Happy Sunday everyone! In the US, this weekend is a holiday (Monday being the actual holiday). It’s Memorial Day. For those of you not from here, it’s a day for us to remember our fallen soldiers and those who still serve today. This weekend always causes me to reflect on the men and women who serve our country and those who have given their lives for it. I’m proud to have family that have served: my grandfather, several uncles, and some cousins. I love you all and everything you’ve done for us 😀

This week was fun! It was rainy, so we stayed in for the most part, but yesterday we took a trip to the local zoo and Liam had a blast! Today we are going to a cookout with friends and I’m really looking forward to it. Any adult time is good for this stay-at-home mama 😆 What have you been up to this week?
