4th of July Weekend...fun, food, festivities & more!!!

Well, cousins of mine came in from Atlanta to visit for the 4th of July. They got to my aunts house Thursday and stayed til Monday. Last year, we celebrated the 4th in G'town watching the fireworks display. This year, my parents had a get together/cookout @ their house.

Addie and I started the weekend out going to my parent's house Friday to visit and help get things ready for Saturday. My cousins were there also so we hung around for awhile. They haven't seen Addie for several months so the kids got to play a little early. Addie is crawling everywhere and trying to walk so she was "busy" trying to get around(and into everything)the whole night! ]

On Saturday for the 4th, we drove to P'town again. This time, Scott came w/us, but he had to leave early for work:( After we ate, we all sat around on the screen porch talking, playing and laughing. The kids played a little cornhole. The weather didn't look great so we started shooting a few fireworks early to pass the time. Then, the rain came down!!! Some people were still shooting them around us, but we called it a night and said we would continue the next day if we could. Speaking of shooting, I can't believe that about Steve McNair getting shot! That's a whole different story. Anyway, My family got together again the next night and shot the fireworks, but we spent the day at a friend's pool (it rained again) and spent time with them.

Overall, it was a good weekend. Next year, we hope to take Addie to see a fireworks show when she's a little older and aware of what's going on. She wasn't a bit enthused w/sparklers or the fireworks that she did get to see!
Don't forget to mute my playlist. Also, light the match so the slideshow will begin.
