Here are some pics from a little cookout we had today at my grandma's. It was last minute but very nice! A wise woman (cough cough...Charla) once said "thank God for Bush's baked beans"! LoL!

Here's me, my AMAZING grandma & my little sister Amanda

Trying to pose with Shan but she thought it be more fun to pull my hair!
Two favorite things...MawMaw & Popcicles
Everyone enjoying a popcicle after a good meal!
Ok Ty enjoyed one to many but who's counting!

We had fun but of course I missed Matt. Cookouts are "our thing" but we'll have many many more cook outs soon enough! The kids & I are going to my mother in law's on Tuesday for fireworks! We can't wait...we love them. They have a huge firework display every 4th of July at Matt's old high school. It's a tradition we always go up there. Lay blankets down,have good snacks & Ewww & Awww over the fireworks! I become a little kid again:) I'll take some more pictures then to share. You know me & camera (courtesy of my sweet spoiling husband) can't go any where without it! Hope everyone had a nice weekend & hope you have an even better week!

I loved the pics. I still don't know if we're going to see fireworks front yard. It depends on how late we get back from the beach. I'm still working on your scarf. I hope to finish it soon. I'm sorry it has taken me so long; I've been so busy! hope you guys have a wonderful 4th. Love u lots, girl!

"I had fun but I missed Matt."

Oh, how many times a day do I say that sentence (not about Matt, obviously, but you know what I mean!). Fireworks. Picnics. Summer walks. Movie nights. Family gatherings.

Hey, but God is faithful to us. He has a really great land for us -- but we just have to travel long and hard to get there! When we get there together, let's celebrate!!
