Memorial Day Scrapbook

Hello again lovely peeps! How was everyone's weekend? My weekend went "swimmingly", no pun intended! The DH and I spent most of our Memorial Day over at our friends' house. However, I did squeeze in a two and a half mile walk with Stella and Liberty on the beach before we began the day's festivities a little bit after noon. From everyone's Instagram photos and blogs, I can see that we shared a lot in common that day: barbecues, pool parties, beaches, drinks, yummy food, and good company! Between the barbecue, noodles, egg rolls, and desserts, I was doomed to overeat! Oh, but it was so worth it! That, and I had another great time with friends and the DH. That is what life is suppose to be all about. Right?

Who's this crazy lady screaming across the pool? 

Some people could not celebrate with their friends and families on this day. They never returned. 
Wishing their loved ones peace and comfort for their ultimate sacrifice.

  5. Sounds like you had a great weekend! The dogs look so content at the beach/pool. Our boardwalk/beach doesn't allow dogs anymore till after Labor Day. Luckily there's a beach a few minutes away that turns into a dog beach after 6 pm :)
