memorial day fun

I love holidays. Any holiday that Mark is off work and can spend time with us is great.

Memorial day is always a time for us all to get together at the pool to kick off summer.

Meredith has six SIX cute bathing suits for this year. You can’t tell it by this picture and

most of that day she didn’t have one on.

Time with cousins is the best. They love hanging out together. Halle and Emma are  drawn to each other a lot, but they sometimes break off into boy / girl games and lots of times they all play together. (usually family)

I made this fruit flag as a snack.  I wasn’t sure if the kids would like it.

Swimming kids are very hungry!

This year was extra fun because papa Ray finished the new fire pit area just in time for this gathering.

The kids loved it!

They all cooked a lot of s’mores, but Tanner definitely cooked and ate the most.

DSC01036-001I am pretty sure this will become a favorite spot to gather and well..

relax may be stretching it a little. Those kids were dangerous with large flaming sticks!
