We had such a busy weekend. But isn't 4th of July weekend always just crazy?
Friday night were the fireworks in our town. Princess barely even registed that they were going on - she was having much more fun being chased by Uncle J around the park. The fireworks were really nice, although we were right in the windstream of the fireworks so we kept getting pelted with firework shrapnel. Fun.
On Saturday morning, we head up to Connecticut for our twice-annual family reunion (my side of the family). It seemed a little lower key this year, but I am not sure why. The night ended before midnight, which is very unlike us. We had fun though, and did the typical 4th of July stuff - bbq, softball, shopping, frisbee golf, and poker.
We spent the night up there, and then had some friends over Sunday night to bbq. That was fun, and we played with sparklers. No one even got hurt.
On Monday, we spent the early afternoon at the American Legion, where Hub's dad is the Commander. They had a bbq and Princess got to spend some time with her cousins on Hub's side. This is Princess (the littlest girl) and her two cousins (who are brother and sister).
And last night, we went to a bbq at our friend Diddy's house. It was odd because his childhood friends were there and his current friends were there, and we all started out sitting together but gradually we split into two distinctive groups. They were snobby and we were normal. When we got home I asked Hub, would you rather that I was "dignified" like those girls? He was like, what do you mean? I said, well, they are all prissy and super-girlie and drink wine and speak softly and I...am not any of those things. He said "Of course not! Who wants a prissy girl?" Anyway, it was a fun bbq and we saw more fireworks, and Princess had fun running around and tearing up someone else's yard. Here is "our side" of the bbq as we were waiting for the fireworks to start.
Hope you all enjoyed your 4th!
