Fourth of July {Take One}

Yesterday was such a wonderful day.
I spent the Fourth of July celebrating with my dear friend, Holly & her family.
Every year, Aaron & I are invited to this big cookout her parents host annually but
every year we are usually out of town. That being said, the 4th fell on a Wednesday
therefore we had no plans {until the weekend to follow}.

Our dear friend, Nathan is moving out of State on Friday so Aaron actually spent most of the day with him soaking up the sun {in sweat} fishing here & there.  I headed over to the gathering early before his arrival.

Mattie & Kendal {Holly's girls} being just as cute as ever!

Boy was it HOTT!
Seriously, I'm not used to it. I sweat worse than the average girl {gross} - it did not take
much for ALL of us to be drenched in sweat. We played multiple games
of cornhole, in which I was totally off my game. Our last tournament I was partnered up with Holly's Dad, in which he is REALLY good - I was so nervous. We ended up
hanging in there for a very long time, playing game after game but did not do good enough to win. It was still fun.

&& Eventually I went to pick my better half up to where he could
enjoy all the socializing & CH tourneys.

watching the action from afar.

We had a wonderful time over at the Raulersons sharing this
holiday && to end the night, Mr. Lawrence gave us a beautiful loud firework show.
It was such a wonderful day & I was so happy to have finally spend it
with Holly & her family.

I did not even pull my camera out - ugh! I'm slacking now a days.
Thank goodness for camera phones!

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July celebrating our
countries Independence! We have one more round of celebrating this Saturday with our family & more friends! Maybe I'll do better with taking pictures!
