Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day. I hope your day was one that you were able to share with family and friends.

We had family over for a pool party and barbecue.

The children loved going down the slide.

And jumping off the big rocks into the pool.

Mr. Cactus challenged our nephew Tanner to a race down the slide.

Mr. Cactus upped the competition by going down backwards.

Then he challenged Tanner to see who could make the biggest splash doing a BACK FLIP.
(Who is the kid here?)
Yes, that is Mr. Cactus. I hope he can walk tomorrow.

Tanner kept up pretty good! Our group gave him a score of 10.
clap, clap, clap!

We must look very "cool" wearing our goggles.

It just wouldn't be Memorial Day with out grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Uncle Gary made his famous salsa.

A little more swimming after dinner.

By evening with the sun ready to go down, we had worn all the kids out and it was time for families to head home. I think the kids will sleep well tonight. Mr. Cactus too.

Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos of your family time together. I'm sure it will be memorable for a long Mr. Cactus o.k.???

Looks like fun was the name of the game. Your pool and the yard are beautiful! I'll bet you want to spend lots of time outside!
