We had a blast!

Yesterday, I started my day out right with some festive oatmeal.  Blueberries, strawberries, and peaches.  The peaches were the closest thing I had to something white.

Hit the spot!

Yesterday afternoon, I did all kinds of prepping and cooking for the party that night at the Mann’s house.

There was some awesome food.  Mike was the grill master and he grilled up hamburgers and hot dogs.  Plus we had all kinds of salads, beans, green beans, chips, and a ton of fruit!

Courtney brought baby Carly to the party!  She was so adorable in her sweet red, white, and blue!  She never fussed or cried.  She may be the most content and happy baby I have ever seen!

It was a wonderful night full of fireworks and fun!  Luvy and I were drenched in sweat when we got in.  We immediately jumped into the shower.

Today I’m just getting everything ready for my dad to visit!!  He will be here tonight!  🙂

I’ve got that muffin recipe coming for you guys tomorrow!!  

How was your 4th??  What did you do?

Do you like fireworks?

  1. that looks like a great party! I love the watermelon stars. Can’t believe I didn’t have any watermelon yesterday! I did get to see fireworks though – after a great display I have nothing to complain about. 🙂

  2. Looks like so much fun! We watched fireworks with friends on the 3rd, so it wasn’t too bad to get some serious packing done last night. Moving is no fun!! 🙂

  3. Looks like you had a ton of fun! Everything looks awesome. Those watermelon stars are adorable. I didn’t do anything since I’m Canadian;)
