After this memorial day weekend was over, Ryan and I sat down to read and realized that we did a lot more over this past 3 day weekend then we thought! A little description of it all, with pictures to come soon!
Friday: Dinner at Michael's in the Old Market with Sara and Mike (yum, yum) , an uneventful and nonscoring Royals baseball game, and Amberly's first trip to the casinos in Iowa! Ryan won $40!
Saturday: SLEPT IN! Enjoyed a warm run to prepare for the 1/2 marathon, Enjoyed a little trip to Mulhall's (pretty flowers and fountains), Played Catch with the football, Watched the movie Marley & Me (We highly recommend it), and sat on the porch and enjoyed a beer or two and a nice chat.
Sunday: SLEPT IN AGAIN! woo, went to church, mini-golfed 1 game, shopped for groceries at Hy-Vee, Mike and Sara came over (brought us yummy tiramasu) and played board games, headed to the movies to see Night at the Museum 2! It was a funny and family-friendly movie!
Monday: SLEPT IN AGAIN?! YES WE DID! Went to Gallup so Ryan could finish a project, Went for a run over the Pedestrian bridge, headed home for lunch and realized that the TV didn't work...bummer, Took a trip to Scheel's, bought a frisbee, "frizzed it up" in the park, played some more mini golf (3 games this time), Met some new friends at our apartment complex, and enjoyed foot rubs, reading and relaxing before the work week began!
Yes, we were quite busy, but it was all "fun stuff." We hope you all had a great memorial day weekend and enjoyed the nice weather. We are so lucky to have such amazing men and women to protect our country so we can enjoy the simple things in life (like a new frisbee or a chat on the porch!). So next time you pray, thank God for the troops who give us the opportunity to live in freedom every day!
