The Cutest Memorial Day Yet

This year’s Memorial Day could easily be summed up as the cutest Memorial Day yet. I mean, last year was pretty cute, but this year Adeline was just FUN! We all wore our patriotic apparel, and spent all day as a family before capping off the evening at our friend’s house for a cookout.

We spent the first part of the morning out at the outlet mall, shopping for some summer clothes for Adeline. I documented my finds on my Insta story, but I came out with $90 worth of clothes for only $29! I also scooped up a pastel pink pair of jelly sandals for A, and Adam bought some new shirts as well. Poor girl was so tired and fell asleep on Adam towards the end of our shopping trip, and it was simply adorable.

By the time we got home, she was pretty much passed out, then continued to take an almost 3 hour nap. While she napped, we made iced sugar cookies, and got ready for our cookout. I’ll be sharing the cookies on the blog soon, but trust me when I say they were DELICIOUS.

Here’s a short peak into our evening. My highlight of the evening was watching Adeline play with sidewalk chalk for the first time! Melt. My. Heart. I seriously cannot wait to have a driveway AND a sidewalk where Adeline can play with chalk all the time.

Hooray for it already being Tuesday!

How did you spend your Memorial Day? If you were celebrating or remembering a serviceman or woman, how did you honor them?
