The Best Memorial Day I've Ever Had

It really was!

I loved Jeff not going to work in the morning,

I loved putting the American flag we got from Bruce and Carolyn Cameron for our wedding to good use and letting it say hello to all passersby,

I loved going to Target by myself while Jeff put Jude down,

I loved getting a beach umbrella and "healthy" snacks,

I loved getting a Diet Coke with Vanilla and Cream (and a Cherry Limeade for Jeff) at Sonic right after Target,

I loved packing up my car with all the accouterments to keep my baby and his satin skin happy and protected,

I loved scooting over to Laguna with my boys and getting a good parking spot,

I loved giving Jude his first taste of the sand (loved it) and sea water (unimpressed),


I loved relaxing under the umbrella and unknowingly crisping my shins and tops of my feet,


I loved spending time with great friends at the beach,

I loved getting lunch with these great friends at La Sirena afterwards,

I loved changing Jude's biggest ever blow-out diaper in my car in the parking lot at La Sirena Grill and the mess that ensued (if I'm ever worried Jude's not "regular" I just need to leave the house),

I loved getting home in one piece and putting Jude down for a nap,

I loved getting treats and watching a movie on Apple TV with Jeff,

I loved it all.

I'll remember it as the best Memorial Day of all time.


Sorry your handsome face got half cut out, honey.

Do you guys live in mission viejo/Lake forest area near that Target/Sonic? We live about 1/4 mile from there.
