We had a great Memorial Day weekend. It was a beautiful weekend. We the garden all planted, did our yearly tradition of going to Tahoma National Cemetery to go see all the flags set out, and had a barbecue with Adam and Chelsea. It was a nice relaxing weekend and it was Nate's first paid holiday and he loved it.
Anna and Scott met us at the cemetery and were there for a little bit. It was fun to walk around and I love the feeling when I walk around there. It is so peaceful and I feel so close to heaven. I love teaching my girls at a young age the importance of respecting those that have served our country.
This year we actually knew someone buried at the cemetery and it was cool to go see his gravestone and Paige put a penny on it to let him know we paid him a visit.
Nate loves the garden and we have been excited to get it all planted and to watch it grow. Nate goes out every day and checks on his plants. He loves it and I am excited to eat all the food from it. The blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries are getting really close. We planted russet potatoes, red potatoes, snap peas, pumpkins, zucchini, carrots, onions, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, roma tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes. It looks so nice all planted! Paige also loved to help and she has her own area of dirt to play in and she loves being outside.
Nate created this cool little fence to go around some of the plants to prevent the rabbits that roam around to not eat our garden. It looks really nice.
Addison came over to play Memorial Day weekend too. These two have so much fun together and keep each other busy. We went over to the lake to feed the ducks and they played inside and outside all day long.
They both really loved riding these bikes. It was so cute to watch there big smiles and listening to them laughing and squealing.
Paige is still loving tball and is going to be sad when it is done. I am so glad she loves it and she look so cute in her uniform.
The past few weeks I have been working on this project for Paige's kindergarten musical. They are doing the three little pig opera. So I created the three little pig's houses and a forest area for the wolf to be at. They turned out so good and it was so much fun to do!
Nate turned 33 on the 5th of June! It was a simple day but we tried to make Nate feel as special as we could and he seemed to really enjoy the day. Paige insisted on having 33 candles so it was a lot of blow out. I love this picture with Paige helping him.
Then this past Friday was the school's carnival. It was a pretty rainy day but Paige had a lot of fun. They had some fun carnival type games, Paige got her face painted, she got some cotton candy and other prizes. They also had some big blow up slides and obstacles outside. Paige and Addison spent at least an hour going back and forth between the two. They had so much fun! The first time Paige went down the big slide one you could see the pure look of terror on her face when she got to the top and I wasn't sure if she would go down but she did and loved it. By the end her hands were up in the air every time she went down. It was a fun evening for these two!
