Canoeing and Crayfish and Cousins, Oh My!

Over Memorial Day weekend, we headed home to visit our family.  On Saturday, we met my parents (Grammy and Grandaddy) at a local park in the National Forest.  We enjoyed a picnic lunch and headed to the swimming area.

Walking across the fun swinging bridge!

Since the water was so cold, we spent most of the time at the edge of the water splashing around as well as canoeing.  This was Will and Harper’s first canoe ride, and they loved it!

After our fun time at the park, we headed to Mimi and Grandaddy’s to have dinner and hang out with the cousins.  My husband’s brother has two little girls, ages 6 and almost 4.  The kiddos had a blast playing in the new bounce house that Mimi and Grandaddy purchased.  How much fun! I think the adults had more fun bouncing in the house than the kiddos!

Getting ready for dinner.  We had a very nice dinner out on the patio.  Here are the kiddos waiting patiently for their food.  We ordered Chinese take-out, which was excellent.

We also celebrated my husband’s birthday (and my birthday a little early).  My mother in law bought some beautiful cupcakes from a local bakery.

We had a fun-filled Memorial Day weekend of canoeing, catching crayfish, eating Chinese food and cupcakes, and playing with the cousins, ha!
