Busy Memorial Weekend

It was a holiday today as the country commemorates Memorial Day. We had some friends over for a barbecue/get-together. We originally planned for the kids to go swimming, thinking that it would be warm enough. Uh...it was a high of 65 degrees today! Definitely not a day for swimming. But guess what? The kids braved the cold and spent some time in the pool. The daddies went with the kids by the pool while the mommies stayed inside where it was nice and warm. Hehehe... It was all in all a good day spent with good friends and filled with good food! I was having too much fun that I forgot to take pics! LOL!

We had a busy weekend too. Friends of ours from New York and their 2 kids were our houseguests for the weekend. Would you believe that this family of four with kids aged 3 years old and 4 months old had just one luggage for them all?! They were here in California for more than a week and we were their last stop. The mom must've been a very good packer and their travel supplies kept to the barest minimum. I don't think I would've been able to do that. I almost always overpack since I always worry that we'll run out of something during the trip. LOL!

Anyway, last Friday, DS performed at their school talent show too. He and 5 of his friends sang "Take me out to the Ballgame." It was so cute. We were so proud of them!!!

In the afternoon, we took our friends to the Getty Museum despite the rainy weather. Fortunately, the rain stopped later in the afternoon and we were able to explore the gardens. The kids really enjoyed playing with each other. The kids also enjoyed playing at the Family Room, exploring art and stuff.

Saturday and Sunday were spent at home with our friends. We took them to the nearby park, rode bikes and played in the playground. Good old-fashioned childhood fun. Our friends left on Sunday and my kids were already asking when M would be back. A sure sign that they enjoyed her company!

How about you, how was your weekend?

That IS a busy weekend you guys had! Busy but fun and surrounded by loved ones...what better way to spend the day? :o)

I had 3 photo sessions this weekend and they were really fun. Other than that though, it was a relaxed weekend spent with family. Just chillin out together. Good times.
