How we celebrated

The fourth of July is such a fun holiday. It falls smack dab in the middle of the summer, making it usually a hot sunny day and equally hot evening. Here's how our weekend went:

On Friday I got up early to do some grocery shopping for the weekend, then we laid down a small patio area for our trash cans before lunch and after that went to the pool in the afternoon. All the girls had such a great time. I am thinking I will be making more appearances at the pool with the weather as hot as it is. Too bad it's not within walking distance. Can you tell that the day wore Kambry out? This is yet another episode of falling asleep at the table. She eats really slow so I am usually waiting on her to get done. When I went to check on her, this is how I found her...Saturday started with tidying up the house and relaxing around lunch time. We made some homemade ice cream in the afternoon and some friends came over in the early evening to hang out, grill, eat (of course), and do small fireworks with the girls. My friend made a cake with blueberries and strawberries and it was wonderful!!! I know I will pay for that later with some extra working out. All in all, it was a beautiful day. We did have the threat of rain as I heard thunder in the distance but we were lucky and it passed by and we stayed dry. Here are a few pictures of the day.
