One of my goals was to blog more for myself and to record memories and not just my thoughts. So that will apply for this post. I love recording the details of our lives and looking back to read them throughout the year(s), even if they are a bit boring.
Our 4th of July weekend started on Friday. Right now I LOVE Fridays because both Luke and I are home together, except this Friday I had to go into my office for a couple of hours so Luke and Eli stayed home while I ran to work to take care of some stuff.
I got home mid afternoon and then we ran some errands and then picked up Mexican food (I was craving it so badly) to eat at home and watched Friday Night Lights on TV.
Sidenote: I'm not sure I've blogged about my love for Friday Night Lights but I will be doing it soon as next week is the last episode ever. Seriously I will cry. I already cried watching a preview for the last episode ever. I cannot adequately explain my love for this show.
Saturday we really didn't do much but hung out around the house. Luke had to work for a bit in the morning so Eli and I hung out and cleaned and watched some TV. It was a calm day.
Sunday after church we spent the day with my family celebrating the 4th of July a day early.
The three of us on the 3rd of July:
Thankfully we were celebrating America's independence so Luke couldn't wear his England shirt that he has worn in every other picture. God Bless America.
Eli put his feet in the pool water for the first time. He was a bit indifferent about it.
One cool dude: Too bad his mom broke his sunglasses. He still looks cool though.
My favorite picture from the weekend:
Eli and I with my youngest sister:
It was such a great day with my family. I love days like that!
Monday (today) we had planned to go to our town's parade but Eli was still sleeping soundly this morning and we saw it as an opportunity to sleep in.
So sleep in we did.
Then we got up and Luke made us waffles and scrambled eggs. It was wonderful.
Later that afternoon we went to a friend's house and enjoyed the evening with some friends from church. It was such an enjoyable and relaxing time.
My red, white and blue family:
The best pic of Eli in his outfit before a blowout diaper occurred:
Eli hung out in the Baby Bjorn for awhile. We were all a fan of it.
I was just snapping away on my camera and didn't even realize Luke's face in this picture until I looked at it on my computer:
Obviously, Luke is not a fan of the camera.
Obviously, I am not a fan of him wearing the same shirt EVERY TIME I TAKE A PICTURE.
Life goes on.
So that was our weekend. I'm sad to see the weekend end. I enjoyed every minute of this one.
Happy 4th of July!
