Memorial Day Weekend Fun with Friends

I'm not really sure if I can lump Wednesday through Sunday together, and call them a long weekend, but I'm doing it. We kicked our vacation off early, with a fun playdate on Wednesday. We went to PlayTown Suwanee and then visited the library. Not quite ready to end our fun, we swung through the drive thru and enjoyed a picnic together at Suwanee Town Center. Which, of course meant playing in the fountains, now that they're on!
Thursday morning, our sweet friends picked us up and took us to the lake, for a short mama + mini getaway. Feeling homesick for California and itching for adventure, it is exactly what my heart needed -- water, fun, and relaxation. I'll let the photos speak for themselves!
Saturday and Sunday were a whirlwind of fun. Saturday our pool officially opened and Benjamin and I were there first thing in the morning! After a couple hours of pool fun, we headed home for lunch and naptime, only to return that afternoon with my husband. Our good friends came over and it was all great fun. Even Benjamin warmed up to the water quite a bit and learned to jump in off the edge! That evening we ordered pizza and got a couple movies on Redbox, for a family night! Sunday, we celebrated our friends at their gender reveal. So sweet.
Ben had Monday off of work for Memorial Day. It was rainy here, which is just as well because we were all just wanting a day to relax together. It truly was a wonderful weekend and I feel so blessed for these freedoms we enjoy because of people who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I hope you had a great holiday!
