Our Fourth of July Weekend

We had a busy weekend- lots of Fourth of July fun.

Rachel started the weekend off on Friday night with a "movie party" at our friends' house. They live near us and have a beautiful home- complete with a movie room! My friend, Naomi, is THE hostess of all time. She always has a wonderful spread of food and drinks, lots of fun activities for the kids and is so relaxed about it all. I love going to her house! All the kids, I think about fifteen in all, watched a movie and ate tons of popcorn and candy. It was a lot of fun.

Then Saturday, I went to a good-bye luncheon for a friend of mine from MOMS Club. It was at Mimi's Cafe- the best food and it was nice to sit and chat with all my friends. When I got home, Rachel and I went to our neighborhood pool for awhile. All of her swimming lessons are finally starting to pay off!

We came home and had a litte get together with some friends of Raphael's from work.

Here is Rebecca in her "american sweetie" outfit. So cute, but she didn't want to look at the camera.

Sunday, we went to church and then later in the day went to our friends' house-Gregg and Ashley for dinner and fireworks. Gregg grilled up some steaks and Ashley had tons of good sides too.The girls all played really well together. I took Rebecca's little pop-up travel bed and she was asleep before the fireworks show began.

Raphael and Gregg lighting up the noisemakers. I am always worried that someone is going to catch on fire or lose a finger, but no injuries occurred!

Rachel with a sparkler- she wasn't quite sure what to do with it. The neighborhood had tons of fireworks going on, so we sat outside and watched for a long time. Thankfully, Rebecca slept through it all.

Then today, we all went to the waterpark for some swimming fun! It was a busy, but good weekend.
