4th of July Weekend Recap

This year was one of my favorite 4th of Julys. I took off work Thursday and Friday so we had an extra long weekend. We got to spend lots of time with friends and family and it was really nice to be together without anything we had to do. 

To kick off the holiday I made a Tripple Berry Pie complete with hand cut stars which is why they look a little wonky. 

On the morning of the 4th we met my friend Melissa and her boys at our pool. 

After a quick lunch back at home, we headed over to my sister's pool for swim #2. 

Despite already swimming for 6 hours, the boys were excited to head to J's aunt's house for dinner, fireworks, and even more pool time.

On Thursday everyone pitched in and we did a little bit of cleaning before spending a few hours at the library playing. Our library has a pretty cool rock activity where you check out a special book with a rock attached and then hide the rock in the community. You then post a clue with a picture of the rock on Instagram and other kids try to find it. The boys have really gotten into it and while Jack was in the bathtub Thursday night someone posted a clue. They were so excited to find the rock that Jack jumped out of the bathtub and didn't even want to get dressed...we compromised on pjs :)

Friday night we surprised the boys with Go Karts and Mini Golf. The place where we went completely revamped their space and added the Go Karts this Summer. Ben was tall enough to drive his own car so he was in heaven. And despite Jack needing a par of 23 on most of the holes, it was a really great night as a family. The boys still talk about how much fun they had. 

Saturday night the boys stayed with my MIL and J and I did an escape room with some of our friends. We made it out with a minute to spare so basically I'm a detective now. 

For dinner last night I made this one skillet meal which turned out pretty good considering how easy it was to make. 

And now Monday is here. Have a great week!
