Memorial Day Weekend Happenings

Memorial Day weekend was a relaxing and fun one for us! It really made us feel like summer has arrived.
Work and school have been pretty crazy for both of us lately so we definitely enjoyed some time to relax. 

The pool opened on Saturday and we were really excited to go. It was nice, but it was kind of gloomy out. I’m really excited to go back on a sunny day and get some much needed Vitamin D. (I promise Scott had fun!)
Sunday evening we went and visited Scott’s little sister’s grave and enjoyed a delicious dinner with his family.

Monday morning Scott and I got up early and ran a Memorial Day 5K (there is nothing better than a free 5K!). Then we went and visited my Nana’s grave. Her grave is so beautiful! I love going there and thinking about her. She was one amazing woman. 
Then we had a big memorial day brunch! Oh my goodness, this may sound a bit ridiculous, but these were the best pancakes I have ever had! They are chocolate chip bacon bit pancakes. Sounds a little crazy, but it was heaven.
Afterward, five of us went on a nice long bike ride in the summer sun. I wish I would have taken my phone or camera because it was such a beautiful ride! All I have is this picture of us relaxing in the shade right after we got back. 
To end the day we had a delicious Memorial Day BBQ! This was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! Grilled pineapple, pepper jack cheese and J-dawgs sauce equals HEAVEN on earth. It was so good I didn’t even miss the bun. 
Last week I officially started collecting data for my thesis. I’m excited that my friend Katie and I are working together! That makes the whole experience that much better!
Scott was such a sport and was my first test subject. He let me glue electromagnetic sensors all over his tongue, teeth, lips and wore the ultra stylish sensor glasses. 
Life is fun!:)
