The Fourth

As most of you know... I love the fourth of July!! I love being outside, playing outside games, fishing derbies, PARADES, fireworks, grilling... the works!! BUT... this year the weather did not cooperate as we wished. No outside, no outside games, a fishing derby in the rain (still fun for a bit), no parade... but the grilling was yummy and the fireworks were fabulous and of course it was all in good company! We spent the weekend at my sister Becky's in the Quad Cities... thanks Becky for the fun weekend!! Even though the weather threw us for a loop we made the most of it and had a great weekend!! However, I did miss out on some photo ops... including one of all three of my girls in their dresses I slaved over :) Oh well, maybe I'll pose them another day!! So, here you go... a TON of pictures for ya to see. I am not going to caption each one, or I'd be here all night (an its already midnight!!) So you will see my side of the family... my Dad & Mary {Nana}, my sister Becky, her fiance Jake and their boy Levi, my sister Jessie and the Garner family (Thanks again for the yummy supper on Sunday!!)...
