Memorial Day Weekend

First and foremost thanks to all of our active duty and retired military!  We appreciate everything you do for our country!  Thanks to my brother who is currently serving and all of the men in my family who have served - we love you!

We have been enjoying the summer weather and relaxing with family and friends.  There has been a lot of swimming, Jimmy Buffet, grilling, cold beverages, etc. this weekend!  Nana and Poppa came over on Friday night for Nana's birthday dinner ...
Mr. ESPN found the 6 candle ... not sure why he didn't get some plain candles ... this was the girls (Chatty) singing Happy Birthday to my mom.  I think Bia sort of thought it was her birthday and just smiled.

Yesterday we had our neighbor's birthday party ... we all had a great time.  It's so nice having such great neighbors!  As I mentioned before I volunteered to make the birthday cake.  It was my first time using fondant - it was so much fun.  Thanks to Sara and the Kingston Queen for encouraging me to try it out.  I loved using it!

Can you tell what it is???

The birthday boy and Goggle Girl

Uncle Greg, his mom and sister went to Hawaii the other week.  His mom saw the following outfits and bought them for the girls.  Can you say too freakin' cute?  My mom and I were laughing hysterically as Chatty danced around.  In fact Chatty and Bia are dancing to Elvis right now in their grass skirts!
