Fun Filled Holiday Weekend

I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July! I know we did. We spent the fourth playing in the sprinkler, eating cookies and just enjoying hanging out all together. Friday night, we went to our City Celebration and the kids did awesome! We didn't stay late b/c it was soooooo hot and their little faces were bright red, but we were there for over an hour. They got to get out of their stroller and stayed very close to us, which I was pretty impressed by. Usually, in public, they aren't allowed out of their stroller, b/c let's face it, we're outnumbered. I laid out a blanket and they did great, they sat for a little while, drank their juice, then they would get up and dance to the bands which was hilarious. These kids love music and love to dance. We had a great time!

The fam is going on a pretty big adventure this week. The kids and I are leaving early tomorrow morning to head to Tulsa. Jake is flying up Wednesday evening and then we are headed to Branson. We were going to drive straight there, but it's about eight hours and decided no one would be to pleasant upon arrival so were are breaking it up a little on the way there. Jake's parents have and RV up at Table Rock Lake and almost everyone is going up on Thursday to spend a long weekend. This will be the longest we are away, and the first time we aren't staying at one of our parent's houses. They have rented a house, so it should be alot of fun. Three of the four brothers will be there and seven of the ten grandchildren will be there. Did I mention that five of the seven grandchildren are under eighteen months! We are excited and it should be alot of fun! Wish us luck on the eight hour trip back home Sunday!

Here's some pics of my little American Cuties on the Fourth of July!
Happy Fourth of July!

Looks like you all had a great
4th! Branson is so much fun and hopefully a little cooler than Texas! Have LOTS of fun!

Totally heading up this way to God's country! If you should need a break about half way between Tulsa & Branson, you could always stop by for a potty/snack break. The kids would love to meet their blog friends! You will love Table Rock. We go there every summer and have a blast. Just don't go to "the swings" unless you want to feel like you are on a video of Girls Gone Wild! Branson is like a small Vegas for the elderly but you will LOVE LOVE LOVE all the outlet shops! Have fun!
