Memorial Day

We rarely get to spend a day together as a family. Boy were we lucky that we got to start it at 6:15am!!! Aaron actually had the day off, so we planned out some things to do and started our day! We were outside playing by was SO nice outside today!

Then, around 10:30ish we headed out to a pond Aaron likes to fish at. Aaron has been wanting to take Eli fishing for awhile now, so today was the day!

This was Aaron trying to explain to Eli about how you have to wait for the fish to bite the worm....Yea right!!!!
This is what Eli ended up doing most of the time....playing with the worms! He lasted about 5 minutes and then said, "Ready to go home, mommy!"

Then....Aaron caught at fish!
Eli wasn't so sure about the fish and wouldn't let it get too close to him!

After fishing, we went to get some lunch and went to the park to play! Eli is really into parks! It took everything we had to get him to eat something before he could go play!

After Eli's nap...we went outside to play in his new slide!

You'll notice it has changed locations! It was on the concrete and is now in the grass. Aaron didn't really want it in the grass b/c it would kill the grass. Well...when Eli went down the slide, he slipped and bonked his head on the concrete. We then decided it wasn't a safe idea and moved it over to the grass! I felt much better about this!

We ended our evening at our neighbors house with a BBQ! As you can see, Eli got to enjoy a smore!

It was a great, busy, fun day! I love it when we actually get to spend family time together! With that said, I'm thinking of going to bed early tonight! I'm exhausted!

I've worried about the pool being on concrete too. It is too bad that they don't put some kind of cushion on the bottom. I'm sorry Eli bonked his head.
