Saturday Owen had his second to last game. His Papa came to see him play. Then after that we spent the rest of the day hanging out. We cooked burgers on the grill and drank Brians homemade limeade. Sooooo tasty.
That evening I headed out for a Black Rock ladies night out. All the ladies in Black Rock get together occasionally for a girls night out. It was so great to get out for the evening. The best part is its local so there is no hour drive home from Bristol for me.
Sunday Owen and I went up to Niantic for the day.
He braved the water...it was freezing!!!! He didnt care. All he wanted to do was swim. My boy is definitely a beach bum. He takes after his mom. He would stay all day if he could.
On Monday we went to the parade in Fairfield. We got there a little early (like an hour). We were sitting at the end of the pararde so it was a lonnnngggggg wait. We managed to keep Owen entertained for the most part. He was enjoying the fact that he could run around in the street with no worries about getting hit by a car.
He was asking us all weekend to go to the parade. He basically said that he wants to go to the parade so he can get a "Memorial Day Gun". He must have heard that from someone at school. So needless to say, he got a 10.00 plastic gun that is really worth 2.00. In the end it was worth it because my boy had a great time.
We got to see tons of great military vehicles and cars.
Of course there were the military men which we spent the day honoring. I always get so choked up when they walk by and everyone shows their appreciation! I have such admiration for those men and women who fight for us and our freedom.
We followed the parade up with a great afernoon at the beach. We met a bunch of people from the neighborhood there. It was so great to sit back, relax and watch my boy have tons of fun.
After the beach we came home for some showers and headded back over to another beach for dinner. It was a great end to a fantastic weekend. I couldnt ask for a better weekend.
And to top it all off I didnt have to go to work today. I am done with the office work for good!!!
