A Fun-Filled Fourth!

A better title would be a fun-filled 3rd, 4th, and 5th since we celebrated ALL weekend long!

Small-town parade with dear friends | sun | more sun | candy | not enough sunscreen | red-white-and-blue EVERYWHERE | lunch on the patio at La Casa Fiesta | more friends | ice cream at the Rock House | playing with neighbors | rest | burgers | dinner with Deena | bedtime collapse.

This guy was dancing to the Village People's Y-MCA!

SUPER DUPER fun 4th of July block party | crafts for kids | slip 'n slide | water balloons | perfect weather | grills everywhere | so much food! | laughing kiddos | laughing adults | birthday candles, singing, and cake | adult water fight | NO PHOTOS!!! | love our neighbors | they've become dear friends | exhaustion | attempt(s) to nap | failure to nap | a trip to fireworks stand | excited kids | rain | thunder | lightning | hail | more rain | waiting | more rain | waiting | tornado warnings | crazy lightning | rain, rain, rain | hail, hail, hail | fireworks viewing plans cancelled | but fireworks shows NOT cancelled | one shocked mama | fireworks viewed from patio door while it poured | pretty much a bust | disappointed kids | disappointed mama | sparklers in the rain | not much fun | tucked sun-kissed kiddos in bed | everyone asleep within minutes | including parents.

Fun continues | John home from work | blueberry scones for breakfast | lazy morning | soaked up some (more) sun | rested a bit | drove to Castle Rock | Toy Story 3 | (tears) | (more tears) | Chick-Fil-A | home | visited outside with neighbors | impromptu street fireworks | happy kids | exhausted parents. 

Perfect holiday weekend!!!

What fun! I knew you'd cry in Toy Story 3:) Me too!

Is that your blue house in the picture? It's adorable! I love it.

Jill said...

Wow, your weekend sounds like ours, minus the rain...we just had very hot temps. Came across your blog and it's delightful! I saw Toy story 3 also and yes the tears were there too! What a great movie and what a message! Hope you have a wonderful week.

The 4th is grand. We didn't make it to any fireworks display this year but we did have two cookouts. Potato salad two days in a row is reason enough to celebrate.

Michele said...

Looks like you had a great weekend! Fun!!!

Christy said...

Sounds like tons of fun. Homemade blueberry scones? If so, could you post the recipe or email me? neemee1974 at yahoo dot com. We just went blueberry picking today and we love them surrounded with bread. :)

Too bad you, Deena, & CPQ couldn't coordinate your meetings!
