4th of July Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend. Bryan's parent came in Thursday night. Friday, we finished cleaning up around the house, and prepared for a BBQ with lots of friends. Everyone came over for good food, bringing along their favorite dishes. It was delicious and a lot of fun to have all our friends over.

Bry had picked up a few fireworks (sparklers, roman candles, etc.) so we had fun watching him light those and even let Landon hold his own sparklers. He loved it.

On Saturday, Mel came by with a surprise! She picked up batman suits. The boys promptly put on their outfits, masks, capes and all. Lan didn't move much at first, but then they ran to the office to watch Superfriends.

Then Nic and I went up to Summerwood to see Sandy. We took Seth some birthday presents and had a great time visiting with Sandy, watching Seth play and holding baby Sage. He's still tiny, but definitely growing. Wish I would have taken some pictures while we were there.

We also went to the Dickinson Wildlife park. It was overcast on Sunday morning, so it was perfect weather (for July) and the animals were all out, ready to eat. Lan kept saying, "Look, more deers." "More deers!" "Mama, more deers." LOL.

Then we went over to Joe's for some great bbq, then on over to Froberg's farmer market. We picked up plums, cherries, zuchinni, squash, bell peppers, etc. Everything looked so fresh.

Then it was home to nap. We had a great weekend. Which went by entirely too fast.


  1. I can't wait till Halloween to see Batman & Robin. They will be sooo cute.

  2. We had so much fun at your house!! Thanks for throwing a great BBQ!

  3. I don't know about you, but fireworks freak me out. I love to watch them, but the thought of Jenna having anything to do with lighting them terrifies me! Glad you had a good 4th.

  4. Thanks for the comment Jodie! I really like that stroller, don't you? We had a Zooper before and this one is so much easier to maneuver and collapse.

    I love the picture of Lan and you feeding the camels, adorable! His expression is priceless!
