Happy Fourth of July!

This is how I found Monkey and Hannah this morning. Isn't it adorable!! :)

We stayed home this year, and just relaxed. We bought a new bbq at Walmart and came home to grill and set off small fireworks in the backyard. Fireworks are illegal in our city, but in some nearby cities they are legal. Everyone here does them anyway, but we only do small ones. Our neighbors put on quite the show for us so it is okay. :)

While The Hubs was bbq'ing, I cleaned out the swingset. Monkey hasn't played on it in a while and it was covered in spider webs and just dirty. Peanut's swing was filthy. After it was cleaned off (and numerous black widows were killed! Yikes) the kids had a blast on it. :) I know it looks sad in the pictures, but I am going to get some paint this week and fix it up.

My sister and her husband came over also. The adults watched Shutter Island, which was a great movie! I thought it was going to be totally different than it was, and WOW it was good!

Peanut was asleep and in bed before we started the fireworks, she doesn't like loud noises at all. I hope you all had a good Fourth!

Sounds like a relaxing and fun 4th of July! Very similiar to our day as well! Peanut looks so cute in her swing! And, Gavin would agree with her about the loud noises! Hugs!!!

Sounds much like ours,relaxing.A nice change of pace from the crazy other day to day stuff.

Love seeing Peanut in her swing.Second little buddy of ours that I checked on today,enjoying the great outdoors in their swing.

As for your question:Just moving a few miles away.More space.As Zoey is growing,her needs are and will become more significant,mostly based on her size,although small now,won't always be that way,The new place has a bedroom downstairs,which one day I think will be handy.There is room to hang a swing for her outside and a playroom too.All around,a good choice at this point,for all of us.It is the actually MOVING that has be in denial at this moment ..

Happy Monday ..

Yikes on the black widows! We took it easy too and then saw the fireworks. Little buddy didn't go because he doesn't like loud noises either.

So awesome you had a great 4th of July. Some of the best times are spent at home, away from the crowds and chaos.

Love the pictures of Monkey with his pup and Peanut smiling on the swing!

Glad you had a great 4th!! Would love for you to visit whenever it works out. It's okay that you can't come this week as I am kind of hit and miss on when I will be there. I am fortunate enough to have some extra help this week. Just let me know when you want to come and hopefully I will be there.
