4th of July Weekend

We had such a wonderful, jam packed 4th of July weekend. Life with these two crazies is never dull. I can't even begin to tell you how many times we crack up laughing at what these two goofballs say or do. 

We took the kiddos to the mall to ride the carousal on Thursday and they had a blast. Aubrey loved riding horse and was such a good big sister to Weston. Weston Hayes was not to sure about the ride but he managed to make it around a few times.
On Saturday evening we went to a friends house for bbq and swimming. C had to work during the day so we met up with him that evening. Our friends live by the levee so we had the chance to go watch the fireworks. We've never done that before and I was a little nervous that the kids would be scared, but they absolutely loved it! Both of them talked about the fireworks or "boom booms" as Weston calls it for days. It was only a 20 minute show, but my kids ate it up! I loved it too...nothing like creating traditions with my loves. I hope to do that again and make it a yearly tradition.



Eating rice crispy treats on the levee while watching fireworks...doesn't get much more American than that.
On Monday, we took the kids to a waterpark and soaked up some rays. My kids are total water babies and would spend their entire days in the pool if I let them. Aubrey will jump off the side of the pool into someone's arms for hours. Weston prefers to just walk around and step on cracks and drains. HAHA!

And on a sad note, my precious grandpa went to be with the Lord this week.  He was 96 years young and lived each day to its fullest. He was a wonderful family man and loved his own with all of his heart. I'm so blessed that my grandpa got to meet both of my children, what an honor that He was able to spend time with them and get to know them and vise versa.  I have such wonderful memories of him and I will cherish the time spent with him forever. We will miss him dearly, but know that he is in a much better place. He is with my granny and I have a feeling they are dancing and playing cards up in heaven, and probably enjoying some ice cream!

Happy 4th! May our country remember that it was built upon God's laws and we will only thrive if we honor Him first. Praying for our nation and believing that the our nation will look to our Savior as our only hope.
