Memorial Day Weekend

First of all I hope everyone took a moment to give thanks go the men and women who have given their lives for our country and those that have fought or are currently fighting for America. Thank you so much, we appreciate you more than you know!!

This weekend was a blast! We left Friday for Port Isabel and had a wonderful time together! The three of us went with Kyles parents, DeeDee and Snow, and then our friends Jason and Leroy. The boys main objective was fishing and us girls were on a mission to start our summer tans! =) Saturday while the boys were fishing DeeDee and I took Keaton to the beach. Keaton wasn't too fond of the sand and walked with his toes pointed to the sky. If I poured wet sand on his feet or anything he would start rubbing his feet on my legs to get it off, hehe, it was funny! He also didn't like the seagulls much. I spilt some goldfish and 4 seagulls landed and started coming closer and he wouldn't take his eyes off them and would yell, "Mom-meee, BIRDS!!!" and run to me. He did love the waves though and we got our exercise by walking into the ocean to fill up his bucket with water then back to the shore to pour it out (repeated a thousand times)! =) The boys all limited out on fish so they had a great day too!
My poor baby really needs a haircut!! =)

Saturday the boys fished again and this time we headed to the beach side pool instead of the actually beach. I love the beach, I do, but when you have food with a toddler, cameras, and bags of stuff the sand can get really old! Keaton loved the pool and lots of other kids were in and out so he had little friends to play with.

I think his all time favorite thing to do all weekend was sit and pretend to drive the boat. I sat in that boat all morning before we would leave while he drove and drove! He is also obsessed with his life jacket and his new mini-chair DeeDee and Snow bought him! Last year he HATED his life jacket because it was so high on his neck and uncomfortable. I picked this one out and he loves it so anyone looking for one for your kiddo, this one from Academy is fantastic! =) I hope yall had a great weekend too!!

Lovin' his jacket and chair!!
