our little memorial day weekend

Ok, here we go. Picture time.
But first, I have to apologize for misleading you yesterday. Alabama is not where I grew up ... but "sweet home alabama" was just too catchy not to use as a post title. We were, however, in Alabama with family. So, basically it was just like being home.

We drove to Alabama and flew back to Kansas City.
I prefer planes over cars.
If you ride in a car with husband for 11 hours you will be required to answer trivia questions such as "who flew the Spirit of St. Louis?" and "in what city of Ohio did the Wright brothers come from?"
I hate trivia.
I hate games.

So, I pretended to be listening while instead concentrating very hard on my bubble blowing.

Without further ado ... I bring you Alabama.
Three amazing days on the lake.
One awesome boat.
Jack.
Family.
And Cody the dog.

No editing (sorry) ... too much laundry. Oh and work. Who knew you had to actually go back to work after vacation? Ugh.
The End.

P.S. I started out with about 55 pictures.
Then 45.
Then 35.
You get the picture. Speaking of pictures, if you want to see more, just let me know. I have a whole computer full of them. But, I didn't want to scare you away just yet. So, you got 16.

  3. Fun!!! Your nephew Jack is almost as cute as my baby Fletcher. Yup I said almost and i'm not even ashamed. I'm one of those mommas. Seriously though. Cute baby. Top 10. Top 5 even.

  4. I'm with you on the picture thing. I'm a complete nut case when it comes to taking photos & then of course I want to share them on my blog. Pretty sure some people get overwhelmed when they look at my posts. Oh well. In my opinion, you can never have enough pictures! :)

    I'm not a creep - promise.

  7. Jack is a darn cute baby. I almost used a curse word, but he's too sweet to have cursing be in the same sentence as his name.

    I'm jealous that you have a leaf friend.

  8. Looks like a wonderful weekend. Any weekend I can be on a boat is a good one. I was stuck in the humidity over the weekend, so I may as well have been in a lake with how drenched I was.

  23. That baby looks like a super great boat driver (driver? Sailor? I'm lacking in my boating terminology). I would totally trust him.
    Looks like you had an amazing weekend! I would definitely endure 11 hours of trivia for that :)

  26. Ughh...road trips!!! You are your sister look IDENTICAL!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. roadtrips are the best.

    The little guy looks so serious at the steering wheel, I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I totally think you shoulda kept 45 pictures.

    You are lovely and it looks like y'all had a great time. I think husbands just enjoy having otherwise useless knowledge just to annoy their wives. I wouldn't have known those either, nor can I blow a bubble, so I would've been having less fun than you!

    :) p.s. cute dog and cute baby

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow- what a weekend. Road trips are too much fun. And that little guy is too adorable! So jealous of your time spent on a boat soaking up the sun. xo

  36. Just read your comment. I promise that's not a tattoo but a belly painting! All the rage for preggos apparently. Lol. I do have a tattoo though, on my foot actually. I assure you, it hurt like hell. I probably should of just emailed you this but I'm lazy. Happy Thursday!

    today, we let my nephew run around naked. he peed all over the place in small puddles-like a dog. then he pooped a legit turd right on the floor!

    ReplyDelete
