We had a busy, busy Memorial weekend. On Friday night Grandma Jan came over to babysit Katelyn so Kyle and I could head to Long Beach to help our friend Aj, pastor of Origins Church in Long Beach, celebrate graduating with his Master’s degree in Theology. It was so great to be able to visit with friends we haven’t seen in many months. It did feel weird not to have Katelyn with us because we do so much as a family, but it was so nice to have a date night with Kyle.
Saturday night Uncle Brendan and Auntie Ashlyn came over to watch Katelyn so Kyle’s parents and Kyle and I could go to a wedding at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook. One of Kyle’s good friends from Junior High married his college girlfriend and the wedding was beautiful, a little chilly, but beautiful. Kyle had a great time reminiscing with old friends. Meanwhile, Katelyn learned from her Uncle B how to climb up the sofa into the window sill and bang and blow kisses on the window.
Sunday was a day of rest, and that’s exactly what we did! Katelyn slept in, yes! And then took a nice long nap, so that I could take a nice, long afternoon nap as well. I was so worn out from being out late 2 nights in a row so it was nice to be home all day with no plans.
Monday we celebrated Memorial Day at the beach house with Kyle’s family. We love going down there and relaxing with family. Kyle’s dad also makes the best filet on the bbq, yum, yum! Katelyn had fun showing off her walking skills, going for a swim, and then of course walking around naked. She refused to put on her diaper and clothes so we had a naked jay bird hanging out on the patio until the chilly wind forced her to put some clothes on to warm up. All in all it was a great day and Katelyn had fun with her Grandma and Grandpa Circle, her Uncle B, and Auntie Leah.
