Annual Lindsey Memorial Weekend Bash

It's become a tradition to kick off our summer with a Lindsey family gathering at Jeremy's Aunt Tonya and Aunt Patsy's place. They open their beautiful home and pool to us and we split meals and clean-up duties. It's become a highlight of our year. It's a great time to catch up, there are always tons of laughs, and the food is amazing. 

it was a bit cool this year but that didn't stop us
from enjoying the pool

even pippin couldn't resist going for a swim

this girl knows how to relax

her brother is still a bit confused

auntie em and lily, however, have it down to a science

bow and arrows were a new addition to festivities this year

after some training from uncle kyle big buddy
used daddy for target practice

we also enjoyed aunt tonya's newest toy - a mini bike
*don't worry it only goes 10-miles-an-hour and we stayed in the back yard

we had a couple fires, one with s-mores

mini man was impressed

delicious food!

our beautiful hosts: aunt tonya & aunt patsy

baby wren was there and my kiddos were as enamored as ever

the sight of these three all sleeping in one bed about made my heart burst

and so did watching these two play pretend on the deck 

the theme this year was beach balls so aunt nonie whipped all the
kids up a t-shirt to take home

uncle kevin wasn't able to join us for christmas so he also sent the
 kids home with some gifts. i'm not sure who found the remote
control helicopters more exciting, the boys or their daddy

the whole crew

I think next year I'm going to try to convince everyone that we should extend the party to a week!

  1. Looks like a blast! I love the group picture. That's probably the biggest beach ball I've ever seen!

    I had a funny conversation with the 8 year old I babysit.
    "Angela, why do Moms take pictures of their kids sleeping!?"
    "Oh, I don't know. Maybe they like seeing peaceful faces that are taken care of. My mom did it too."
    "Well, I'm never going to do that to my kids!"

    Hahaha we'll see about that. :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - you make me smile :)
