Let freedom ring!

This 4th of July weekend has been awesome! My brother, Kenneth, and his fiance, Nicole, came in town to spend the long weekend with us, and we've had a lot of fun! Saturday morning we went to a neighborhood parade to kick-off the festivities...

My mom & her BFF, Lisa, rode their scooters together...

Most of Lisa's family lives in the neighborhood, so they were all in the parade! You might remember that precious pig-tailed girl from previous posts...

She rode with her momma & grandparents with Dad riding his scooter alongside.

There were even classic cars that had the guys drooling!

I do love Mustangs...they're so pretty!

My precious parents...

The soon to be Mr. & Mrs.!

And my sweet hubby & me...he's so handsome!

After the parade, there was home-ade ice cream in a nearby church gym for everyone to enjoy! I didn't have any because I'm afraid of getting "glutened," but from what I could tell it was pretty yummy! Natalie was such a friendly girl that day, so we were all passing the munchkin around :)

I love her snuggles.

Saturday night we went back over to Al & Lisa's for their annual 4th of July BBQ. We enjoyed a shmorgishborg of salads, chips, dips, fruits, hot dogs, & desserts! After we stuffed ourselves silly, we hung out on their porch just visiting and laughing. I love being with family and friends who feel like family! Natalie, of course, provided endless entertainment. Dad read to her for awhile...he's going to make a great grandpa some day!

Al & Lisa...

Humidity & rain do amazing things to my hair....(sarcasm!)

After the BBQ, Rob & I met up with some of his friends from high school who were in town. We had fun catching up with everyone!

Sunday morning, we went to church and had lunch with Rob's grandparents then we went over to their house for home-ade fresh peach pie. Nanny even made me a crustless one! It was so delicious. There's just nothin' like your grandma's cookin! Sunday afternoon, we went to my grandparent's house for, you guessed it, MORE eating! Haha - it's just the American way, right? We spent a few hours hanging out with them, and we had fun, but I didn't take any pictures! When we came back in town, we went back to Al & Lisa's for fireworks.

We had a fun-family-friend & food-filled fourth!
I am so thankful for my freedoms and for those who serve to protect it!

I'm also thankful that I didn't have school or work today to recover from all the fun! Also, today is mine & Rob's 2 year wedding anniversary! We're going out to celebrate tonight, so I'll dedicate a separate post to that :) I know I say it all the time, but we sure are blessed!

I soooo wish we could have spent the weekend with all of you! It looks like you had a blast and I can't wait till we all reunite.
