4th of July Weekend

So despite the bummer of 4th of July weekend (which I talked about in my last post), we still had a pretty good one. I didn't take many pictures at all, but I did get a few!

I think this was the Wednesday before 4th of July weekend, but I have to share it anyway! Silly dog!

We were off work Friday, so this is me with my coworkers Cheryl & Morgan heading out at 5:00 on Thursday afternoon! Goodbye, workplace! HELLO, three day weekend! :)

LOVED being off on Friday!! I had a free day to do whatever, and since there was no rain in the forecast (for once!), I went to my parent's house for a swim. My friend Amanda joined me! We swam and talked for a few hours. Had a great time. Love this girl! 

Fourth of July started with lunch & swimming at my parent's house. Fievel was very excited to get to go for a ride!

Everything looked SO good! Mom made the best barbeque chicken, baked & sweet potatoes, her amazing green beans and her wonderful baked beans! She also made my grandmother's homemade  vanilla ice cream, which is the BEST! Michelle made her famous apple pie! Everything was absolutely delicious! (I know that's a lot of big adjectives, but really... we had some good food!)

My view for an hour or so while we waited for the rain to stop! It wasn't just raining, it was storming! I so wanted to swim! Finally gave up and went in the living room for some TV. (Well, TV for some, napping for others!)

FINALLY it stopped raining!! Michelle & Mike had to go, as they had evening plans in their city, but me, Brad & my parents swam for a couple of hours!! We had a so much fun! Beach volleyball and Marco Polo, anyone?!

We finally got out, and got dressed, and headed over to Brad's Aunt & Uncle's house. For dinner there was hotdogs, hamburgers, and ALL KINDS of other deliciousness! Including this cake. SO GOOD!

We had to leave early because I wasn't feeling so great, but it was still a pretty good day!

Sunday we took this picture because we didn't get a picture in our red white & blue on Saturday! Even though I didn't really get much of the red white & blue! Oops! :)

Hope you had a great fourth of July weekend!


  1. Great blog -- except that I made the ice cream using my mother's recipe. All dad did was put the ice n rock salt in the electric freezer n plug it in!

    1. Oops! I edited it to show you made it, mom! :)

  2. Looks like a good weekend. I wish I knew someone who had a pool I could use whenever I wanted!! :)
