Memorial Weekend 2011

It was great to spend this holiday weekend with my family.  Here is how our weekend went:

David and I snuggled with Ems in the morning then we slowly worked on picking up and organizing the house.  We still have a long way to go...didn't even make a dent...but every little bit helps, right?  Please say yes!

Dad took us all out for dinner at Golden Corral...yummy!  After dinner, Dad, David and Jason took Emily to a Rattlers Game (Arena Football League).  I won two suite tickets to the game from my work.  None of the boys had ever been to an arena football game before, so I thought it would be great for them to kick back and relax for the night.  They decided they wanted Emily to go at the last moment.  It does look like they had a great time.  As for me, I was able to spend a long time catching up with my BFF who lives in Japan.  We talked for over an hour, it is always a highlight of the day when I talk to her!  3 weeks until she is home!
 My friend Carol, won two tickets also.  Here she is enjoying the game with her hubby.
Proud Grandpa!
 Looks like she had lots of snuggle time with her Daddy and Gramps!

David and I didn't really do anything.  I had a headache most of the day, so we just laid low at home all day.  It was so great to be able to do this AND still have an extra weekend day for more family time.

We went over to my Dad's house for a BBQ.  We can NOT have a family get together without there being way too much food.  So as not to disappoint, we were all stuffed by the time we were done eating.  But food and family was the plan for the day!
 My sweetie girl.  I just love her!! 
More Grandpa time!!
How cute are they all passed out together?  I just love this picture!

That was my weekend in a nutshell.  Nothing overly exciting, but a great time with my family!
