Weekend Recap...

Whew! What a great weekend! We partied Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. And spent some quality time with the family and friends.

Fourth of July is definitely one of my favorite holidays. We celebrate our nation. The country where we live with liberty. I love the red, white, and blue. Hamburgers, hotdogs, fried chicken, and corn on the cob. Kids playing in the pool and running around in their bathing suits. Moms and dads reclining outside {well, for about 15 seconds until we have to wrangle a kid :)} Can you hear "Born in the USA" in the background?!?!

Not only is it a fun holiday, but it was on the 4th of July, 13 years ago, that I met Matt. {I'm writing the story and hope to have it posted on our anniversary} But this holiday just brings back great memories and it will likely always be my favorite because of that reason.

We watched the California, KY parade. And the kids loved it!

And, of course, watched the best firework show in Northern Kentucky!
