Our Memorial Day Weekend

Liam got ridiculously good at crawling and fast! He is chasing the cats ever where! IMG_1255

He is pulling up on everything and has pushed up to standing a few times. He has been loving to crawl all over everyone like a jungle gym.


Grandma, Pop, and Uncle Matt came to visit and Liam got a trip around the living room on Pop….he loved it! We celebrated my Dad’s birthday while they were visiting and i made a great lemon raspberry layer cake with homemade raspberry curd that was phenomenal.


On Saturday we went to the zoo!!


Meerkat, it is real, it was posing for us!


Liam posing by the fake snake!


Time for a drink.


It was a family reunion for Sophie.


Everyone looking at the giraffes.


Liam passed out for a bit, i don’t blame the poor boy it was 90 degrees. IMG_1302

At the butterfly gardens.


This is the toy Liam picked out at the gift shop that Grandma and Pop bought for him. This is Willie the penguin; thanks Grandma and Pop.


On Sunday we went downtown, walked around, and did some shopping.

They were having a 40% off your entire purchase promo at Ann Taylor loft and i was lucky enough to snag a cute pair of shorts and two tops. The promotion is still going on today and you can shop on-line for it as well!

My parents bought me a new sewing machine this weekend, extremely lucky girl i know! My mom and I had quite an adventure trying to find a machine and after shopping at almost ten different store we decided on getting a Singer Esteem II machine.


On Sunday i finished my first pair of Jon Jon’s for Liam. They turned out so cute! I have another pair with a patchwork plaid fabric that i am just dying to make. I will post pictures of the outfits soon!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day today!

Luke has that life-size giraffe in his "jungle" room - one of my aunts got it for him. :)
