Shortly after work on Thursday we left for Small Town USA to visit with KC's family who have everyone over for the 4th (like 30 adults and 70 billion children... in one house).
On the 4th we went to the next town over for a 'big parade' which was a lot of fun for the kids and hot as balls for the adults who were stupid enough to wear jeans.
Good thing is all the kids gave me some of their candy. Winning.
My tank top is from forever 21. Perfect for all the food and beer I consumed.
My brother in law has been living in NC for the past 5 or so years and recently moved back and everyone is super happy to have him home.
|seriously, isn't her smile the weirdest / cutest thing ever?|
|'sup really weird and fake Goofy.|
KC's cousin recently had a baby boy (one month old) and he is the cutest little guy. Of course I stole him for the majority of the weekend.
The next day we bbq'd, had naps and the kids threatened us with water balloons. We left all the oldies and the youngens that night and went out to the local bar.. there's only one. We sat around and chatted and told embarrassing drunk stories. Lots of beer was consumed.
More cuddles before we had to leave on Sunday. See that diaper? Yep, I changed that - my first diaper. It was not fun. Props to all you boy mamas. Thankfully he didn't get me!
On the drive home we stopped by Chester, IL which is the home of Popeye, apparently.
Pride & Prejudice Tee!! My fave. Old Navy jeans (that are on sale for stupid $20, are you kidding?! gah).
The boys were clearly all about being in a photo.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend celebrating a pretty ok country!
*just a joke! obviously I think this country is more than 'pretty ok' otherwise I wouldn't live here.
And just for funsies, throwback to 4th of July 2 years ago.
Now for the part you've been waiting for, I'm sure! I am super happy to be a part of this link up. I may have told some of you there was no theme, my bad! The theme is '4th of July' but please link up (if you want to!) regardless of whatever you post today or the rest of the week. We'd love to have you!
Thank you again to the lovely Kels for asking me to co-host, she's too sweet and if you don't know her - you should! Don't forget to click around to make some new friends and whatnot.
