Momorial Day

My mom was sick on Mother's day, so we hosted Momorial Day on Sunday - a celebration of all things Mom with a side of Americana.

Penelope dressed up for the occasion (of course).

We had a BBQ bash with lots of red, white and blue. Jake grilled sliders and I made all of the fixings.

We got a baby pool for Addie, which she insisted on skinny dipping in for most of the day. This is the only photo I could find of her partially clothed. I wish that I could share the one of her streaking through the backyard while Penny chased her and licked water off of her, but I am afraid that someone might call child protective services on my family.

Did you do anything special over the holiday weekend?


  1. Amazing blog, I found your space from Our Cozy Cubbyhole. I'm actually hosting my first link party tomorrow, highlight photo posts (instagram or otherwise) - I think your Memorial Weekend post would be amazing to share! Hope to see you tomorrow!
