I always love Memorial Day. Yes, it symbolizes the kick off to summer, but it also means so much to me. I am so thankful for the many men and women who have fought for our freedom and who continue to fight. They are the epitome of love and selflessness. And it’s because of them that we are able to have babies and create memories with our families!
This weekend has been wonderful. It was full of work, fun, and food. The busy season of our rental business has officially started. It’s a lot of work, but it’s amazing at the same time! We also spent lots of quality time as a family, which is always a treat.
Today, we threw a last minute BBQ with a few friends and my mom and step-dad. On the menu was grilled pizza, antipasto, and some fun drinks (non-alcoholic for the preggers). The grilled pizzas are really simple. I get store bought dough from a pizzeria, cut each ball into quarters and roll them out. I place them on sheet pans that are sprinkled with cornmeal. Stew brushes them with olive oil and grills them on either side so they’re ready when our guests get here to decorate and pop on the grill for a few minutes to melt the toppings.
Turner was super excited, not only about the food, but because his best friend, Duncan, was coming over.
These two are so funny. They’re a year apart and they are inseparable! I’ve never seen anything like it, especially at their age. They constantly ask for each other when we’re not together. They really act like brothers. It’s so cute. It works out, because Duncan’s mommy and I are just as inseparable.
We had such a fun weekend. Just one more special memory of many we created as a family of three before we welcome our little girl in the fall!
I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend too! Happy start of summer :o)
