I will if it means I get to play with Daddy!

She got a big kick out of splashing the water.

Thirsty girl!

The water and the heat took it right out of her because as soon as we got inside, she was sound asleep!  I woke her up at 5:00 so she'd sleep last night and she was not a happy camper!  We had dinner and then treated ourselves to ice cream at Culver's.

And when the baby's in bed, the parents will play...

We love Monopoly!  We used to play all the time and I don't think we've played once since Kyla was born.  Tyler beat me so I'll need a rematch soon.  Can you believe I had 4 houses on Park Place and Boardwalk and LOST?  Crazy, right?!

Today my mom came up to help me plant flowers around the house.  And when I say "help", I mean she did everything.  Thank you so much Mom!  I would share pictures with you all, but we just had a huge storm and they look awful right now.  I'll wait until they bounce back and spread out a little :)  We did a bunch in my back little garden thing I have, two hanging plants and two pots.  I love flowers!  Now I just need to make sure they get watered this summer!

Speaking of the storm, Kyla was terrified.  I think it was the noise that really scared her.  It was crazy windy, hard rain and even some hail.  She crawled on Tyler's lap and wouldn't let go and had this tiny little whine like "Daddy, protect me!"

Overall, it was a fantastic weekend.  We got some things done around the house crossed off our list and got to spend time together as a family, which is the best kind of weekend!

Oh, and remember how I told you all that Kyla was a huge Mama's girl lately?  Well, that is slowly ending, especially after this weekend!  I can't really pick her up much anymore and her Daddy will pick her up whenever she wants so she loves that!

What was the best part of your weekend?


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend. Cute pictures

  2. I love the ruffles on that suit--too cute!!

    My hometown has a yearly festival called Sauerkraut Days....basically 3 days of eating brats (and sauerkraut if you like it) haha.

  3. Seriously, can she get any cuter in that suit, with her little legs???

    I carry that same mug around to drink my water from, Amy. :) It's the one way I can remember to keep track and make sure I get enough!

    Looks like you guys had a great weekend!!
