Memorial Day Weekend {Part 2 . . finally}

I meant to finish posting about Memorial Day weekend earlier in the week, but I didn't get to it. I still wanted to share about the rest of our weekend since my family was here, so here we go . . .

Before they arrived I baked some mixed berry muffins (blueberry and raspberry to be festive.) We enjoyed them all weekend, they were so yummy!!

I had some flowers on my patio. This is just one of them, I had 2 more in red.

My parents stopped to visit my grandparents (my Dad's parents) on there way here. The 2nd night they were here we looked at a bunch of old pictures my grandma gave my dad. There were pictures of my dad when he was little and my grandparents and great grandparents when they were young! It was so fun looking at all of them!

Then the weekend flew by. We did some shopping, dad helped us with yard work (since we have a pretty large yard) and then on Sunday we went to the lake. You can see that post here.

Memorial Day I had a few appetizers out for us while we were getting ready to grill steaks and hot dogs.

I'm not looking the best in this pic. It was at the end of the day and I was tired and kinda washed out

We also enjoyed some shrimp and had the BEST, spicy cocktail sauce - thanks to my brothers girlfriend who brought it!

I roasted a big pan of veggies to go with our dinner

We enjoyed some wonderful wine my Mom brought back from a local winery where they live in Texas.

And then by the end of the night, we were all pooped after going to the lake the day before. We lounged around in our pj's. This is my brother and his girlfriend chilling on our couch. Mr. Big found him a comfy spot on Ashley's lap!

And here we are!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Stay cool - I don't know about where you live, but it is SO hot and humid here! yuk!
