Memorial Day Weekend

Jared and I don't really like the beach. We would much rather hike in the mountains somewhere or sit under a shady tree and read a book. However, we do enjoy spending time with our family, especially down in Lewes and when it is only 70 degrees outside. :)

Saturday was my perfect beach day. It was sunny, but not hot.  And the water wasn't too cold. Also, the beach was quite empty and it was relaxing. After and before the beach, we were well taken care of and fed lots of good food, including Grottos Pizza!! 

Even though his mom and dad don't like the beach, someone in our family really does enjoy the beach. We built Martin several sand forts so he could splash in the water without the waves hitting him. He played for two or three hours before finally crashing for a nap on Grandma's shoulder. 

On Sunday, Aunt Sarah came to town and we went over to my parent's to visit with her and play some fun games and eat good food. 

And today, Monday, we have been hanging around the house. Martin and I made rolls, read books, banged on some pots and pans, and played in the sprinkler. The sprinkler wore Martin out; he fell asleep in his high chair while eating lunch. Jared finished putting up the fence in the back yard so Martin can't escape and run into the street. He just needs to paint it now. It looks good now still wooden, but the paint will make it look super cute. 

Did you do anything fun this weekend? It has been so long since we have had a holiday. We just enjoyed being a little family and spending time with people that we love. :)
