Memorial Day

What a WONDERFUL weekend spent with my family!! I'm a stay at home mom so I'm always alone with the kids so I just love it on the weekends or evenings when Kyle is home and we're all 4 together!! This weekend we got to spend all day Thursday- Monday (that's 5 whole days!!) together and I loved every second of it!

We headed to the bay house in Port Isabel on Thursday and spent the long weekend fishing, laying out, reading books, going to South Padre beach, watching movies, having some drinks and eating delicious food!!

Aunt Amanda and Uncle Brad gave Keaton a spiderman fishing pole and he LOVES it! He was really good at casting it and he fished every single day! The first day we went out fishing for about 3 hours and he never once whined or complained, which is no small feat for a 3 year old! Hell, I'm 27 and thought about complaining many times, haha! He kept trying to act macho and he'd say, "There sure are a lot of fisherman out today." hehe!

Karter had a lot of fun too, she was an angel and I never once felt overwhelmed with the kiddos, thanks to the help of DeeDee and Snow! This was Karter's first trip to the beach and she was a little scared. She ended up warming up to the waves and stuff but poor girl had sand all over her face and in her mouth because she sucks her thumb.

I kept telling Kyle that my heart was just so happy! I love quality time together and it brings me so much joy to see my kids having a great time and knowing that we're making memories with them that we'll remember forever!! I hope yall had a great holiday weekend! God bless our troops, past and present!! Thank you for all you do for our country!!
