Celebrating Memorial Day With Tacos

As promised, here are a few pictures of our {errr, Olivia's} Memorial Day.  We didn't really do much of anything, but it was nice to stay put after a weekend of entertaining and hanging out with David's dad.  Olivia LOVED having her Poppa around for the weekend and even started crying at one point when he and David left to go run a couple of errands.  She is still asking about him and thinks he is just back in his "office" at our house.  {Not exactly sure which room she is referring to!}

David spent a good majority of the day organizing some files on his computer as well as organizing things in the garage.  You think my nesting is rubbing off on him?  One of these days it's going to move in the direction of assembling furniture and painting Olivia's new dresser.  But, I'm going to need another grandfather here for that...any takers???

We did end up grilling out {hotdogs} for lunch and having a little picnic in the backyard.



She wore this same dress and barrette last Memorial Day.  Check her out here.
What a difference a year makes!  However, I'm pretty sure that same color polish is on my toes.
And, mmmm, how yummy does that zucchini bread look?!

For dinner, I used our ground beef and made our favorite taco night fixin's.  I swear that is Olivia's favorite dinner that I make!  She ended up eating THREE "burritos."  Of course, they were the small tortilla shells and about half of the insides made their way into the high chair, but when she eats the same meal that we do {at the same time}, I'm one happy camper.


She is clearly enjoying herself as well!

Alright, we are heading out for a walk to the playground.  I need to kick up the exercise a notch over here seeing as how I may be pushing out another baby in a few months sans epidural again.  OY.  Or should I say OW.

Happy Tuesday from the Central Coast!

Cute pics sis. Guess I will have fly out for a stint so that Poppy-do List doesn't get too long. Is there a chance I can get some of those burritos?

I wished I could have made it on Memorial Day weekend to see you. My time was completely taken up with my ill father. Hope to see you soon. On another note, I look forward to the day I can cook Olivia some of my burritos and tacos! She is such a good eater! LOL!
