Memorial Day Weekend

Saturday, June 01, 2013

The week leading up to Memorial Day, Dustin's brothers family came in to visit for the week. They live in South Dakota and we only see them every couple of years.

Abigail and Julia wanted to be by Mason all week!
They loved having a baby around.

The Oaks' grandchildren with Granny and Grandpa

I love my weekend mornings with these three. Chocolate milk and Barney are what keeps our marriage going. haha!

I "accidentally" put the big girl in the baby car seat!
She loves for us to tell her things we did for her when she was a baby, she has no clue that she still is my baby though!

Why does he have to grow so fast? I definitely think the second one grows faster.
Cousins: Julia, Mackenzie and Abigail
Family/Friends and all the babies.
L to R: Moses, Abigail, Julia, Little Danny, Dustin, Mason,
Mackenzie, Bobby John, Wesley, Jared and Lyla
For some reason this picture will not upload rotated but anyways...
Lyla and Mason.
 Lyla is 5 months and Mason is almost 3 months. We had him weighed this week (14 lb) and he weighs 2 pounds more that Lyla. Yikes he is a big boy!
I had to steal a few of these pictures from Amanda's Facebook because I am horrible at taking pictures when there are a lot of people around. Here is Abigail, Moses and Julia. I am sure the next time we see them they will be doubled in size!
Saturday Night we had our 5 Year Life Group Party aka a going away party for our teachers Barb and Glen. Glen got a job in New Jersey and they will be moving up there in June. We are going to miss them so much and can't wait until they come home to visit.
We started going to Life Group in April of 2009 and it has honestly laid our entire foundation as a couple. I don't know where we would be without them and they have helped us to understand each other far better than we could have ever figured out on our own. Marriage is tough, but there isn't anyone else I would want to go through the hard times with.

Do these two look alike or what?
There was child care offered on Saturday night and we dropped the kids off at the Nursery before heading over to the ROC. I turned right back around and picked Mason back up. I am sure he would have been fine, but there were a ton of kids and 4 teen girls so I hated to do that.
Once again, I stole some of these pics off Facebook. Glen on the far left and Barb on the right.

Mason passed out on Dustin at the party.
We played the newlywed game, which we always do, and it never disappoints. I have never laughed so hard. The questions and answers leave us all gasping and dying laughing!
Sunday, we went to church before heading back to Mimi Shannon's house to swim.
Shannon and Jenn smoked Hog and Shannon kept us stocked up with drinks by the pool.
 It was a great time!

Mackenzie and Taelynn

Jess and Mason. Jessica just got a new gig as Sr High Cheer Coach for Booneville. I am so excited for her and I know she will do great! However, this better not mean that she is going to be putting off making us a beautiful baby! :)

This crazy guy has decided to hold his head up even in his car seat. It is killing me to see him doing this! That can't be comfortable.

And, he has also decides he needs a paci. But only in the car. 
On Monday, we went back over the Mimi Shannon's house for more pool time. I didn't snap any pictures but that just means we were having a great time! I do however have one picture for our Memorial Day: 

I love this!
A friend of our posted this and I was dying. Her husband and Dustin both do contracting so this is what they look like while they are on the job.
And just for fun, here are two pictures from Memorial Day 2012. One month before the wedding. This is definitely motivation to lose that last 4 pounds I still have from pregnancy.
