Weekend Recap

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).
The kids
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!

Thank freaking god we are not those prissy girls. And besides real men like a broad who drinks beer not a spritzer.

Looks like you had a great time!

I've been pelted with ash at a fireworks display, too. NOT fun! You just wonder if you're going to catch fire!

TrueJerseyGirl said...

Trust me, Nat, this was not just ash but full-fledged shrapnel. The biggest piece we got hit with was about 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. And yes, I was most worried about my Jersey hair catching fire!

Wow, you had a full great week-end! Hey, I would be sitting in the non-prissy group too. I am too loud and opinionated to be with those chicks. Its usually me sitting with the guys!

I'm glad you had a good time! Too bad about the ash; that's happened to me too. Your fireworks picture is great, tho :-) I love spahklahs, too!

trine said...

glad you had a great time, True, and VERy glad the hair is OK!

i have to admit I love my red wine and occasional intellectual conversation, but there is where the comparison with your prissy girls end... you gotta have some fun as well!

Taylor said...

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend. And of course Princess is darling as usual!

I hate snobs like that also! Glad I'm not one - LOL.

InterstellarLass said...

Ugh! Girly-girls! Bah! I heart beer.

Dawn said...

So are you his childhood friends or his new friends? Do you think he realizes they are snobby?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Your Fourth of July sounds like fun. Wish we had one like it over here in the UK.

supplymadam said...

Nice to hear you're not one of the prissy ones! Happy 4th!

Lassa said...

Aw you didn't show us the Prissy side as they waited for the fireworks!

Your little Princess is so cute, holding her baby cousin. She'll make a good big sister :)

Mary said...

Great photos! Love the sparkler one especially.

I drink wine, but I'm loud. LOL
I like to think of myself as just barely snobby enough to fit in with the prisses when/if I have to, but comfortable enough chuggin' the Newcastles with the 'normal' gals, too. ;)

Glad you had a happy Fourth.
We were so busy I didn't even post about the weekend. But we had fun hanging out with some of hubby's friends, swimming and eating and eating and swimming.

Miss_Vicki said...

Let's all go beat up the prissy girls!! LMAO sorry, I got caught up in the moment :) Glad you had a nice weekend. Mine was pretty boring, but relaxing I guess ya could say. I want me a cheesesteak and an Italian hoagie pront-frickin-o!!

Elle said...

Indigo said...

I can't get over how much Princess looks like you! Glad you had a great 4th!

Heather said...

"Your side" looks like a lot of fun! I am not prissy either. Can't stand prissy girls!

mcgibfried said...

just thought you may like to know.

Cristie said...

hi, found you via xtessa, via fickenchingers. I agree about the snobby prissy chicks, cant stand 'em!!! Neat photos, took me a sec to figure out the sparkler one!

Loz said...

thank god we don't need to be prissy girls!!

as usual Princess is the picture of adorability, I'm in the same boat with my nephew who looks at fireworks and seems to just think "huh, nice" and loses interest.

Michele said...

How wonderful that you had a great weekend.

Question: Is it possible to dislike beer and not be snobby?
Answer from non-prisy girl who hates beer: hell yeah!!
