Memorial Day Weekend

I don't have any pictures of the beginning of our Memorial Day Weekend because I forgot my camera, but Ellington and I kicked off the weekend by spending Friday night at the fair cabin with my parents.  Reagan, Bryant, LeAnna, and Emerson came on Saturday.  We had lunch with them and then headed back to Starkville because we had company coming!  Robert didn't get to come because he had to work Friday night (I don't know why we are still surprised when that happens!) but we were glad to find out that he had the rest of the weekend off!  Big Bob and MiMi got to our house on Saturday night and stayed with us until Monday.

Ellington Sunday morning before church!  

We had a wonderful service at church and then enjoyed lunch at The Veranda.  After church we came back to the house for picture taking, book reading, and a nap for Ellington!

Sunday evening Robert grilled chicken, shrimp, and veggies...it was all delicious!

After supper, we took Big Bob & MiMi to watch Ellington play in the water.  

On Monday morning we just hung around the house and played with Ellington.  Big Bob & MiMi left after lunch.  We were so glad they were able to come and stay with us!  Ellington had the best time having them here!

On Monday afternoon we bought Ellington a new pool.  After supper she got to go on her first little swim.  She wouldn't sit all the way down in it though!  She pretty much stood the whole time and would swat down every now and then!  I don't know what that was about.  Maybe she thought the water was too cold?  In any case, she still had fun!
