Memorial Day Weekend 2014 was wonderful. Part of it was spent with friends, part of it was spent with family, part of it was spent in Innsbrook, and part of it was spent with just William, Jonny, and myself. Of course, we remembered the amazing heroes who gave their lives to protect our country and give us our many freedoms that we’re so lucky to have as that’s what Memorial Day is all about.

My little American flag baby. I actually spent the majority of the weekend unplugged and didn’t take a ton of pictures. Luckily, Stephanie always loves to pose and photograph William, so we did get that one beauty. Alright here’s my recap with just a few photos scattered throughout.
Friday: We went to my grandparents’ house as some of our out-of-town family was in town. It was good to visit and our night was low-key and ended early. Perfect.
Saturday: Jonny, William, and I hung out in the morning and afternoon. I did capture a couple of adorable pictures of Jonny and William.
Holding hands – melts my heart.
Saturday night we had our friends Diana and Andy over for dinner. I followed several recipes and dinner came out fantastic, we all agreed. We started with a huge salad including spinach, romaine, cherry tomatoes, avocado, honey goat cheese, sunflower seeds, walnuts, apples, cranberries, and balsamic. Dinner was Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches (SO GOOD!), corn casserole, and garlic parmesan green beans. Dessert included french vanilla ice cream with this cookie dough mixed in. That eggless cookie dough is dangerous stuff. I could have eaten the whole bowl on my own. I may have finished what was left for breakfast. Oops.
Sunday: William and I said good-bye to Jonny as he had to work, and we headed to Innsbrook with my family. Even though it poured on the way out there, it turned into a beautiful day and lots of time was spent on the lake and in the sunshine. In the evening, we went to the first concert of the summer.
William slept through the entire thing, mostly in his Yaya’s arms.
Monday: We enjoyed more time outdoors at Innsbrook before cleaning up and heading home. Stephanie took a gorgeous shot of her daughter, Audrey Rose, that I must share.
The rest of the day was spent at home unpacking, doing laundry, and hanging out together. One last picture of our baby William.
Love that face.
How did you spend your Memorial Day weekend?
