Independence Weekend

We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Saturday was spent shopping for food and spending the evening at home. It is always amazing to me how much more food I have to buy in the summer. ( I know I already mentioned this a post or two ago but I can't help it but say it again, it just blows my mind) We watched two movies this weekend as a family something we rarely do. ( I am a huge movie buff as is Sydnee but Dave and the younger two not so much) But as per tradition their was A LOT of rain this 4th of July weekend so we watched "The Adjustment Bureau" and "Unknown". I really liked "Unknown" it had a lot of action, a great story line and a really good twist at the end. "The Adjustment Bureau" was disappointing. While I thought it was a really great idea there just wasn't enough of a story line and because of that the ending was really lousy.

Sunday we went to my Mom's for a pool/party picnic with my sister's family. Sunday evening we had a little impropmtu get together with some friends. My friend who does not have HBO has been coming over Sunday evenings to watch True Blood with me. ( I know it isn't the the most wholesome of programming but what can I say I'm addicted. YES, I do have to turn my head sometimes because I am a prude at heart) So because Monday was a holiday her husband and kids came over too to hang with my husband and kids. So even though we had to pause the show a couple of times because the kids kept coming into the room it was fun.

Monday was what i like to call "day of laze" we just couldn't seem to get off the couch.

Monday evening was a blast and that is where the photos from above were taken. One of my BFF's (she's in the picture with me) managed to secure my family a coveted invite to her Aunt's annual 4th of July barbecue. Her Aunt is this really nice lady who is married to this really nice man and they live in this incredibly nice house on the water with an incredibly gorgeous view of the intercoastal. They served incredibly good food (they even had hired servers at this party WHAT, WOW, how fancy is that) They had a hired DJ who did Karaoke (you know Sydnee and I had to get up there and sing our famous rendition of "Cowboy Take Me Away") and then they had their own fireworks display in addition to the commercial one's that we had an incredible view of from their most incredible back yard and private dock. We had a wonderful time!!!! (Thanks again Karen for letting us pretend we are part of your family again maybe if we can convince Sydnee and Trevor that they really are suppose to get married we won't have to pretend... LOL )

Oh yes that's another photo of Sydnee and Trevor for that wedding slideshow... LOL
