Daddy came home this weekend! 

As most of you know, my husband has been gone for 2 1/2 months for training. Luckily for us, they let him take leave (not usually allowed in Tech school) and he came home for 2 1/2 days (Sat, Sun, and part of Mon) for Memorial Day weekend. Now, he's off again for 3 more months :*(

First off, I want take a second to remember what this holiday is all about. Remember our fallen military heroes and the freedom they died for. I'm grateful for the military members who sacrifice being away from their families for other families. The moment it took y'all to read this, has been a moment of remembrance for all the friends we have that my husband serves with (past and present), and all the people who have served our great military. We honor you. God bless!

We had such a great weekend together. We cherished every moment together!

We went to the zoo (one of our favorite places) and saw all the animals we love!

We petted goats!

We got to see the baby gorilla!! So cute!

We watched Polar Bears!

We spent a lot of time outside. Ariana got a new bubble mower to play with in the backyard!

She loves her bubble mower and Daddy does too. (He totally picked the girl one for her even though the gender neutral one was on sale haha! He spoils her)

Ariana and Daddy sat on the step with Ely and had a chat.

Rich got to open his birthday presents, and we ate some of the yummiest cupcakes that I've ever made!  
(I'll share pics and the recipe later. Trust me, you won't want to miss this!! Hint: chocolate and peanut butter heaven!)

Mommy woke up on Sunday to Daddy and Ariana making pancakes. A Sunday ritual in our house, but this was the first time Ariana helped!!

Rich and I had chocolate covered strawberries (LOVE, LOVE!) and Cupcake wine (yes, CUPCAKE wine!)

We played in her new big pool!

She gave wet kisses on the cheek!

Blew bubbles with Daddy!

said "oww" about his stubble! LOL

But, gave him hugs anyways!!

We picnicked outside! And laid around on a blanket.

I got lots of kisses!

We had the best weekend EVER!!

Hope y'all had a good weekend too :) I'm still on cloud 9!!
