4th of July Weekend

We had a very busy weekend. My sister, Ruby, came in from Loveland on Thursday. Kaiden and Nathan came to visit and play on Friday. He also had a cooking lesson watching Aunt Ruby making cabbage rolls - yum! My friend, Fayette, was here from Florida visiting her son and came by on Friday afternoon with her granddaughter. We were so busy talking that I didn't take any pictures! We had a great time.
On the 4th, my sister, Millie, came over from Ft. Lupton for the day. We took a picnic to the church which is across the street from our town's firework's display. It was touch and go if the weather was going to cooperate - there were a couple pretty good rains and it was pretty chilly, but the show did go on and it was so beautiful.
Grandpa Jerry was here from Boston. Kaiden stared at the bright lights but didn't quiet make it to the end of the show before he fell asleep. It was a very busy and wonderful weekend. Hope yours was too.

Sounds like a great time (o: Ours was kind of the same. Did you live in Fort Lupton? I have had family connections there. I grew up in Firestone, so not that far away.

Loved seeing all the family photos.
Are you tired of all the rain and thunder storms yet? I am and it is only my second summer here. I don't mind them, in fact enjoy them, occasionally but they terrify my dogs so I'm happy when the season is over.
Have a wonderful week.
