Memorial Weekend Recap Part One

I hope everyone had a fun and festive Memorial Day weekend.  There is no possible way I could put you through this weekend recap in just one post.  I think I took 5496813 pictures.  The weekend started out cold here in sweet home Appomattox, but we didn't let that stop us from relaxing by the pool or heading up to the lake and enjoying a nice chilly boat ride.  We had some good quality family time, and I discovered that my girl LOVES water (bring on the summer!).  She really couldn't have cared less that the pool felt like it was below freezing temps... she wanted in.  It made for some super cute pictures, but mama only made it in ankle deep because I wasn't nearly as excited about getting into the frigid water as she was.  Before I start the camera roll, I must say that every day is so much more fun when you have a little one to share it with.  And I am loving this age because she is HILARIOUS.  I find myself laughing out loud 95% of the day, and there's nothing quite as awesome as a life full of laughter and smiles. 

I'm obsessed with her pigtails.  Her hair is finally long enough for the perfect little tails.  I'm forever kissing them.

 
Saturday started off super cloudy, but that didn't stop us from wrapping up in a towel and cuddling.  Our favorite thing to do of all time.  Add some skittles to the mix and it's a little bit of Heaven on Earth.
 

 
Oh but the sun soon came out...
 
 and Miss Priss found her way right into the water and floated as she shivered.
 
I was finally able to get my fish out of the water and put her down for a nap...during which I made some pretty little Memorial Day treats.
