Memorial Day Celebrations

Since we did not go camping for Memorial Day weekend this year we tried to find some new ways to celebrate. Sunday morning we met up with Candace, Matt, Drew, my dad and my brother Matt to go to the Strawberry Festival in Pungo. There was a ton of food, carnival rides, entertainment, a petting zoo and a large military display. Izabel had a ball riding some of the kiddy rides with Drew but it was super hot so we did not stay too long!

Tanner was there too...he was too short to ride !
After the festival we headed over to Candace's house to hang out by the pool and have a cookout. We swam for a while and then ate dinner. The boys headed down to the dock to go fishing and Candace and I took the kids for a walk. Drew drove Izabel around in his Escalade power wheel which was really cute! I brought dessert which was Red, White, and Blue cupcakes! They were a little more complicated than I had anticipated but I think they came out pretty cute and I was really excited about them :)

Izabel can swim around with just her vest now!
Tanner is slowly starting to be ok in the water
Daddy got to play too!
Red, white and blue cupcakes!
Monday Noah had to go back to work, but me and the kids got up and took a long walk to the park! Once again it was super hot so we decided to pick up my Dad and head down to Ocean Breeze for a few hours. Izabel was really tired and had a bit of a meltdown so we ended up leaving after about an hour, but it was nice to cool off. After Noah got home we headed over to Angie and Jimmy's house for a cookout. The boys drank beer and played corn hole the whole time and the girls sat around and chatted. We had a nice evening and a it was a nice end to the long weekend!
