Happy Memorial Day!

We got together with our families Sunday. Dean's brother & his kids were in town so it worked out for everyone.  Including this guy.
First snake of the year. Oh joy. I was standing by the pool taking pics of Logan when I saw him slither up. He sat in this spot for awhile. I guess he was trying to decide what to do next. My brother ended up with the shovel which was a mistake of EPIC proportions. Apparently,he's scared of snakes. Yes, he got away. He does have an injured tail. The good news is he's not poisonous.
Logan loves the pool. In case you're wondering the snake was over to the left of the knock out rose in this pic before the big escape.

We had burgers, hot dogs & these little guys for lunch.
This was when they were first put in the pot.
The finished product. They were sooooo good!!!-
I think everyone enjoyed them.
The uninvited guest used the bamboo along the fence as his getaway.
I think Logan would've stayed in the pool all night.
Our niece Camille brought an alligator with her. It's a big noodle with a seat.
Our nephew Drew.
Logan with his daddy.
We celebrated Camille's 11th birthday.
I hooked her up with her fave - Under Armour.
I think Drew was over the birthday festivities by this point.

It was great to be able to relax after the stressful few days I'd had at work. Of course I ate too much. Dean & I were both off Monday. I got in a 4 mile run. I was excited that I was able to do it but it was tough! Tuesday I was back at Yoglates after a week off. It was tough too but I did it. This morning I ran 3 miles. I'm using the Hal Higdon 1/2 Marathon training app & I'm almost where I left off when I had tendinitis. Thanks goodness!



  1. OH MY. YUCK! I hate snakes!! But I love good food and pool parties. :) Great job on the run!!!

  2. So it sounds like you are used to these snakes? I don't like slimy things, even turtles give me the creeps!

    That pool looks like SO much fun!


  3. Oh yum, as always! Oh the snake, not so yum. My neighbor had to come over Friday and kill one for me. I actually chased the stupid thing.....I was afraid it was going to get Sophie! I am sooo glad he is dead and gone because I can just see her catching it and bringing it thru her doggy door.

  4. We have a lot of snakes in our yard and they really freak me out to say the least!!! Your pool is so beautiful....I'm glad everyone had such a great time :o)

  5. snakes are so scary and that one looks huge! I probably would have run screaming. also that pool looks super nice, it's making me want to go swimming!

  6. We used to see snakes all the time when we lived in Southern CA. Here in the PNW, they are few and far between but we do see them on hiking trails and no and then. Looks like a total feast with the family! Wow! Lots of yummy food and I love all the pool photos!


  7. LOVE your pool!!!!!! - and the food looks YUMMO!!!!!!

  8. Looks like y'all had a great Memorial Day despite the uninvited guest. I hate when creepy things just show up -- I always wonder where they were before I saw!
