Memorial Day Weekend...

5.26.2008


was an enjoyable one for us here. It meant that we finally all had a moment to reconnect with nothing else pressing to do. Just time together...it felt good. It meant that family was visiting and that we got to spend time at the cottage together which included a perfect day weather-wise and thus grilling out and getting some yummy burgers off the grill cooked by non other than the "Grill Sargent" Ken (still Boca burgers for E though!).
Since the weather was so agreeable Ethan and I opted to take the canoe out. We've never taken Zoey out before (as she is so cautious at times when it comes to new things, and has been especially so regarding swimming) and so this time when I told her that mama and papa were going to take the boat out for a bit we were surprised when she said "I want to come to!" and "Where's my life jacket?" So, this Memorial Day weekend marked Zoey's first trip out in the canoe. It was AWESOME and we were so proud of her and amazed yet again by the knowledge that when she's ready for something, she's simply ready. We're looking forward to many more trips out on the lakes here this summer as a family now and making an afternoon of it now that we know that it's something that we all can enjoy together. I can't wait to see the pictures of all three of us in the boat on the lake and will share them when my MIL shares them with us.
Hope everyone had a wonderful, memorable and safe holiday!
