I love all these firsts with my baby boo — there is absolutely nothing better than experiencing something new with him. This past weekend Meemaw and Pappy were in town to spend Memorial Day with us — They flew in Friday, and baby boo got to skip out on daycare that day (well most of it) and hang with his grandparents all day. After that we went to Cocina Superior, where the child promptly showed off his expert flirting skills with the table of girls behind us. That kid and his eyelashes…
On Saturday, B and I started the morning with the Color Run! I absolutely loved this race – it is a very non-pressure 3 mile race that isn’t even timed. It was so much fun! After that, Meemaw and I ran around town, shopping and having lunch. Then Meemaw and Pappy watched the boo so B and I could have another date night! We didn’t know what to do with ourselves! Two weekends with date nights! I guess that will have to hold us over for another month! We went to J Clyde first for a beer, and then onto Five Points Public Oyster House, where we had some delicious oysters, sushi and cheese curds! Then for nostalgia sake, we went to Blue Monkey for a vodka drink, and ended the night at Trimtab Brewery. And because all good nights end with food, we stopped at Purple Onion for some wings and ranch fries — diet be damned.
Sunday was another day of running around — somehow I got glass stuck in my foot while we were at Kohls, and then our car wouldn’t start. All of this after I couldn’t figure out how to work the stroller — 10 months in, and I still rely mainly on B to work all the “hard” baby stuff. We figured it out though, and by we, I mean Pappy. Sunday night we grilled out some burgers and turned in pretty early.
Memorial Day turned out to be so beautiful down here in Alabama – it was overcast with a slight breeze, so it wasn’t unbearable to sit outside. We blew up the pool, busted out the fingerpaints and water gun, grilled some hot dogs and ribs, and had just a great all around day.

I hope everyone had a great long weekend!
