Dear Memorial Day weekend,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your three day off arrival was much needed. Even though the weekend weather started off slightly chilly for the end of May in Virginia, you ended with sun, blue skies and many hours spent on our screened in porch.

My little family of three was able to head out of town for a night to Wintergreen, which to my surprise was only about an hour and half away. I wanted to make sure to get in an overnight trip somewhere new before the baby arrives and our tripod dynamic is ruffled. We had a great time and Peyton loved our room, even though he didn’t sleep well, and ‘roaring’ at all the bear paraphernalia around the resort. Hubs and I had a great time too exploring the area and I would love to go back there and spend more time.

The final day was spent with our fantastic friends from California who drove down from Northern Virginia for the day with their precious, precious 14-month-old. Finley and Peyton had so much fun together and it was great catching up with old friends who we don’t see as often as we’d like. But that’s what 2,000 miles will do and living on opposites sides of the country.



All in all it was a wonderful long weekend and I feel like we’ve tried to give Peyton as much only child time outside the house as possible before his world is rocked upside down in a handful of weeks.

And it wouldn’t be the norm if I didn’t throw in a mention of my hometown of Waterloo, NY being the birthplace of Memorial Day. Shout out to the ‘loo!
