Sorry for the absence this week...a certain dog I know chewed through my laptop's power cord so I've been stuck with a dead computer. I'm borrowing my mom's power cord right now and crossing my fingers that my new one comes in soon. How about a quick 4th of July weekend recap? We started our festivities on the third with some fireworks. But, as you can see in the picture below, we started well before dark. :)
Love these two!
A little girl on a big country road. How cute is she??
Bren is so sassy that she can't even pose with her sparkler without putting her hand on her hip. Love it.
Girl cousin love!!
The boys broke rule #1 listed on the roman candles: do not hold them in your hand while lit! They are so brave. (Where is that sarcastic font when you need it??)
My oldest brother texted me yesterday to inform me that I was behind on the blog. I didn't realize he was such an avid reader. For calling me out on it, I give you this picture of him. Maybe I had really good timing with my camera clicking, or maybe he had tacos for dinner. Who really knows?
Doc started his fourth of July out on the golf course, while Katie bug and stayed home and made some treats. These were s'more bites with a little 4th of July flair added on top. They were pretty good, but the batch I made the next day was even better!
That afternoon, we all gathered at my brother Ben's house for some fun in the pool. But, we couldn't jump in before taking a picture of the matching cousins in their fireworks shirts. :)
Katie Wynn found herself in the middle of a game of water basketball between the guys.
This float was perfect for these two cuties.
All that swimming wore my baby girl out, and she passed out in her Mimi's arms.
As the final shot from our 4th of July holiday, I give you my first homegrown bouquet!! I am so proud of all my zinnias...they are really blooming now!
It was a great holiday and we enjoyed having lots of time off work. (I personally had a five day weekend...why isn't every weekend like that??) I'll be back soon with more...maybe of the bathroom reno we knocked out last weekend!
