Red, White, & Blue Weekend...

Saturday...we headed out to Hughes Springs to visit Tab's family. His brother's family was all here from Denver so we wanted to hang out with them for a while. As soon as we got there, we headed to the pool. Nixon LOVES the water. I was shocked that he kind of figured this ring out and made sure he didn't fall through the middle.

Our crazy crew enjoying the pool.

Then it was picture time...A.J. took some lovely pictures for us.

Too bad Nixon isn't looking...the best we could get!


Love this! Brecken is loving it...huh?


I LOVE Garrett's smile in this picture...ha!








Aunt Eleni brought Nixon this Mater lawn mower and he was in love. He pushed it around the entire time we were there.


This picture is out of order...oops! Check out my dirty girl in front.


Before...


After...


Sunday night we ended the fun in Hughes Springs and headed back home. We had a great time visiting and hanging out with everyone there.




On the 4th, we went to the 4th of July parade downtown. It was SO hot, but SO much fun!! I'm a sucker for a parade...don't ask me why??


The 4 of us...we stumbled upon the Easons and the Gerbrandts and we were so glad we did. They had great seats right by the curb!


Our group ready to watch the parade.


Ebby Lee loved it! She kept asking, "Where are the horses?"...so glad there were horses in that parade!




After the parade, we went home and took big naps. Then Casey & Sarah came over to swim and grill out.

We celebrated Casey's birthday with some delicious brownies & ice cream!!


Ebby Lee relaxed a little with the Wonder Pets. Daddy watched too.


We all bathed, got in our pajamas, and we went to watch the fireworks.


All cozy on our blanket and ready to see the fireworks!!


Ebby Lee loved them!! She clapped and cheered for ALMOST every one! I'm sure the people around us were excited about that...ha!
The Easons & Gerbrandts met us for the firework show, but the picture I took of everyone watching didn't turn out too well.




Then it was off to bed for some much needed sleep!
