I just love it when a holiday falls on a weekend.
The Fourth of July on Saturday made for a three day weekend full of festivities, family and fun.
Friday was blueberry muffins, errands and loads of family time with Russ’ sister and her kiddos. They only live an hour away but since both of us keep busy schedules we don’t often see each other. It is always so good when we do and the cousins have a good time playing together too.
We ate way to much food including “Lemon” Squash pie. I never imagined having squash pie but it was fantastic. Russ’ sister is also a great person for me to talk to about home school, gardens, canning and yogurt making. Aah the domestic life :).
Later that eve we headed to another Blasters game. Russ and I had the chance to go on opening night but this was the first time we were able to take the girls.
We scored some awesome seats in a box since Russ’ job is a sponsor. It was perfect, the girls were able to enjoy the game when they wanted too but weren’t confined to having to sit in the crowd.
We had a great time and hope to catch another game in the near future.
The rest of the day was spent napping, eating, shopping and playing.
The past few years the Fourth of July has definitely made it’s way up my list of favorite holidays. It just feels like the peak of all things summer.
We were so blessed to have such a great weekend together this year with lots of family time.
How was your Fourth?
