Memorial Day Weekend! (a week late)

I have been super busy this week and have had no time to upload the pics to my blog from our wonderful weekend last week. We drove up to Gantt Sunday morning and enjoyed sitting on the screened porch during a thunderstorm. After the rain slacked up a bit, we drove in to town and grabbed some lunch from DQ. We got back to the cabin and took a ride on a boat. Kaidi's first boat ride. She LOVED it. The only lifevest I could find that would be suitable for her was a very old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle one. It was cute though because she was wearing it! :)
Sunday was Angel's 17th Birthday so we invited her and Jesse to come and spend the evening with us. We invited Bart and Shanna over from next door and stayed up playing board games all night. It was some good fellowship!
The next morning we got up and got started bright and early. The Sansom's got there around 9 and Caroline and Kaidi were so happy to see each other! :) Kaidi kept gnawing on Caroline's toes.
Sara Catherine was super excited about that day. She brought Ariel along with her to swim. :)

Caroline was ready for a day outdoors! :)

We brought the playpen out to the pier and filled it with toys and little girls. It kept them happy for about 10-15 minutes!

We had to come inside for about 30 mintues as a thunderstorm passed through. It was a nice time to sit and enjoy the rain and catch up with our friends. They guys stayed down at the boathouse, and the girls and kids stayed on the screened porch. After it passed, they guys got the grill going while the ladies pattied out hamburgers. We had a wonderful lunch with plenty of food. We made some homemade ice cream and it went wonderful with the chocolate fudge pies that Jan brought. After lunch settled on our stomachs, we hit the water! The kids enjoyed playing in the cold water hot tub while the adults took turns riding intertubes and jetskis! :) Here are a few pics from the water fun! I am ending with the best photo! Needless to say, after that wipeout, Ronnie and Gregg didn't tube anymore!
