Family. Food. Fireworks. Fourth of July. It doesn't get any better than that. My brother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece came up from Houston for a few days. We have had a great time catching up and visiting with them. We've stayed up into the wee hours of the mourning talking, laughing and eating. C and my niece M are only a month apart in age and have such a good time together.
On Sunday, we all loaded up and headed to Mom and Dad's. My aunts and my favorite cousins were alrady there, as well as my sister's family and my brother. We spent the day eating, boating, swimming, tubing, sunning, etc.
The kids on the dock timing their jump into the water.
The temperature was perfect, not too hot and humid, which is a miracle for July in Arkansas. E was a little upset because she couldn't swim, but she was very good overall.
E on the dock with her cast wrapped in a Wal-Mart bag - just in case.
We watched fireworks from the deck while we visited, which was really great because it was pretty, but not loud. It was a great day.
Today we are super excited to go to my MIL's house and see Hubby's grandmother and "Aunt" Kathy, who is in from Quatar. Kathy is a teacher at an international school and only comes back to the states once or twice a year. It's gonna be great to catch up.
