We celebrated Memorial Day in a big way Sunday with Joe's parents. Joe and I had a happy reunion with the children after spending several days in New Orleans. Carson and Mary Ashley stayed with my parents, and Christian and Emma with Joe's. We appreciate our parents so much for taking care of the children and giving them such happy memories of visits to their grandparents. As much fun as it was to have a little time away, Joe and I couldn't wait to get everyone back together. And it was great to spend the afternoon with Joe's parents, my brother- and sister-in-law and our nephews Hollis and Reese. We enjoyed grilling out while the children fished, swam and played on a water slide. After a full day of lakeside fun, Joe and I enjoyed the ride home with our van full of wiggly, giggly children. Bring on the summer!
