Our weekend

Blowing bubbles.

Finding caterpillars... Will calls them 'cat-a-pil-ahs.'
Indy 500 watch out!

Batman 'motorcycle.'

Watcha lookin' at Mom?

Our yummy Berry pie, flag and Will loving on our dog Molly.

We stayed home for Memorial Day weekend and it was pretty laid back. Will has a new Batman trike...he calls it the 'Batman motorcycle.' When I was young there was a toy called a 'big wheel' so that's what I think it is, a Batman big wheel. He rides this thing constantly and would sleep with it in his room if we let him, he actually tried to bring it in the house! Grandma and Grandpa came over Sunday and played and spent time with both kids. Grace demonstrated some of her new reading skills and how she's riding a 2 wheeler bike with ease. We had a yummy bbq too...the menu consisted of bbq'd ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, potato salad, baked beans and deviled eggs. And the berry pie.(That was Grace's favorite) Monday, the kids played outside and we went on a long walk together. Dan got to play golf. Looks like summer is finally here....yay!!!!

Seeing Will on that batman big wheel brings back many fond memories of my childhood. I had an orange and yellow one and spent many summer days riding it!!

Hope you have a great week!!

Your weekend sounds wonderful to me! Nice and relaxing. I agree with you about thinking the Batman motorcycle looks like a Big Wheel. Didn't we ride Big Wheels until we were around 7?

Beautiful pictures!

Have a great week.

Your weekend sounds perfect!
Will's love for his "batman-mobile"
brings to mind many stories of my husband and his big wheel-my husband says it was one of his favorite toys growing up- my mother-in-law- said that he rode the wheels flat!
Have a great week
