Over Memorial Day weekend, I enjoyed a 4 day weekend since I took Friday off as well. Saturday night we went out with Mark and Lane and Whitney and Suzanne! A good time was had by all!
On Sunday, Mike and I drove out to Lost Valley along the Buffalo River for a hike. It was about a 3 mile hike with a cave at the end. There were some really pretty stops and waterfalls along the way. By the time we got to the cave it was really crowded so we decided just to turn around and head back to the car. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.
On the drive home, we ran into some really strong thunderstorms and were very grateful that we were not still on the trail when the bottom dropped out. In honor of the holiday, we decided to grill steaks. Mike is a great cook and the steaks were fantastic! On Monday, besides being the actual holiday, it was also Lindsey’s 7th 21st birthday! We went to Lindsey and Jason’s house for a cookout. There were LOTS of babies! Since as previously noted, over the past year 87% of my friends have had kids! Really – that’s not an exaggeration, I did the math. Of course Stella was the center of attention – as it should be. Lindsey’s mom made some Sprinkles Red Velvet Cupcakes AND she fed Stella a whole one.
It was hilarious and Stella LOVED the cream cheese icing – her first birthday is the end of June and I can’t wait to see what she does with her cake!
