Following a busy week and a crazy few days at the ballpark, we enjoyed a much needed low-key Memorial Day. After sleeping in, Eric and Ellie enjoyed some quality time in the pool while I caught up on a few things.
Ellie has clearly perfected the art of "Rest and Relaxation!"
The weather took an abrupt turn for the worse, so we headed inside just before a large storm popped up. Still too tired and lazy to cook, I convinced Eric that we needed Mexican...because, ya'll, what is more American than that?
Meanwhile, Eli enjoyed a fun day with his buddy. They played in the creek and went swimming at the waterpark. Every time I texted to see if he was ready to come home, the answer was "NO!" In fact, he requested to stay until 9:00, bless his heart! I think he's made a good, good buddy.
I would be remiss is I didn't take a moment to acknowledge the men and women who made our relaxing day possible. Each soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms left behind a legacy that lives inside the eyes of a little girl floating in her pool and through the laughter of two sweet boys who can play in a creek without fear or oppression. May we never forget!
