Making Memories Weekend!

Hey everyone!  From what I've been seeing, this past weekend was a wonderful one for many -- celebrating and remembering our own fallen heroes and the ones we are lucky enough to still have with us, and making new family memories.  For our family, it was all about spending as much time as possible with our "soon-to-be-moving" son and family.  We had wonderful times and created some wonderful memories, and I tried to record as much of it as I could.  The children were pretty indulgent of Nana and her camera, but they got goofy here and there, but I was perfectly okay with them just being themselves.  Hope you don't mind if I share some of the sweetness.

Friday Nite Neighborhood Pizza Party!

Michael built a pizza oven in his backyard and has been the Pizza Man for many neighborhood parties.  He has always been very patient about allowing his children to help in the kitchen (from a very young age) and learn the correct way to do things.  Here are his older children, Parker & Phoebe, helping make the sauce for the pizzas.

Uh oh, Boppa is a horsey!

Chef Phoebe -- that rascally brother is up to something!

Hmmm.......Parker, the "Macho" chef!

Sunday was a barbecue at our house!

We went to the park and then to the pool!

The water was so refreshing!

Monkey see, monkey do!  I could wallpaper a room with this one -- I love it that much!

Memorial Day -- Chili and cornbread at our son's home.

Everyone was really humoring Nana's request for pictures for fear she might burst into tears 
at any moment!

Dad and his crew!  

This makes me so happy!  It will probably also make me cry, but for now, it makes me happy!

Just "chillaxing" after a fun, but very busy weekend.

Our son left early Tuesday morning and began his new job today.  Cannot wait to hear all about it!

Hope y'all are having a great week!

  10. Hi Carol,
    Lovely pictures and so glad yall had such a good time over the Memorial day weekend.
    Hope Michael loves his job and they get settled in very quickly and love it there.

    Just sent my daughter back to Asheville at 6:15 tonight, always hard to see her go.......but
    it helps if we have a date to look forward to as to when we will see each other again. Just
    thankful for what a lovely time we had with her and what a blessing it was that she was able
    to come and that her hubby shares her with us like that.

    Hope you are doing okay..........know it can be hard..........even tho we are thrilled for them at
    that same time. Just hard not having them around.........

    Well, take care hon,
    Blessings, Nellie
