Christmas in July

We certainly had fantastic 4th of July weekend.

My sister, brother-in-law, 4 month old baby and their enormous dog came to visit for the long weekend.

Smiley began checking out her cousin when they arrived.

Friday morning the men hit the golf course and us ladies... we hit the trails. We ran (ok, jogged) 4+miles. Sassy and Action biked while Smiley and the "little man" reclined in their strollers.

Then we took off for the pool.

Smiley LOVES the water!
Saturday rolled in and....

Happy 4th of July!


Have any of you seen the movie Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase. I know silly question. Well, you know crazy cousin Eddie and his interesting family? I think my sister thought they would try to emulate them.

Before noon, the little guy had had a blow out on the sheets, so the laundry was going. Their enormous dog had puked on our off-white carpet leaving a lovely pink stain. And the toilet had been clogged.

Ok, the sun began to peek through the thick clouds and it was time to get the boat out on the water.

One twirl around the lake and a quick hop in the water to cool off and my darling husband looked up and decided it was time to put the bimini top up on the boat.... Just in case.

Well, thank goodness he did because at that exact minute the rain began to fall. And then harder and then a little bit harder.

We waited and waited. Knowing in time the rain would pass. About 40 minutes later it did, the sun came out and we spent the rest of the afternoon on the lake enjoying ourselves! My brother-in-law even entertained us with a few flips off the side of the boat ~ unfortunately no documentation of that sight!

Evening arrived and it was time for a few legal (bummer) fireworks.

We had a wonderful weekend. I hope you did as well.

E, S, "little man" and "big dog" even though you learned from the best....

Thanks for coming to visit and we look forward to the next time!
