Memorial Day Festivities

We had ourselves a little road trip for Memorial Day. It was our year to go with Tom and Annette to decorate graves in Utah. All of Shane's Grandparents have passed away and are all buried in the same cemetery. It was good for me to go and see their graves. I didn't have the privilege of knowing any of them so I was grateful for the opportunity to honor and remember them with Shane. It was a quick trip but it was a lot of fun. The boys spent like 9 total hours in their carseats...poor boys. I was pleasantly surprised with how well they did. The last hour before getting home was a little rough but other than that, they traveled like champs! We topped off the holiday weekend with a barbecue with family at my parent's house. Barbecues are always fun, so needless to say, we had a great weekend. It was fun to spend time with the fam...and it's always fun to show off the boys a little!!!:)

Taking a Sunday walk around Grandma's house.

During the last hour of our road trip Cade got a little fussy...Einstein saved the day. This picture is of Shane holding up the computer while Baby Einstein played. It was the only thing that would keep Cade from crying. As you can tell, Shane really enjoyed the movie much so that it put him right to sleep!!!
