Memorial Day

Today was a perfect Memorial Day! We started off the morning by going golfing with Brand and Tiff, and actually it was just Brand and Dave golfing besides the few times Tiff and I would hit one of their balls. The golf course was packed because of the holiday which made it a little hard to play because it's so small! There was a lot of waiting and some one's ball came within a foot of hitting Tiff in the head! Sam's favorite part was driving crazy and fast in the golf cart. :)

Then later on this afternoon we went with them and their two girls, Cassy and Helen, and two of the Shultz girls, Naomi and Maggie, to a camp ground near by and BBQed hot dogs, brats, corn, squash, zucchini, and pineapple. Yum! Sam's least favorite part of it (and mine, due to his non-stop screaming) was when I had to hold him and plug his ears from the shooting. I'll explain...we found a full, unopened beer bottle, and Dave starting teasing about how we should throw it up in the air and try to shoot it (both Brand and Dave had their guns on them). It turned into a bet - Dave saying Brand couldn't do it, and Brand saying he knew he could. Anyway, we hiked a ways out to make sure we were away from people (this is why in the first picture we're walking and Tiff has a bottle of beer in her hand). When we got there everyone put in ear plugs (thanks to being with two Safety Pros), except Sam of course. So I had to physically plug his ears with each shot, and Sam HATED it. He was so upset with me. But once we hiked back to "camp" and ate, he was as happy as a camper (ha ha).

Sam is giving Brand a high-five, but you can't really tell...

Anyway, that's the main highlights of our day. It was so nice to have Dave home and hang out as a family!

I am sure you have heard this before, but Sam looks SO much like Dave. It's crazy! What a cute family you have!
