Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend was one of our busiest in a long time, It was a BLAST! On Friday we were happy to welcome our good friends the Bolin's back to San Antonio. However the next day they we were quickly put to work though because we were having a big barbecue on Saturday. It was so much fun! It was great because we had some old friends, new friends and our neighbors all under one roof. The kids had a blast and enjoyed the bouncy castle. It was a Fiesta Potluck so we all gorged on mexican food and desserts. It turned out to be a beautiful evening and since our back yard doesn't face the sun in the afternoon it was not hot at all. Besides the bouncy castle and the swingset the kids enjoyed playing with the rice table. ( Yes, I said rice table! We don't believe in sand at our house, I turn into Joan Crawford with sand). By the end of the evening we were excited and exhausted. Ethan couldn't even wait for Eric to come and say good night. As soon as his head hit the pillow he was out. I thought we would all pass out too, but our next door neighbors kept the party going till 4 am. Thankfully the kids slept through it but Eric and I being the closest to them got only a couple hours of sleep. Ahh the life of childless people!

Then the next day after all the visitors were gone Eric finally attacked the garage cleaning head on and that kept us pretty busy. After months of me just tossing things in there he finally got it organized and cleaned out. Ethan's highlight though was when he and Daddy went for a ride on the 57 which Ethan calls "Monster Truck". However after a couple of miles the battery went dead so I had to go and tow them back in. He loves riding in it and was just excited it lasted as far as it did.
