Rewind to Memorial Day

Ahhhhh, currently both babies are nice! Now I can blog about Memorial day weekend.
Friday, we went with my friend Amanda and her little girl Neely to the Fayetteville Botanical Gardens. I think this place has been open for a little over a year. It was so beautiful and had a great kids area. It was about 80 degrees that day, so needless to say, the kids were worn out after running all around that place! We went and had lunch at Marketplace after that and ended our fun playdate with a 90 cent dessert special...we had choc cake and ice cream and Amanda got the peach cobbler. Perfect ending!

Look at these sweet friends!

Here are the kids playing in the water:

This bridge was in the kids area and leads up to a giant birds nest!

Little Cruz had fun too!

Here we were trying to get a cute shot of them holding hands and walking. Problem was they grabbed the wrong hands and kept going in funny!

And this was the last shot of the day. We told them to hug and as you can see, they are about to fall over...which they did...and then the tears came...good thing we were leaving for lunch!

Saturday was a busy day! We got up early and went out on the boat for the first time this season. My mom and dad went with us. No one got was still really cold. But, we did have a nice brunch on the boat and even managed to wear Maddox out again...he fell asleep on Grandad on the way back to the dock!
Maddox was so pumped to finally get on the boat!

Cruz was can't tell here, but he hated his life jacket and cried a lot!

Grandad and Maddox

I love this cute pic...Grandmommy (that's what he calls her) and Maddox

And he's OUT!

Saturday afternoon we played (in the RAIN) golf with our friends the Martinovic's in a Grill and Chill Golf Tourney. It was a golf scramble and believe it or not, I didn't do all that bad! Its been around 2 years since I've played! We tied with several others for 2nd or 3rd, can't remember. It was fun...but I was more about the grill and chill part than the actual game!

Sunday we were SO tired, we stayed in most of the day. Again, it was another rainy day. I am so sick of this weather!

Monday it was off to the lake again with the Martinovic's and their boys. We made it an early lake day again since it was cloudy and rainy....and because Maddox ended up getting so tired and throwing a fit. Thank goodness you can tune him out by making the boat go fast!:) I didn't get any pics of this lake day unfortunately...forgot my camera:(.

Up for this weekend: My sis and her family are coming up. We're gonna try out a new 3 seater tube we got at Sam's! Its huge...hope the boat can pull it! Sunday is Maddox's 2nd Birthday Party. Its a train party....he's gonna love it! Till I blog again...
