Meet the Sullivans: Memorial Day Weekend!

May 31, 2016

Memorial Day Weekend!

The Memorial Day weekend is behind us which means summer is right around the corner! Keith had four days off and it was so nice! We spent a lot of time hanging out at home, enjoying the company of family, and doing all the things we usually do on the weekend but at a slower pace.

I just have to warn you, there are so many photos in the post, but we had such a great weekend, so I took a lot of pictures. I hope you don't mind!

The weekend started Friday morning, since Keith had a four day weekend.  I dropped Owen off at school and Keith and I went for breakfast with just Luke. Hindsight is 20/20 because we used to think (when Owen was a baby) that it was so stressful bringing a baby to a restaurant, but now it's like a date only having one kid with us. We picked Owen up from school and then in the afternoon Keith took him our by the bay to play for a while. They came back with all sorts of treasures, included shells, dead crabs (yuck!) and more shells. Owen was thrilled and spent most of the evening in the backyard admiring all of his treasures.

On Saturday we took it easy and took turns going to the store, the gym, etc, and then went to Keith's sister's house for a barbecue and to watch the Warrior game. The game didn't look too good for the Dubs in the beginning, but they pulled through with a win! Our night was made!

We had a lazy Sunday morning, until about 8:30 when it was time to hustle to get us all ready and out the door for church. Can I get an amen for the LBD? I've had this dress since I had Owen (pssst it's actually maternity!) and I just can't get rid of it because it is so easy to nurse in, and I can wear it in the winter and summer. 

After church we stopped by the sales office to take quick peek at some of the finishes so I can get a better idea for how it will all look. We won't even be moving for quite a while since ours will be one of the last to be built, but thinking about it keeps me up at night, so it was good to get a closer look!

In the afternoon, after a two hour nap (!!!), I mixed up our favorite cocktails, the Moscow Mule, while Keith barbecued.

Dinner was a mashup of all sorts of our favorites. We've been bbqing chicken drumsticks lately since they're super easy and Owen loves them. I bought a watermelon at Costco and we've been having it all weekend, and I still have more in the fridge!

Monday morning we got going super early to beat the traffic out to Half Moon Bay, and go to the beach. The traffic is always so bad that we gave ourselves and hour to make a 30 minutes drive and I'm so glad we did because at 9:30am there was still traffic.

Lukey was asleep when we arrived at the beach and schlepped alllll of our stuff down to the sand. When he woke up he was in the best mood! This was his first trip to the beach!

Owen was in pure little boy heaven with all of the sand and the little sand crabs. He and Keith caught a lot of little ones and some pretty big ones too! He was busy digging in the sand the entire time we were there, and it wasn't until we were close to leaving that he stopped to have some lunch.

We used our Quick Shelter I bought at Costco and it was so awesome. We had shade and were shielded from the wind. I wish I'd had one of these when Owen was littler. It was so easy to put up and down.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend with the people you love!
