Memorial Day Weekend

Yesterday was our 7th anniversary. We celebrated Saturday and used my gift card for Olive Garden I still had from my birthday (thank you Steve & Allison). Earlier that day I talked to my Grandpa Olsen and he reminded me that 7 is a lucky number. With our birthmother due in July, it does look like this will be a lucky year for us. In all reality, I know luck had nothing to do with it but that all things come from God. I am really blessed to have my two boys. Last night I found a card on my pillow from Barry. It was so thoughtful of him. I appreciate all he does to provide for our family and how he cares for us. Friday night he went to the urgent care center and found out the bumps on his legs are from a staph infection. Hopefully the antibiotics 4x a day will kick it and he starts feeling better.

Yesterday we visited the graves of Barry's great grandparents and one set of mine. We visit the graves of my mom, grandmother, and brother on Mother's Day. I just find it much more private then instead of Memorial Day where it gets so busy. Anyway, when I went nearly every headstone had bird poo on it. Made me so mad! So I cleaned off their gravestones and my cousins gravestone the best I could with a rag Barry had in his truck. Next time I'll have to remember to bring a spray bottle with some water. It wouldn't be that hard for the sexton to power wash the gravestones when every one of them has poo on them. Have some respect for the dead would ya! Sorry I regress.

Barry's parents stopped on their way home from visiting graves. I had to share this super cute picture of Grandma with Owen.

Today I cleaned the interior of my car. I think I'm going to ban eating and drinking in my car for now on (yeah right). Barry finally got to planting flowers in my Mother's Day pots since it has stopped freezing at night.

This afternoon we are putting up chair rail in the baby's room when Barry gets back from watering the nursery. I'll post pictures of the room next week when it's all decorated.
