Our 4th

We had a great 4th of July weekend!  (The only thing that would have made it better would be if my hubby was there)
I got the house decorated in a few of my patriotic things.  (I am going to leave them up till hubby comes in for R&R)  I also lined my flower beds and driveway in flags

I got to use my superb grilling skills.  As you can see in the picture below I have no business at all cooking on the grill:
These were hot dogs at one time...I forgot about them (aka I was busy running my mouth) and this is what happened to them.  we had to go to the store to purchase more and I was told that my help was not needed...I don't understand why no one wanted me to grill the food (;

Other than the burnt food, we had a lot of great food and a lot of great company! 
As you know, my brother is home so the kids were loving swimming with Uncle Jeremy.

After a full day of eating and swimming we went to see the fireworks show on Saturday evening.
Madeline, Chase, Lillie and Jack

On Monday the 4th it was back to more swimming and more eating (I seriously think all I did this holiday weekend was eat, blah)
The kids were loving all the swimming.  As you can see in the picture below, "bunny ears" are the new thing in all our pictures (silly kids!)
Jack and Madi

Jack and our friend Wesley...again with the "bunny ears"

And of course, a picture of Madeline and me

We had a great 4th! 

We are counting down the days until Jason is home on R&R (YAY!)
