*Happy* Fourth of July!

Ahh, this weekend has been so refreshing and absolutely what our family needed. Days filled with laying around in bed, playing with our kids and taking little random trips out into civilization here and there. Usually I’m the type to have my bed made within about 5 minutes of being up for the day. However, this weekend our bed has been unmade almost all weekend and I’ve loved every second of it. Here’s a little of today’s ventures..after church we did some cookie baking…none other than the precut, predesigned Fourth of July cookies:

(*sidenote* why my youngest makes freakish faces for the camera, I do not know. But, I promise he’s cute.)

Here’s the before picture. I’m afraid you won’t be seeing an after picture….

Later tonight we made our trek over to Boppa’s house (my dad). I am so thankful he lives only one street away and is such an active influence in my kids life. I don’t take an ounce of this for granted, especially since I grew up living far away from my grandparents.

A perfect evening filled with rock throwing and fishing….

..and a perfect ending to the day, with none other than a Justin Bieber and Cha-Cha Slide (on repeat, of course) dance party in Boppa’s living room. Thanking the Lord for such a wonderful, happy weekend with my family and looking forward to celebrating with lots of friends today, at what will surely be an awesome Fourth of July cookout!
