Weekend Memories--Memorial Weekend 2014


Chewbacca Filling in an Empty Spot for Dinner
Ugh. It is over. 

As I floated in the pool yesterday, I thought about how sad it was that the weekend had to end. It had been a fantastic weekend.

We did our big celebration party on Sunday to allow the everyone the opportunity to recoup and get ready to resume the workweek grind today. But the party on Sunday was awesome. The pool was fabulous, the food fantastic, and the fun was non-stop.
Dinner before the Smoker

Holding the party a day early allowed us to relax and enjoy the Monday holiday even a bit more. No stress, no fuss, no bother and lots of leftovers.

Sunday was all in. The ribs in the smoker, the salads, the games. Playing with the waterproof video camera in the pool.

Isn't that the way that holidays are supposed to be?

And the day after the celebration is for relaxing and contemplating the very holiday just experienced. The family gathered and it was fun and good.

Memorial Day weekend is the beginning of the summer season. Everywhere, it seems, graduations are in full swing, fortunately we do not have anyone graduating.

And so now, we begin the long slide into summer and my all too short favorite season. The pool is ready an warm--I got it up to 80 degrees. 

Let the good times roll.
