Memorial Day Weekend Recap

We had a great long weekend!  It was so nice to stay home and relax for a couple of days.  We mostly just hung out, did some crafts/worked on some projects, and ate a whole lot (I took pictures of most our meals because we literally ate all weekend long)! 

We made a summer list Friday afternoon.  I was inspired here.  I thought it would be a fun way to be intentional about doing fun stuff this summer.  I'm looking forward to everything on the list.

Our weekend of food started off Friday night with grilled wings and homemade fries.

And Saturday morning it was biscuits and gravy.

Saw got this workbench from Santa but we just got it out this weekend.  He loves it and spent a lot of time playing at it.

For lunch we enjoyed turkey and avocado subs.

Saturday Keith smoked a boston butt - one of his many grilled specialities. 

Sawyer has recently learned to give kisses.  Open mouthed, slobbery kisses.  It IS the sweetest thing ever.   I mean melts my heart!



Shrimp and grits Sunday night.

And popsicles for dessert.  Saw's first and he loved it.




Big breakfast Monday morning.




Sawyer loves going down the slide.  And every time we go outside he heads straight for it.

And we finished with ribs, corn on the cob and onion rings.


Are you hungry yet?  I swear I gained 5 lbs. this weekend.  But it was all delicious. 
And we had a great time just hanging out and relaxing!
