July 4th Holiday Weekend

We had a great holiday weekend! We started out on Friday night with our small group, or well, those of them that were able to come. We missed the Bollings, and Williams’!

We celebrated Mason & Zach’a birthday, too.


We all crowded around the deck with all of our children. It was really fun!!






Dennis wrote me a love note in the driveway! So sweet.


Saturday and Sunday we didn’t reall do a whole lot, but on Monday we went to the pool and hung out with my Dad all day. Dennis enjoyed some pool time with his Dad.





After that, we went to the parade. Daniel was NOT happy with the fire trucks and rescue squads honking their horns and sounding their sirens. I had to talk him through most of that.

Then after that, we went to the Buchanan carnival and celebrated with our annual french fries, petros, and ice cream! It was a lot of fun.

When we go out like this, I don’t bring my Grand Canon, instead, I bring little bitty Canon so that I can easily take pictures. That is why some of these are just blurry and you can see a lot of motion.



This picture below would have been good if the camera would have worked! Grr….



Even with the loud rides, games, and music, our little sleeper went to sleep anyway. He woke up on the first bang of fireworks. He would look up at them and then as soon as the color would disappear he wouldn’t look back up until the bang, and by then, again, the color was pretty much gone. Hopefully next year he will have a better attention span to enjoy the fireworks! It was a great weekend. Now, we are back to the nitty gritty!
