Happy America Day

Monday, July 13, 2015
This is a week late, but we had a great 4th of July weekend celebrating our country's birthday with family and friends.

Saturday morning we got up early and met the Moreland family for brunch on Aunt T's porch. We had lots of yummy food and mimosas of course. And celebrated Apolonia's birthday which is on the 4th. So we had chocolate cake for breakfast. What is more American than that. lol. It was great to get to sit and visit with family. Perry ran around and played. And got totally freaked out by the fake snakes sitting in the windows to scare off the squirrels. It's hard to explain "fake" to a 2 year old.

Love this little American boy!

Later that day we went over to the Garrett's to hang out and grill wings and toast 'smores. Love fun times with friends.

Maybe P will be a soccer star. He certainly looks the part here.

We had wings, potato skins and "red white and blue" cheese and cracker options and just kind of grazed all night.

Sunday night we got together with the Easts for one final Independence Day celebration. Matt grilled out steak and we had lots of sides and finished the meal off with home made ice cream. The Eckleys have this awesome new screened in porch with a big farm table that we all fit at perfectly so we could dine al fresco.

After dinner the kids went for a little walk with Granddaddy around the neighborhood. He was recovering from a biopsy procedure and needed to not sit still too long. It was sweet to see the cousins walk and play together. 

Other festivities included a mentos/diet coke experiment (a different kind of 4th of July explosion) and some side walk chalk play time.

It was a fun weekend all the way around. The weather was super iffy all weekend so given that we did pretty well packing the fun in. I think everyone was shooting off fireworks between rain showers.

Happy Birthday America! Let Freedom Ring!
