On Saturday, we went to Brett's baseball game. I was really hoping that Jacob would watch Brett and get excited about baseball, but there were other things to do, like hang out with Jenna (who has candy in her mouth in the picture below, by the way) and play with Jenna's phone.
(I think this might be the first picture I've put on the blog of my pup-niece Gabby. Meet Gabby, my pup-niece...)
Later that evening, we went to a cookout at Garett and Rachael's. Their house and yard are so nice, and there are so many things for the kids to do.
We took a quick peek at the inside, too.
I've never seen the inside of a caboose, but I can definitely see how it can be turned into a really cool hang-out space for the kids.
What, you don't have an airplane in your yard, either?!
After playing in the clubhouse, and on the swings, trampoline, scooters, and playing football, I was pretty sure Jacob was never coming home.
The icing on the cake-- pun intended-- was celebrating Frank's birthday with a delicious ice cream cake!
(I spy a cake-shark lurking in the background...!)
Sidenote: Grandma may or may not have given my 9 month old his first taste of ice cream... :) :)
The next day we went to Herrinfesta Italiana, which is a festival held every year in the neighboring town. Of course, my little dudes were decked out in their Italia shirts!
Frank even got in on the action and took Jenna on a ride!
The weekend always goes too quickly, but we will remember Memorial Day Weekend 2013 for great weather, good food, and lots of fun!
