4th of July 2013


Hope y’all had a great 4th of July!  It was nice to have a day off to spend with family.  I wish it would have fallen on a Friday so I didn’t have to go back to work the day after….but still very thankful for a day off!  We’ve been super busy the last few weekends with company in town.  My parents came for a visit last weekend.  It couldn’t have come at a better time & lifted my spirits to see them.  I miss my Mom & Dad soooooo much!

Connor is at such a fun age right now and he’s getting into holidays and understanding them a bit more.  He’s my lil’ firecracker 🙂


Terence didn’t want his picture taken.  I practically have to chase him down.  He’s not as keen on it as I am….ha ha!  I made Connor Mickey Mouse pancakes for breakfast.  This is something my Nannie made Bonnie and I growing up.  We loved it and I knew he would too.  He loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, he kept calling them “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” pancakes.  We picked up some Starbucks , ate lunch, and did some running around.

I think he ate two of them.  He’s getting so big!D7K_2317

Later that night we drove up the hill in our neighborhood and saw fireworks from two different cities.  It was very nice weather and a good way to end the night!

Of course the popping noises didn’t end until late into the evening….but you learn to tune those out.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. xoxo
