Happy Memorial Day!

We celebrated Memorial Day with a big lunch at my parents' house.  My mom had a big spread of  food - my favorite were the stuffed mushrooms!  We started out just hanging out together and snacking on appetizers.  Then, we ate our big delicious lunch.  Afterward, we headed outside for several hours and played lots of rounds of cornhole - or, as Katie Anne calls it, cornfield.  Then, it was back inside to cool off and enjoy dessert - I'd brought a cheesecake pie and rice krispie "crumbles" (I'd tried to make a healthy version, but they didn't really stick together).  Here are some pictures of the fun!
Katie Anne loves...

LOVES her some cocktail shrimp!  She ate TONS of them!
These two daredevils were seeing how close they could get to the edge of the deck without falling...
Katie Anne feels so big opening and closing the deck door by herself now that Gigi and Granddad installed a little low handle for her to use!
Watching Gigi grill the veggies and brats.
After lunch, it was cornhole time!

We had a very happy Memorial Day!
We hope you did, too!

Good Lord. I could open up a bakery with all those rolls (referring to the pic of me throwing a bean bag). Fun day!

I'm glad you had a Happy Memorial Day Katie! Those pictures are great! I love that your parents put a handle lower on the door for KA and other grandchildren. Great idea!
