We had such a great Memorial Day weekend! We celebrated Grayson’s first Memorial Day will a full schedule. On Saturday we went to visit my Grandmother, Grayson’s great-grandmother to spend the day outside in her beautiful gardens. Grayson enjoyed a nice nap on the deck and I was excited to be able to relax and watch the little one’s play.
On Sunday we headed about an hour away to see my sister-in-laws Stacy’s house in Virgina. It’s always nice to take a country drive and get out of the city. Grayson got to even meet a chicken for the first time! We had a fun-filled day of laughs, fun at the park, and plenty of good cookout food.
As for yesterday, we hung out at home while my husband whipped us up some yummy food. We spent the rest of the evening playing outside with the kids and my parents — enjoying the last few hours of the long weekend. If you follow me on Instagram you may have caught some of my little tidbits this weekend from the dinner prep yesterday to one major accomplishment. Not only did I get the kids all dressed in red, white, and blue but I was lucky enough to snap a picture of all 5! This never happens. Usually someone isn’t cooperating or Grayson is pulling someones hair and so on. I had so much fun capturing the weekend in photos and can’t wait to share them with you!
How was your weekend?

All of the kids get so excited as we pull up to my Grandmother's. As I look back in the rear view mirror, legs are kicking and faces are smiling. Even Grayson gets excited! Her backyard is truly an oasis so it was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the day. Grayson even took a nap on the deck!

Believe it or not, Grayson was sitting right on my laugh getting them to laugh out loud. He truly loves his 4 big sisters.
Enjoying the Gardens 6 of 15
Sadie, with a mouth full of chocolate, decided to venture off and enjoy the garden paths.
My Fab Five 7 of 15
All dressed in red, white, and blue this was my major proud Mom moment and quite the accomplishment to get them all in one photo. Believe me, it's work but worth it. I feel so blessed to have my five.

Grayson Meeting a Chicken! 9 of 15
My sister in law has 5 baby chicks and Grayson couldn't get over them. It was so fun to take a break from the city and enjoy the country. Especially seeing farm animals right at her house. Grayson was in awe.
Hi Mom 10 of 15
He had so much fun playing with all of his cousins. Getting a picture these days is hard -- I can't get him to stop moving!
Time to Swing 11 of 15
As you can see there wasn't a cloud in the sky -- it was a beautiful day for time at the park.

Grayson just loved it. He kicked away in the swing for almost 30 minutes as he watched his sisters play.
So Fun! 13 of 15
He truly enjoyed the day outside and was asleep by 7:30 from all the fresh air.
Silly Boy 14 of 15
As you can see someone found his tongue this weekend too and tries to crawl around like a little puppy dog. I think because he is teething it feels good on his bottom gums but it looks hilarious.
Mommy and Me 15 of 15
Grayson and I were accidental twins in our stripes. All in all, it was an amazing weekend!
