Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Memorial Day to all. We had a great weekend and we hope everyone did too. Thank you to all our Veterans and Active Military. Without their dedication and sacrifice, we wouldn't have the freedom we enjoy.
We started the weekend off great with a trip to the park. Jenna was very excited that they turned on the water. She had a great time running through the sprinklers. Saturday Jenna and I took the train into the city to see our friends Sue and Maureen. Lucky for us, Jenna slept the entire time so we were able to catch up. Once Jenna did awake, I took her to Union Square and we played at the park. The weather was great. Sunday we had a BBQ at our house - we had a nice crowd - Jenna had a great time seeing everyone. We celebrated Memorial Day by watching the Bayridge parade. It is the oldest, consecutive parade in the US.

My diva.

Park Weather

With the weather getting warmer, we have been heading out to the park more. Jenna loves the park especially now that she is on the big kid swings. We cannot believe that she is turning 3 next month. Our little baby is growing up. The pictures below are from the past couple weeks at the local parks.

Kaylin's Communion

Saturday we had Kaylin, Mike's goddaughter's communion. We had a great time at the party. Grandma Gladys, Uncle Darren, Titi Iliana and Amanda were all there. Jenna had loads of fun with Amanda. She even got to extend that fun by spending the night at Grandma's with Amanda.

Coney Island

We had some great weather this weekend. So glad that the rain from Friday moved on out. Saturday we had dinner with Jennifer, Mark & Madison since Jennifer and Madison were leaving for Chicago Sunday for 2 weeks. I can tell you that Jenna misses Madison already. Sunday we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and head over to Coney Island. It is sad since this is the last year that this part of Coney Island will be open. Jenna had a great time riding the rides. She is still talking about the whale. She even had her first Coney Island Nathan's hot dog. She loved it!

See how excited she is.
