4th of July Weekend

We had a great three day weekend to celebrate the 4th of July! We had Sconyer's BBQ on Friday for lunch at our house. While Adam worked outside, we had chocolate chip muffins and strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream for breakfast.

Then we cleaned up that morning and added a couple more flag decorations. Alabama was so proud that she wrote the God Bless America on the ribbon plate and I didn't even have to tell her how to spell God. They also made the firework art on the fridge earlier in the week. Fun and easy project!
 While Blue slept, Adam and I went to Wal-Mart by ourselves to grab a few things then we came home and ate lunch with everyone. Pate and Alabama painted t-shirts to wear as pajamas to the fireworks in Evans that night. Everywhere was closed, but luckily Five Guys was open so we got some food to tailgate with and we ended up sitting with lots of our church family at a friend's local business. It was perfect to be away from the crowds and not have to walk and carry all of our stuff. We had a great view and great company! Alabama and Pate kept saying how loud it was (it was not.) but they didn't act too crazy! ha! Blue did great the whole time!

Saturday, we stayed home in the morning and I put another coat of paint on my dresser which is turning out great! Adam got up early and cut the grass and then cooked us a yummy breakfast. Alabama thinks she is quite the cook now and likes to help scramble eggs and asks for Adam to teach her how to cook other things like toast and grits. Blue also had his first rice cereal and he loved it! Adam took the big kids to town with him and I took Blue to Hobby Lobby with me. While I was gone, they played in the pool outside and had a big time. When I got back, Pate took a nap and then Mama and Daddy came by with Granny. We went with them to Angie's at Pollard's Corner. (yuck.) We rode across the lake and stopped to get gas then went home and gave bath's to everyone. Adam was outside finishing up the mailboxes (which turned out beautiful!) and Mimi and Tay Tay were here so it was very hard to get the kids in the bed, but they finally fell asleep sometime after 9:45.

Sunday, we got to church at 8:30 and I helped in Alabama's class again. I love it in there. So fun! After church, we went with Audra to Rhinehart's (I've been wanting that for a while!) and then home. Adam dug Pate a hole with the tractor to go muddin' with his jeep. Boys.... He's such a fun Daddy sometimes! I took 6 month pictures with Blue and got him to take a nap. Tonight, we had a 4th of July Fellowship at church with BBQ sandwiches and water toys outside. I just love our church! So blessed! Thankful for a free country and those who have fought to preserve it! Great message today on the state of our nation. You can listen at
