Catching up

We had a great Fourth of July holiday.  I hope you enjoyed your day too.  My mother and I took the kids to the 4th of July Parade in town in the morning.  We ended up back at our house and the kids had fun swimming in the afternoon.  That evening we took the 3 older kids to see the town fireworks display.  The 2 littles stayed home with Daddy.  They were tired and don't like the loud noises.

This week I had a couple of really quiet days because ALL of my kids went to stay with Grandparents!  This rarely if ever happens.  They were split between two sets of grandparents.  Two of the kids came home today but the other 3 are still gone!!  Crazy! ha

I did find time to make a card and a layout but I haven't taken photographs of them to share.  Soon.

Tomorrow is my hubby's birthday and we are having a party for him here at the house with a cookout and swimming in the pool if the weather cooperates.  Today he found an old stereo that he just had to have that has a working 8 track player.  He is now on the hunt for 8 tracks!!  lol  Anyone have any they want to send to him??!! LOL

Hope you are having a great weekend!
