Weekend Fun!

 The 4th of July weekend this year was very eventful, we partied all weekend! Saturday all my nieces came over and we had the best water day you could have with out a real pool. We were slip and sliding, having water fights, and best of all just had a really good time as a family. I love my nieces and nephew so much! Sadly Vanessa and Jon and baby Isaiah could not be with us this weekend they were with Jon's family but we still had a great time!

I can't believe how big all of my nieces are getting, it's sad how fast they are growing up but it is so fun to watch them go through all these different stages in life. 

After a fun day in the sun, we headed off to the Brophy cabin for the night. The Brophy's are so kind and always have an open door, I am glad they let Trev and I come and barge in on their family affair. The cabin was beautiful they have done such a great job. It is in such a great location about 30 mins from Strawberry Resevior. The best part is all the dogs are welcome at the cabin! There were 6 dogs up there, and I got to see my 2 nephews Oscy and Lenny! We had a fun time 4-wheeling and exploring and just being able to hang out and chat with everyone! It doesn't matter what you do with the Brophy's you know its going to be a good time! I love them all so much!

Then it was off to more firework and Murray park. Our cousins have made it tradition to go there every year. We had a bbq then stayed for firework. It wasn't the most amazing firework show but at least we had the opportunity to see some fireworks. I love living in the country and I am proud to me and American!!!

After having a short work week because of the holiday it felt like this weekend came so fast! Mal hosted a glitter toe party mid-week and before I knew it the weekend was here!

We celebrated Mads birthday dinner friday night! It was great that Erin could be in town for all of these fun times, but we missed Kels!

Then to end the weekend we had Erin's baby shower. She is having a baby boy that they will be naming Liam ( I love all of Erin's baby names)!
Mal put a lot of work into the shower and that is why it turned out so cute! I like being the one to put the work into having it my house and everyone else can do the work of making it cute that isn't my strong point. But all the girls helped out making yummy desserts and Mads had the idea of this cute clothes line! It was a lot of fun to be with all of our friends and celebrate such a fun time in Erin's life. It's crazy to think that one day I will be having bridal and baby shower for myself. I am so use to helping throw them for everyone else I forgot that I am suppose to get around to it too someday... silly me I better start working on one of those.

I am so blessed, I love my family and friends so much. Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in life and let it bring you down. Sometimes I start to feel sorry for myself and it's good to take a step back and truly count your blessing. I have nothing to complain about and I hope that I can be more grateful for everything I have and always remember how lucky I am to have all these people that I love and care about and they may even love me a little too :).  I hope everyone is having a great summer and keep up the fun, before we know it winter will be here ...... so go on vacation and stay out in the sun too long!

Love ya!
