The kids had both Friday and Monday off for the Memorial Day weekend (and then had to go back to school for 2 1/2 days...silliness) and we made the most of our summer preview.
Friday morning we headed to Baton Rouge for a quick trip to see our friends the Funks and meet their newest family member Isaac. Preston and Ryan picked up right where they left off the last time they got to play together, Addie loved having Charlotte's attention all to herself and Ella liked hanging with the adults and the cute baby :-). It was fun to see them all, get in some baby snuggles and then we were back on the road home Saturday afternoon.
On Monday we had a relaxing morning and then headed to my parents for fun in the pool and a BBQ, along with celebrating Kiley's birthday which was the day before. When we were on our way there my mom texted that Grandad had a surprise for Ella. Ella instantly thought it was a trampoline but I told her that was crazy and not to get her hopes up. We pulled up though and sure enough there was a trampoline in the back yard :-). Apparently Ella worked her grand-daughter charm and power of persuasion on Grandad while Mike and I were in Italy.
