Happy Independence Day!

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day! We've had such a full weekend.

My mom picked up the older girls on Thursday for a sleep-over - what a treat to have just the baby at home! Friday, we went over to her house and BBQ'd and then went over to the county fairgrounds for their Sparklebration celebration and to watch fireworks. Unfortunately, less than 30 minutes after getting there, the skies let loose and it rained poured. Once it let up enough, we left and drove home, upset about not getting to see fireworks. We ended up driving over to Weeki Wachee and watched the fireworks that they set off from the side of the road, along with half of the city. Happy that we got to see fireworks and tired from a long day, we all crashed as soon as we got home.

We all slept in a little later than usual on Saturday and then the girls and I went and did our weekly shopping. We picked up some water squirters from Target and the girls played in the sprinklers with those for a while. We had an amazing dinner, complete with our own watermelon eating contest (Celeste won!), and then played Scrabble together.

Today has been a nice relaxing day. We took the girls to see Wall-E. Such a good movie and I love the message - we have to take care of our Earth. It was neat to see the realization on Celeste's face that the longer people were lazy, the bigger they would get and the harder it was for them to not be lazy. We played some hide and seek and now the kids are getting in bed.

I hope everyone has had as good a weekend as we've had. I love family weekends.
