4th of July 2012

My favorite family photo we took.
This year Justin and I were kinda bummed we couldn't go anywhere and do anything for the 4th, however, it turned out better than we could have imagined.

It started out with Justin going golfing in the morning with some friends from work. Jo and I stayed home and hung out. While the hubby was golfing I texted him and let him know if his friends were free for hot dogs and watermelon we had more than enough. So after golf the men came back for lunch. It was so nice to meet some of Justin's work friends! I truly enjoyed myself (I love meeting new people, and I love being a hostess!) and Jonah had a great time too! He really liked one of the guys because he smiled a lot. And if you know Jonah, you know that if you smile, he smiles right back. So lets just say there was a LOT of smiling going on. :D

After the guys left, Justin and I ran to Sonic real quick (happy hour!) because we are never home during the week together. It was nice to get slushes together. Then Justin just had to go buy a firework. So we did, but I made him promise to water the lawn before we set it off.

When we got home the whole family took a nap. After naptime I tortured my men and made them take family photos for about 30 minutes, but I'm thrilled with the results! We got a few cute ones!

 For dinner we were kinda hot dogged out, so we did the American thing (que eye rolling) and got $1 hamburgers from Micky D's. Then Jo got a bath, and we set off the firework crazy early, like it wasn't even dark out yet, but we wanted Jo to see his first firework.... he LOVED it. I'm glad, I thought he'd be afraid of the noise.

The rest of the evening Justin and I sat on the porch and listen/watched the fireworks around us.

It was a laid back, but fun 4th.
