Happy 4th of July

There will be plenty of posts from this long holiday weekend!! :)

My holiday weekend started off early because I had Thursday off!! Phew, it was so nice to begin the relaxing early! I went out to my parents on Thursday to visit with them. We went to dinner and did a quick run at the grocery store to get a few items for the 4th of July cookout Lisa and Ben were having at their place.

On Friday Dad and I went over to Grandma's (at the lake) to visit her before we headed up to Lisa and Ben's for the day. We had to go over early because Chippewa Lake has a parade for the holiday and they close the road and you can't get out until it's over! So while we were visiting her we asked her if she wanted to go to Lisa and Ben's for the day and she said she didn't have anything else planned so she decided to come along. She had never been able to make the trip up to their place in the almost 2 years they have been their so it was nice that she could do that.

We got to their place and sat around outside just talking and enjoying the nice weather. Ben fired up the grill and we had plenty to eat. Good burgers, hotdogs, potatoes, veggies, corn on the cob, etc. They even treated us to some good vanilla ice cream and strawberries for dessert! MMM!!

Here are some pictures from the 4th!! Hope everyone had a great holiday with their families and friends! We are truly blessed to live in the country we live in!

We used the same good ole grill on the 4th as well! It was great hanging out with family and friends... if Manda, Chad and Brynn were home that would have taken the cake! Glad to hear it you had a good weekend!
