Memorial Day Weekend

This past weekend Roderick and I had a fun time with friends and each other. It was a very relaxing, but full weekend. I was only able to take one picture, as I forgot the camera for every other event! = ( I think I need to invest in a camera that can fit in a pocket or purse. I love pictures and hate not having a camera when there's a fun event! Oh well! We tried to figure out how many different things we could fit into the time.
