Memorial Day Shenanigans

 Memorial Day this year we  had planned other things, but sometimes plans don't work out and that is okay!  All the boys are out of school for the summer, and so the later nights and mornings are welcome.  A good start to the summer!

Nathan had a good race in Sugarhouse...

Any crit race where you can walk away and not have crashed is a good race.

He was in the front breakaway the whole time, and did win a primes lap worth $50, not too shabby. 

Saturday I got a text from an old friend from BYU, and she was in Eden and wondered if we happened to be home later that day.  Neither of us had our husbands with us, and it was fun to visit Meghan and our kiddos got to play a bit. 
She lived next door at DT sixth floor, and she was just awesome.  It made my day that she'd stop!

 Mommy and Jonathan enjoying a story. 

 Enjoying donuts for the first day!  The frosting tops missing and those smiles say it all. 

 A family bike ride in the morning.  
We made out our weekly chore charts, and biking at least 4x a week for 30 minutes is on the list.  Jonathan is loving being able to ride a pedal bike this year.  Thanks to the strider bike, he learned last month in a five minute session. 

 On the way home from Michael's birthday party.  Jordan loved the party hats.

 On Sunday we took a walk around the whole of silver lake.  
We saw a momma duck and ducklings, swallow nests in the side of a mud wall, and even spittle bugs. 

 My four handsome dudes!  #2 and #4 take pictures really easily...#1 and #3 don't hold as still, so it's lucky to get one where they are all looking. 

 Jack was always the leader, didn't even matter when we said he had to stay with Jordan.
He just took Jordan's hand and led him to the front :)

 The two of us by the lake, the moon is really big in the background (trust me, it's there).

 A selfie with all six of us?  
We might need a selfie stick once we have one more little "J" in the picture.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
So happy I could enjoy it at home with my little family.
