Fourth of July Fun...

...we spent our Fourth of July weekend like we do every Fourth of July...working! It's part of our jobs, we know it so we just deal. We try to make the best of it that we can, some year's we just chill at home and are in bed before fireworks go off, other year's we make an effort to see fireworks and this year, we spent Saturday evening hanging out with some friends.

We headed over to Tom's house where the boys bbq-ed some chicken-yum!!! Kim and Tom had a nice spread for us and we were sooo full!We played some washers...in which the girls DOMINATED!!! (at least in the first game!)Mattie and I chillin' and waiting for dinner (FYI-I stained the stairs that we are sitting on and I have to comment how good they look every time we go over to Tom's!)Tom was very excited about this roll of 4,000 fire crackers......and I didn't have to heart to tell him that there were really only 3,999...So it was a pretty fun evening, nice and relaxing. I told Matt that I had a lot of fun because unlike other times when we hang out with large groups or his family, I actually got to play the games and talk! Sometimes it's hard to get a word in or to call next game, so it was a lot of fun to hang with just another couple and enjoy the Fourth of July! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

And OH! Dusty will be stateside for GOOD this Friday, July 9 then back in MO for good the last week of July!!! We're so excited to have him home. Thanks for protecting us Dusty!!!

It's a bummer that you could have had the real 4th together if your work hadn't been so silly. Boo.

Q had to work as well and I missed him. Call me a sap BUT there is something SO romantic about kissing underneath all the pretties and booms. It sounds like you had a lot of fun though!
