4th of July Weekend!

We spent an extra long weekend back home with our families over the 4th. The weather was just about PERFECT - sunny, hot, and almost entirely free of rain! This meant we did a lot of boating, swimming, sitting on the deck, and playing in the yard, which was awesome.

Only a couple of pictures were taken at my family's cabin, but here is one of Mia and Grandpa Jon enjoying the morning out on the deck.

We enjoyed an extra dose of family time at David's parents' cabin, as his brother's family was there, too! Three kids on their side (7 1/2, 4, and 10 months!), plus Mia, meant that there was never a dull moment! Mia got to try out her cousin, Gavin's, floaty, which she LOVED and demanded that we buy her one immediately.

She then proceeded to show him how to play...

Blast off with Daddy!

Quick family pic!

Mia LOVED picking Grandma Vicki's flowers and putting them behind her ear!

Best photo with Grandma and Grandpa - next time: one camera so everyone is looking in the same direction!



All in all, it was a fantastic weekend. The best part, however, was having my parents' cabin to ourselves on Tuesday morning, after getting a full night's sleep (Mia had us averaging about 5 hrs each of the previous nights!). We enjoyed breakfast, coffee, and some reading and cartoon time before having to get ready and get on with our day. It was a much needed quiet end to a busy weekend! Hope all of your 4ths were just as much fun!

Piglet goes everywhere with her! Thank goodness we have two so that one can get a bath every now and then! ;)
