Memorial Day Weekend

Saturday, May 26, was the Pepper Planting Party. The first step to growing hot banana peppers; end of July and through August the peppers will be ready to pick and pack. There are so many peppers that the Kukura's (the family with the garden) have parties so all their friends and family help them plant, pick, and pack the peppers. We usually plant 200+ pepper plants. It's tough work, but well worth it in the end -the peppers are DELISH! They're sweet, with a kick afterwards. perfect!

Sunday, May 27, was Nolan's 1st birthday party. Family friends of ours little baby. He's such a cutie, and so is his cousin, Thomas. Tommy will turn one in about 4 months. It was nice to see the family again, they're really great people. Malone was nice enough to pick me up and take me, since my parents went earlier. But all the smiling/talking/laughing really took a toll on my jaw.. thank God for medicine. Everyone was so sweet though, asking how I am doing.. literally, everyone asked. I'm so blessed to have so many people who care.

Monday, May 28, Memorial Day! First, I'd like to thank all of our service men and women for making this beautiful day possible, God Bless.

Now, every Memorial Day family friends of ours, the Lebers, have a pool party. This year wasn't any different. All day lying pool side with great friends, family, food, and a Mike's Hard or two. perfection. A little, okay A LOT, of sun with an in-ground pool, accompanied with a water slide, super nice. Here's some photos::

see what I mean?! And what a beautiful day we had, upwards of 90 degrees, and with the water at a warm 85 degrees it was a perfect refresher in the heat. Also, this completes #30 of my 101 list: spend an entire day outside - check! And again, props to our Troops for making it possible to relax poolside all day.

A great weekend all around :)

life is good
