Cain's First Memorial Day

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. Our weekend turned out to be nice and relaxing. At the last minute my parents decided to come visit us. I guess I should probably say they came to visit Cain! It's funny how often they come to see us now that Cain is here. I love it though! They were supposed to get here Friday night but after getting stuck in Atlanta overnight they didn't get here until Saturday morning. I doubt they will be flying through Atlanta in the future if it can be avoided.

We took advantage of having babysitters in town and got a lot done around the house. We spent Saturday afternoon working in the yard. Mom and Cain sat in the hammock and supervised while I planted flowers and Brad and Dad cleaned our gutters. It was so nice to be able to get all of this done.

While we were out Saturday buying flowers and mulch...we also made a stop by Toys R Us and bought Cain a fun Jumparoo! He doesn't look thrilled in this picture but he seemed to have fun bouncing around.

Sunday afternoon we left Cain home with my parents and went to watch a movie. I think my mom may have been exhausted after watching Cain all weekend. I'm sure she'd do it again in a heartbeat though!

"Hey mom....what are you doing back here with me? You are usually not in the backseat."

Pop-Pa telling Cain "See ya later"

After we dropped my parents off at the airport we came home for Cain's first Memorial Day Cookout.

While we were buying Cain his jumparoo...we also bought him his very 1st baby pool. Look at that big belly and those chubby cheeks.
Ha! Ha! So maybe the baby pool wasn't big enough for a family photo!
Sadie decided she needed to join in the Memorial Day festivities and decided to take a dip in the creek.
And this last picture sums up our Memorial Day weekend!!

Relaxing!!!!

That picture is so awesome!! I hope you have that one framed. I was laughing so hard. Then the one with him sucking his thumb...I asked Kenan what he was doing teaching little babies to suck thier thumbs. He thought that was pretty cute.
