Memorial Day Weekend RecapTuesday, May 27, 2014
Getting back into the swing of things after a long weekend is ROUGH, lemme tell ya. Especially when that weekend was lovely and full of gorgeous weather and fun activities.
Shall we have a weekend recap?
As you know, Clayton's birthday was on Friday and our evening was filled with cake and family celebration. Clayton requested chocolate cake with chocolate chip cookie dough frosting and we had his parents, brother and sister-in-law and both grandmothers over to indulge with us.
And of course we ate our burgers (ON PRETZEL BUNS!!!!!) with melted, Amish Monterey Jack cheese. Man, I have MISSED summer grilling!
|Oh, artsy Bloomington.|
|Isn't this breathtaking!?|
After hiking, we showered and headed over to Colby and Ireli's house for some Memorial Day grillin' and playtime with their kiddos. They made us HUGE, delicious T-bone steaks and it was nice to catch up and sit in the sun (I even got a small sunburn!).
Finally, Clayton and I continued to be infatuated with the nest of baby robins living under the roof of our porch. This weekend we discovered that there are four babies and after doing some quick research, we learned that both the Mama robin and the Papa robin take turns bringing worms to their waiting offspring. We saw multiple feedings and spent a lot of time sitting behind the patio door, spying.
Sorry for the blurry picture. The lighting under our porch isn't so great and since I don't want to disturb the nest in any possible way, I have to rely on the zoom on my cell phone. But can't you see their little beaks? So cute! They have feathers now and everything. Won't be too long before they're ready to fly!
I hope your weekend was awesome, too!
