Thoughts for Thursday: Holiday Weekend Recap

Did yesterday feel like a Monday to anyone else??  I swear I need at least one extra day to recover after a long holiday weekend or vacation!

Our long weekend started last Friday night when we met up with friends at their neighborhood beach.   It's times like these that I love living so close to the water.

If you look closely you can see my fearless babies in their green puddle jumpers just swimming out in the Severn River with all the big kids.  

Then Saturday morning we were up bright and early for Miller's Dino Dig 4th Birthday! I promise to share a more detailed post next week but just wanted to share a few pictures today.  It was such a fun time and Miller had so much fun being the center of attention!

On Sunday we spent the morning at my parents pool and then headed out to dinner at a local restaurant Lures to celebrate my brother in law's birthday.

On Monday we decided to play tourist in Washington, DC.  See Kyle and I thought since most of the people we know in the DC area were at the beach it would be empty, well joke was on us because it turns out the rest of America was vacationing in DC for the 4th of July holiday!  While the crowds were not the norm for us, we still had a blast taking the kids to the Museum of Natural History, taking them to pizza at Ella's Wood Fire Pizza, our favorite pre-kids pizza place in DC,  showing them the mall and surrouding monuments, and then introducing them around Kyle's office.

On the 4th of July, Kyle golfed early, so I took the kids to our little town parade with some friends.  They had a blast, despite how hot it was, and loved seeing the floats and cars go by.  After the morning at the parade we ended the day with a a BBQ at my parents house.

It was a busy weekend, but so much fun!! The kids really did enjoy every minute of it despite not really napping or sleeping much.   Thankfully they made up for it today by sleeping in until 7:30am!! Which if you know my kids is late!
