Memorial Day Weekend

We had such a great Memorial Day Weekend this year. Reed's parents were finally able to come out and see us! We haven't seen them since we moved to California, which was probably the longest we've gone since seeing them in a long time (maybe even as long as we've been married thanks to volleyball!). So we were all pretty anxious and excited to see them. They flew in late Friday night, so the kids had to wait until Saturday morning to see them. Evan was so excited, Audrey was a little shy until she had some time to warm up to them. 
One of the highlights of the weekend was going to the March Air Force Museum. Evan loves airplane museums. We had lots of fun seeing all of the planes and learning how fast they could fly. 

Then we happened to walk by this plane at just the right time.
There was an old guy working on the grounds with a few college student volunteers. They were taking a break and checking out the inside of the plane. Since we were the only ones around, he let us in for a peek! It was pretty cool and he had some good stories to share about when he flew this plane in the Vietnam War.
 Another highlight of Saturday was when Evan was eating his ice cream cone and the ice cream fell off the cone! His poor little face! It was pretty funny. Luckily the guy at Baskin Robbins was nice and gave him a new cone.
Grandma and Grandpa were able to go with us to church on Sunday. Audrey made sure to give Grandma a tour of the entire building inside and out while Mom and Dad were teaching their classes! Pretty soon after we got home from church, Reed's brother, Jay, and his family arrived at our house! We had a pretty full house, but it was so fun! They hadn't met Audrey before this, so it was fun to check that off the list. Our evening was full of Just Dance and playing fun games outside. 
We were sad when everyone had to leave Monday. We loved having everyone here-you're all welcome here anytime!
