We had such a great 4th of July weekend. We left Thursday evening and headed out to my Aunt Nette’s house for a weekend of camping with the fam. The first night was just my aunt and uncle, Brian, the boys, my cousins, my grandma and my Mom and Dad and I. We played some Texas Hold ’em and sat around a fire, where Delyn and Jason joined us late. The next morning, I got up at 7:00 and ran 2 miles, then headed back to the house for breakfast and a shower. More family showed up on Friday to spend the weekend. All of us basically lived in our bathing suits all weekend and played tons of games, swam in the pool, etc. We finished off each night with a nice campfire and lots of laughing. On Saturday, we set up a tournament with brackets for playing the different games and it was a ton of fun. After dinner, a bunch of people played volleyball. I went for my 2 mile run that evening. Sunday, we all got up and had breakfast and hung out for a while. We played some volleyball in the pool and sunbathed a little. We played a few games, but spent most of the time just hanging out and talking. Poor Aunt Nette had to get up at 4:00 the next morning to work, and Brian, the kids and I didn’t even leave until after 11:30. It was hard to leave after such a great weekend with a ton of the people I love the most. I really cherish these times we spend together and am grateful to have such a close family. So, that was our weekend. Here are just a few random pictures. I realize that most of the pictures were taken on someone else’s camera so hopefully I’ll get those later.
On a side note…as I was taking a shower on Thursday to get ready to go to my Aunt and Uncle’s house, I heard Asher say to me through the shower door “Daddy’s socks.” I looked out and he was wearing some of Brian’s work socks. He was so proud of himself and looked so dang cute, so I had to take some pictures.
