Happy Memorial Day! Hope y’all had a fun, relaxing weekend! We kicked ours off on Friday with Jack’s kindergarten graduation. It was pretty adorable. They did a little program with singing & dancing, then closed with the actual graduation “ceremony.”
They didn’t wear a cap & gown on Friday (probably a good thing or I would have been bawling), but his teacher did send this home last week.
If he could stop looking so old, that’d be great.
After graduation we headed out to the lake for the weekend. On Friday night my parents watched the kids so that Brian and I could have a belated b-day dinner at Four Winds. I had a filet and it was AMAZING. They also brought out a fun birthday dessert (creme brulee):
If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. The restaurant is kind of hidden out in the country- it looks like a big cabin with a giant front porch. So pretty.
On Saturday we met up with friends at the Cedar Creek Brewery. We’d heard so many great things about this place and were excited to check it out. I’m not really a beer person BUT they have a great patio, good food, and lots of space (and games!) for the kids to play. Oh and they serve wine, too! The kids had a blast running around with their friends:
The rest of the weekend was pretty much a typical lake visit- fishing, swimming, golf cart rides, playing in the sprinklers, grilling, etc. So, awesome as usual. The kids were NOT happy about leaving, but the good news is that it’s the very beginning of the summer so they’ll have lots of opportunity for more lake fun. And I’ll be pretty happy when that pool warms up. Brrr.
Our dinner last night- my dad grilled burgers, my mom made that corn & avocado salad, and I made my fave BBQ beans with kale:
So there’s our weekend!
