God Bless America!!!
We had such a fun day and celebrated just the way you're supposed to. Cord got up and left at normal time, 7:00am, to go surfing...even after being stung the day before by a sting ray! Go figure. I woke up around 8:00...because that's when Avery woke me up. We hung out for a little while, had breakfast and coffee, and then went up to get ready for our big day of fun. Jeff, Mel and the girls were coming over and we were going to head out to the pool then BBQ. We had all the typical 4th foods...ranch dip with carrots, onion dip with ruffles, hot dogs, pasta salad, corn on the cob, baked beans, oh and brownie's with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert! Anyone who knows me, knows it's not a party unless you have dessert. Oh and don't forget the liquid favorites...maggie-ritas, beer, wine...you get the picture! The pool was fun...Adyson is still a little unsure of it so we're going to start her in swim lessons soon! Avery, on the other hand, LOVED it! We couldn't keep her out of it! We had a great day...spending it with family and just relaxing. After all, that's what living in this country is about...being thankful for all that you have. God Bless!!
Jeff & Rylie and Melanie, Rylie and T!!
