Reflections of a Mom's Life

Saturday with the Schrodt's

This past winter, Katy and I started talking about a weekend that would work for a visit.  It's crazy how busy life can get and it seems if you aren't intentional about setting a date months, and months will go by before you see each other again!  Even though we saw each other back in November, the kids had not seen each other since last July.  I couldn't believe it! 

So we decided Memorial Day Weekend would work for the both of us and we decided to put it on the calendar.  We couldn't leave until after Anthony got off of work on Friday so it made for a late arrival but we were excited to get there.  Saturday morning the kids played, we had breakfast, and then we packed a lunch for the pool!  Our pool here was not open so the kids could not wait to get their toes in the water!

Katy fixed a yummy Chicken Salad!  We all swam and enjoyed catching up.  There was some drama about one of Jackson's toes that about sent me into a fit but we survived! :)  Even Jackson! :)

Later that afternoon we cooked burgers and hotdogs.  After the kids were finally in bed, we stayed up into the wee hours of the morning talking.  It was great.  Loved catching up and loved talking about our personalities and the personalities of our kids.  So fun to hash those things out with people you love and who love you back...who love your kids too and never make you feel like you have to have it all together... 'cause Lord knows we do NOT have it all together. :)  It was a great start to the weekend!
