Memorial Day Memories

I had a long four day weekend and it was exactly what I needed!  My Mom & Dad drove to visit from Arkansas and spoiled us all rotten.  It was so good to see my Mommy & Daddy I miss them every day.  If you live close to your parents don't ever take it for granted. 

They drove up on Friday and got in pretty late.  I took off work Friday and cleaned my house from top to bottom.  I also had a little photo shoot with my friend Jenne and her cute kiddos that morning.  (FYI-I got covered in chiggers from laying on the ground taking photos....been itching like crazy!!!) Yikes!

Saturday morning Mom and I went shopping at Wal-Mart & Super Target.  Then we took Connor to a splash park.  He had a lot of fun!  I wish they had one a little closer to where we live and a little cleaner too :/  Regardless it was a cool relief for the hot Texas summer day. 

That night we went to Olive Garden for an early birthday dinner.  Our family loves the Olive Garden!  We always go there when we go out to eat.  I got a black tie mousse cake for dessert.  I'm turning 30-ish-er-ONE tomorrow.....

Yay for PicMonkey!!!!
They now have collage making available on their site!
Fun with Daddy and Poppy at the splash park
Sunday night we all ate dinner with Terence's family and had some yummy BBQ hamburgers.  All the kids got to play outside and we had a good visit with both our families together in one place. 

We also went to Abuelos on Monday night before I had to start back to work today.  I got another yummy free birthday dessert and Connor loaded up on cheese dip.  If there is one thing I know....this kids LOVES some cheese. 
Nana & Poppy got Connor a motorcycle and that's all he can talk about right now.  He LOVES his motorcycle :-)  Can you say spoiled?  Connor says "Thank you Nana & Poppy for the motorcycle, clothes, DVDS, swimming pool, and sugars and hugs"  I miss you already!  He's been walking around the house going "Nana??? Poppy???  Where you go?"

Connor wanted Nana to hold him all the time.  He loves his Nana! 
Doesn't my Mom look great ya'll?  She's lost over 30 pounds in the past year!  Hot Nana!




 We love you all and had the best visit! 
 
Come back soon!!!
 
Love,
 
Becky, Terence, & Connor

Sounds like fun - except for the bug bites while taking photos part....I've definitely done that several times too. I've started carrying a little bug spray with my camera stuff which sort of helps.
