Our Fourth

Hey, y'all.  You ever feel like the day is going by way too quickly and you're not getting anything done?  

All the time?  Well...me, too.  Especially the last few days. I haven't necessarily been super busy, but before I know it, I look up and it's 10:00 PM. 

Not cool.  I have so much left to do before going back to work (in a month), and the clock is ticking away... I'm simply not getting ANYTHING accomplished.

Anyhoo...enough complaining about my first world problems.  Despite the short days, all is well.  M is on four-days-a-week swim lessons for a couple of weeks, and she's enjoying that.  

I got to spend time with my friend E and her brand new baby girl the other day, which was a sweet, sweet treat. She and her hubby moved from Atlanta a couple of months ago to be closer to home as they began their journey as a family.  I cannot be more thrilled -- especially since I am IN LOVE with that precious baby girl!

I also went and got my hair cut -- spur of the moment! -- and have been enjoying my new look.  More on that later, though.  

Let's talk about the Fourth.  'Cause we had a great one.

My aunt hosted a family shindig at her house -- you know, food, laughter, good times...  She happens to live right on a lake that hosts the area fireworks show, too, so we even got "front row" seats to the evening action.



It was rainy and yucky (and actually kinda cool) that day, but that didn't stop these two kids -- my Dad and M -- from getting out there and having some skating fun.  (Remember my dad is kinda serious about the knee pads and stuff.  Clearly.)


I think they would've skated all day had the rain let up.

Sweet pic of M and my mom.
We sat out near the lake and watched them skate -- in the rain.  Good times!


This is my sweet Aunt R, who hosted the shindig. She and my Aunt L had the place cute and patriotic, and her husband J made sure we ate well. (Why yes, my hair is so big and crazy that it's nearly blocking my aunt's face, but I'd been in the rain, people. Since this picture, I've gotten rid of some of that hair.  Outta control...)


My dad with three of his girls . My step-mom and other sister were in Baltimore with their church that day, so we missed them.


I was happy we got to see the baby sis, though.  We don't get to see her often since she's always away at college whenever we do come around.  (She'll be done soon! So proud of her!)


Love.

Pic of M, my mom, and me that I stole from my aunt's Facebook. :-)


The fireworks show was awesome.  M hates loud noises (she held her ears and stayed close to her daddy the whole time), but she loved it.  She's STILL talking about it.


We didn't take a group pic until the end of the night when folks had already left, but I still love this pic.  My fam!  What's even sweeter is that I get to see them again next month for a family reunion (already looking forward to it)!  We had a great Fourth!  Thanks, Aunt R, for having us!

I'm gonna hit the sack now. Maybe watch a little DVR.  I'm only watching two things this summer (The Game and The Haves and Have Nots), and they both come on on Tuesdays.  So my DVR has new presents for me tonight!

Enjoy the rest of your week, peeps!  If you want to hear about my hairscapades, check back in a couple of days. It's been interesting! :-)

Be back soon!

Love,
G
