Memorial Day Weekend

I decided that since I am just sitting on the couch with nothing to do I should blog about our weekend.

I absolutely LOVE 3 day weekends!!! Even though I am not working and weekends are pretty much the same as weekdays for me! I love that Eric gets to be home an extra day with me and we have more time to spend together. I couldn't ask for anything more!

We decided that we would go to Eric's parent's house for the weekend, it had been a few months since we had seen most of his family so it was long over due!

The drive over Friday was.......well.......long.......There were accidents and breakdowns going over Snoqualmie Pass starting early in the afternoon and it backed up traffic for like 20 miles. We kept laughing at the traffic reports because they would say things like, "it's backed up for 30 miles, I'm not even kidding you." It was never as bad as they said it was, but it was still bad. The 2 hour drive took us just a little over 4 hours! The upside is that it was a gorgeous day so we could roll down the windows and enjoy the fresh air.

Whenever we go visit Eric's family I always want to go to Miner's to get a big fat juicy burger. Because Eric loves me so much he always takes me!! Miner's never disappoints!! I rewarded Eric for taking me there for lunch by letting him take me to see Terminator Salvation. I actually enjoyed it and I know that Eric did.

Monday we had a BBQ with some of Eric's extended family. The weather was beautful and it was so nice to be outside enjoying it and each other's company. The weather was so nice that a kiddie pool was set up for the babies and they loved it! I didn't take too many pictures (hardly any at all) but here are just a few:

Our niece, Addison, enjoying the water!

A picture of our spread. Everything was so good....which meant I ate way too much!!

We had such a great weekend. It was so good to spend time with Eric's family!!
