4th of July Weekend

We had a great 4th of July weekend! My family and Chris’ family came to visit us and it was so nice spending time with them all. My parents arrived on Friday night and we went over to my cousin’s house to see her and her husband, and their 3 kids before they left to go out of town for the weekend. Then on Saturday Chris’ family arrived, and we all had fun hanging out at our house, going to eat lunch at Matt’s, and heading to NorthPark mall to walk around and try to stay cool. It was so HOT!  That evening Chris and I (but mostly Chris) made a BBQ pork shoulder roast along with some yummy appetizers and sides and we all had a nice dinner.  As usual I failed miserably at taking pictures because a) I was busy hosting and b) whenever I am around Chris’ family I forget to take pictures because they all have their cameras out so I don’t want to hassle with getting mine out too. So I don’t really have any pictures from Saturday or of my parents :( but if you hop on over to my SIL or MIL’s blogs you will see some great ones. And Chris did manage to get one with Harper and I being silly. She looks super cute, me, not so much. Ha!

On Sunday my parents headed back home and that evening we went over to Chris’ Aunt Kathy and Uncle Tom’s house for dinner. They had prepared another wonderful meal for us all, and it was fun seeing Kathy and Tom, Chris and Kelly’s cousins, Molly and Jackson, and his grandma Shirley. This time we managed to get a full family picture that turned out cute!

We really enjoyed seeing everyone even though it is always too quick of a trip.



One of the other highlights of the weekend was that we got to show off our redone bathroom to our families and my parents even got to be the first to use it! We literally put the finishing touches on it the day before they all arrived!  Here are some before and after pics.









So overall we are pleased with the end result, because our old bathroom was looking pretty dated as you can see.


We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend and I hope you did as well!
