Memorial Day: Cresap Style

When I was a kid, we had a ton of really great family friends who we took the opportunity to party with basically every holiday. And since we had a pool, we had a lot of super fun summer swim/bbq parties. Now that David and I have a pool, I want our kids to have similar experiences so we throw several summertime swim/bbq parties. To kick off the season, we hosted a Memorial Day party. We had a blast with everyone who came! I loved how even the dad's were in the pool throwing their kids around and being chased by others. We had bbq chicken, hot dogs, potato and pasta salads, chips, cupcakes, and cookies to eat. There's a firepit in our backyard, but it's too wide to hold any grill tops, so David made a stack of bricks on the far side and used the oven racks as a grill top. Very clever! He had also spent the entire day weeding the pool area. I had asked him to take care of the big tall weeds, but he went beyond that and got rid of all the crabgrass as well! Now it looks awesome out there! Thanks, David! =) I wasn't able to get very many pictures cause I wasn't smart enough to charge my camera the night before and it was dead for pretty much the whole time. Sad. But here's the ones I was able to get.

Jaders doesn't usually stay in the water long enough for me to get pictures of her. She said her heart was too fast and she needed a break.

David tormenting Amber and Taylee

Don't feel bad for them...they got their revenge! They chased David around the pool squirting him with the noodle. Amber aimed and Taylee blew. Too funny!

After dinner treat! These are some happy girls! =)
