Memorial Day Weekend

Yesterday we went to church and then spent the afternoon with some sweet friends from college and their families. Ok. I’m going to be really honest. I was super excited about this. 🙂 Then the weather report said it was supposed to rain. This might sound bad, but the thought of 8 children (7 boys) ages 8, 7, 7, 7, 5, 5, 4, and almost 3 years old cooped up in my house while it rained outside made me a little nervous. It rained all morning.  We got drenched walking to our car after church. But at 12:30, it stopped. We were able to grill out, let the kids play outside, and catch up with one another. It was wonderful! The kids were amazing…seriously amazing! The last time all of us were together at one time was our wedding (which will be 12 years this July!) I’ve seen them separately, just not together. Can’t wait to get together again!IMG_7994

We had planned to go to the beach with the Broadwells today like we usually do on Memorial Day weekend, but it was calling for rain in Charleston, so we unfortunately had to cancel. So, last night around 7:00 we met up with my parents so the kids could go spend the night. Yay for granny and papa wanting the kids to spend the night! They stayed up entirely too late having movie night(but I guess that’s what you’re supposed to do with grandparents. I remember doing the same thing with mine!) 🙂 Today they went to the zoo, Chick-fil-a, Menchies, Books-a-million, then picked up Pa and met us and more family at the Koger Center for a great patriotic concert that Aunt Melanie played in. We even got to see Aunt Spencer and her residents from work. 🙂 FullSizeRender_1IMG_8006After the concert, we ate dinner at Hickory Tavern in the Vista, came home and played outside, got baths, and those sleepy heads are in bed! FullSizeRender_2FullSizeRender_3IMG_8007Whew! I’m so thankful for such a great weekend!FullSizeRender
