We were lucky that our house closing happened to align with Memorial Day weekend. It afforded us an extra day off work to unpack and settle. We didn’t have Memorial Day plans since we intended to be working on the house, but by Monday afternoon we had E-N-O-U-G-H already. After two days of moving, our bodies ached while bruises lined our legs and biceps. It was clearly time for a break so I invited us to my Aunt Linda’s BBQ. Although taking four toddlers anywhere is a lot of work, getting out for a few hours proved refreshing.
I captured Rylin’s rendition of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.
We may not have been on the initial guest list, but I think the quads did a fine job of entertaining the great grandparents. They have a way of brightening the day of others with their antics. How did you celebrate Memorial Day?
P.S. Stay tuned for the low down on the BIG move and the gazillion projects we’d like to tackle.

Life is always a parade with the kiddos. Dad
Isn’t it though?
That video is the cuuuutest!! Girl I feel your pain on moving with quads. Hope you’ve gotten a little rest.
I agree 🙂 last night I enjoyed tv time and didn’t work!
Your posts always brighten my day. Today they brightened my Mom’s. She is FayE Leach and used to work with your Mom. She has been really sick the last few months and is now in rehab. When I called her tonight she was feeling down. So I read her your post, it made her feel better. Thank you for sharing your Angels with us.
Awww, knowing that warmed my heart and motivates me to keep writing. I remember FayE from my summers helping at fumc. Tell her she is in our prayers.
We had a ball. So glad you came!
