Warning: Photo overload in this post!
I'm disappointed that this holiday is over so quickly. It's probably a good thing though because I'm still exhausted from all the shenanigans. Good thing it's almost the weekend again:)
It was a fantastic 4 days away from work and filled with lots of food.
My hubs made it home Wednesday night, just in time to shower and change before heading to a 3rd of July party. We ate some food, drank some drinks, and watched people try to blow things up. What's not to love?
|Excuse me, it was so cold, I wore a sweater. In July.|
|My cousin Sophia and my husband have a very love-hate relationship.|
|Sophia and I just have a Love-love relationship.|
|No one was harmed during the exploding of these explosives.|
Thursday morning I got a little sleep while Seth mowed the yard. His favorite thing to do. Seriously, it is. I cut up some fruit to take to the family reunion at my Grandma's and we picked up a bucket of fried chicken. Oh yum, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
|What? You don't cut your fruit into star shapes?|
Lots of people showed up to Grandma's and after saying the pledge of allegiance and praying we chowed down on all the food.
|Grandpa leading the group in The Pledge. Enjoy the socks.|
|Julie, would you like some carbs with your chicken? Why yes, I think I would thanks!|
|Perhaps a slice of Peanut Butter Pizza as well? Don't mind if I do!|
It was then time to relax and enjoy our adult bevvies while watching little kids. So responsible, aren't we?
|Maybe my husband and I have reclining lawn chairs.|
|My cousin Dominic and his girlfriend with the most patriotic |
hand-painted cooler I've ever seen!
|I don't even know. Yankee doodle dandy maybe?|
|Just eating a brownie before her sister can steal it from her.|
Since a bunch of the cousins were decked out in our matching apparel we thought it best to take a photo. Obviously, we ordered our Grandparent's shirts as well. What Grandparent's wouldn't love a "Time to Get Star Spangled Hammered" shirt?
|Here's a terribly unflattering photo of me with some of the cousins. You're welcome.|
|Me and hubs. Mildly freaked out by overly skinny wrists.|
We were the entertained by a hearty rendition of "cups" courtesy of my cousin Michael.
Seth managed to hit not one but two triples in the family softball game. His team won. nbd.
|Good thing he hit the ball far because he's not too fast. Sorry love.|
Then we ate some more (not to be confused with a s'more) before enjoying all the night time fireworks.
|Grandma and Grandpa enjoying the fireworks.|
Notice Grandpa never changed out of his shirt:)
It was definitely an amazing 4th and no one lost an eye. Bonus! Can't wait until the next one:)
