|Here we go! Daddy, open your eyes while you drive! :)|
|Her first cast!|
|She's got one!|
Brailyn catching her first fish! Ignore all of our jibber jabber and focus on the cute little country girl! Ignore the horrible camera work at the end too! LOL Apparently I forgot to hit stop!
|She did not want to touch the line! LOL|
|So proud of herself!|
|She got another one!|
On Sunday, my parents came up to spend the night and go to church with us. Brailyn didn't know they were coming and was very excited when she got up and saw them. I'm so glad she loves all of her grandparents so much.

|I just love these two pictures! Someone thinks Daddy is awfully funny!|
|Popup and Gramma!|
On Memorial day, we got up and had a lazy morning, then Brailyn got to go swim in her swimming pool for the first time this summer. She had a blast! She ended up getting in it two more times today. We had yummy grilled burgers for lunch, then I made some "appetizers" that we snacked on that were delicious!!! I also made some festive chocolate covered strawberries too! I love holidays and getting to try new fun and festive recipes! While Brailyn napped(Lainee got up way early from hers), we all watched two episodes of Walker Texas Ranger. We are crazy party people! Then when she got up, we headed outside to swim and let Lainee have her first experience in her pool! She like the pool okay, but decided it was more fun to crawl out of it and hang on to the side of Sissy's pool and let the water out. She crawled all the way around the outside of that pool and got completely dirty and didn't seem to care one bit. I have decided that she will be our child that does not mind getting dirty at all! For supper, Jody's parents came up and we had a Fish Fry. It was delicious! Hubby makes some good fish! And the best part is that I didn't have to do anything!
|Wearing Neena's shoes that she wore as a baby! All three of her sweet girls have worn them. We waited a little to long to put Lainee's feet in there, but we made it work! Lobe it!|
|Happy Memorial Day!|
|My sweet baby inherited her momma's picture taking abilities! ;) SHe looked too cute though!|
|My festive strawberries!|
|Lainee's first time in her pool! Not quite sure what to think. Oh, and we haven't bought a bathing suit yet. :)|
|Really starting to enjoy it!|
|If you look closely, you can see the water splashing. She was having fun!|
|This is how we spent most of our time at the pool.|
|Sweet blue-eyed angel!|
|Trying to get a good picture of all the dirt on her.|
***A little added note: Lainee took her first step this weekend too!!!!!***
We had such a fun couple of days, but we also try to take time to remember just why we get to celebrate a holiday like today and enjoy it in peace. We are so thankful for ALL of our men and women who have served for our country and all those who paid the ultimate price. Without them, weekends like this would not exist, and there is no way we could ever repay them! Thanks to two special men in our lives, my uncle, Anthony Young, and our very own Papa Dale! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
