firecracker, firecracker sis boom bah

WOW!  With July 4th falling on a Wednesday, we pretty much celebrated America's birthday all week long!  We spent lots of time with both of our families - visiting, eating, drinking, relaxing.

Preston and Lyla stayed with my parents for a couple of nights.  They swam, played at the park, rode scooters, played tennis, ate lots of junk food and stayed up way past their bedtime.  Thanks mom and dad for keeping them - they loved it!

Which meant that Grant and I had two calm, quiet nights at home.  Usually when we leave the kids, we go somewhere. So it was a little strange to be home by ourselves.  We had a wonderful uninterrupted dinner out one evening.  And after we got home from dinner, we sat on the back patio and had this beautiful full moon as our view.

Wednesday, we drove to Shiner to pick up P & L and stayed the day to celebrate the fourth and to celebrate my two sisters' birthdays.  We ate yummy fourth of July foods, visited with family and watched the kids swim.  Thanks Aunt Patty and Uncle Billy for having us!

We watched LOTS of fireworks this week.  Starting Saturday June 30th and pretty much every night until Saturday July 7th there were fireworks to be seen.  And I enjoyed each and every one!

We wrapped up our fourth festivities this weekend at the coast.  We packed the car and headed out on Friday afternoon and had a great weekend with my brother and sister in law and their boys.

Thankful for a fun filled week!
