Our Happy 4th

Happy Independence Day! So thankful for our freedom and for all who serves our country to protect that freedom! I have always loved 4th of July and all that comes with it, including celebrating my birthday typically even though my birthday isn't until the day after. Why not kill two birds with one stone, right? Our festive holiday weekend kicked off with taking the boat out for it's first test run. It has been in the shop for repairs since March (long story. ugh.) so we were so to get it out on the water for the holiday! We took it pretty easy since it was the first time of the season.

Then on Sunday, we went to church and then celebrated my birthday with family for the rest of the day! So blessed to have wonderful family! We ate pizza, cake, and ice cream, and swam and played water volleyball!! So fun!

We ended the holiday weekend with more time at the lake with more boating and a cookout! It was such a fun and perfect day! Everyone had a great time and it wasn't too hot. Ella Jae had a great time drinking the lake water and eating the clay ha.....geez....she puts everything in her mouth even before I have time to react ha! She fell asleep on the boat twice which totally amazed me because she WILL NOT sleep in the car, but she fell asleep before we even got out of the wake zone ha! She was just too precious! She hated her life jacket on Saturday but we got her a new one and she didn't seem to mind it today, thank goodness! It even acted as a pillow when she slept so that was great! She is really getting to be such a 'go with the flow' kind of girl which makes life so much easier!

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday as much as we did! Back to the weekly grind tomorrow, but it is my birthday so that is something to look forward night at Bonefish with my handsome hubby!!
