Memorial Day Weekend

You can't go wrong when your weekend starts with birthday party fun and date night! 
Saturday morning we headed to Terre Haute to celebrate little Miss T's 4 Birthday. Her mom and I were best friends in college so it is always nice when we can get together, because it definitely doesn't happen as much as we like! I still remember when we both found out we were pregnant with our first. I sent her a message on Facebook saying "Guess what" and she responds with a "You're pregnant?" and her own "guess what" :) That was an awesome moment--both of us pregnant with our first at the exact same time...our due dates were within just a week of each other! Daws was definitely excited to kick off our weekend with cake, a pinata, and chasing around cute girls :) 
Enjoying a sucker from the Pinata! How cute is the birthday girl?!

My Dad was in town for the weekend (yay!), so he watched the boys for us so we could escape for a few hours for date night. We decided on Maggiano's. I don't think you can ever go wrong with Italian food, wine, and jazz music. Our meal ended with a pretty awesome (NOT) debit card rejection due to a fraud protection that was placed on our card. Thank god, we were still able to use the card at the ATM to get money out. Apparently, some douche from New York tried to use the card so the bank issued a fraud alert and froze my card. Awesome, huh? It was even more awesome that my debit card was frozen over a holiday weekend, so there wasn't anything I could do about it until today. Ugh.
Oh well, it was handled and we had a great time regardless :)
We heart date night the most. 
The rest of the weekend was spent just hanging out at the house, grilling out, watching the Indy 500, and the boys playing with their favorite Papa :) Oh, and a little shopping to boot {gotta love the sales at Old Navy!} Here are a few pictures from our weekend:
Love, love. love this picture!
Our master grilling team for the weekend-pretty cute if I do say so myself :)

Ready, set, use your imagination, and go-Daws and Papa's "zoo" ;)  

No holiday weekend would be complete without a little T-ball!
Memorial Day flair for the table :)
Thank you to all those, past and present, who are serving/have served this country to make our lives safe and provide freedom. Much appreciation and admiration!
FYI-When your husband works at a dealership he doesn't get Memorial Day off. Totally suckey.
We managed to muster up a smile though for a holiday pic. ;)

Hope everyone enjoyed their extra long weekend!
