Fourth of July Weekend

Happy Belated Fourth of July to everyone.

Fourth of July we went to the parade. It was wonderful weather - not too hot with a little bit of wind. We sat on the opposite side of the street than we usually sit and it was wonderful there. The girls got tons of candy. The kids (mine and others) stayed in their areas and even took candy to other kids. It really was nice that there wasn't anyone snatching candy away from other kids. Then we went to my parents house for a picnic. Lots of good food. Then we left from there and went shopping at the Lighthouse Mall with Noel, Jill, and the kids. Brooke got new clothes, but Melodye did not. Melodye was too busy playing with Nonnie to look at clothes. So she lost out. Oh well, it's not like she is needing any clothes. The girls and I each got a new pair of Crocs. I love when I can actually find comfortable shoes in my size (12)! Then we came home and crashed.

Fifth of July we went to Great America with Noel, Jill, and the kids. We had a blast. Nonnie and Melodye went on their first real roller coaster. It was nice having a day out like that and no fighting. I think we all needed a break. Nonnie and Maddy ended up staying the night with us.

Sixth of July we went to the inlaws house for a picnic. Such a beautiful day for it. We have been so lucky weather wise. We had so much fun. The time just flew while we were there. The kids played with baby dolls, bubbles, and of course everyone played the bean bag game. This side of the family have to play the bean bag game anytime it is nice out and we are together. :)

I don't have any pictures because I haven't taken them off the camera yet. Maybe tomorrow.
