Memorial Weekend 2012
I love that Memorial Weekend is kind of the unofficial kick off to summer and our weekend felt like the perfect start. Friday Ben took off early to come to the schools assembly to see Alicia (and a few other school mates) get an award for leadership.SO much nicer. When we were out running errands we went to Lowes and grabbed some raspberry and strawberry plants to go with the blueberry plants we got last month. Those went in our backyard. In a few years it will be so nice to just walk outside and have berries. Saturday evening we rented Captain America for the kids. They had seen Avengers and wanted to know more about each character. They liked Avengers better. :) Sunday Ben took Alicia on her date for the month. They headed to Portland so she could visit Voodoo Doughnuts. Ethan and I made a visit to Shivers. Then that afternoon some friends of Ben's invited us and another family over for a traeger BBQ cookoff. That was great fun and really yummy. Ben and I were also lucky enough to score the meat leftovers!!! Monday we took the leftovers down to my parents house and were pleasantly surprised when my uncle and cousin were there. I haven't seen them in MANY years so it was nice to see and hug them.
