Fourth of July Weekend
We had a very low key 4th this year. Phil had to work most of the weekend up in Conway at a gun show but we were able to enjoy lots of fun in the sun. Friday and Saturday evening we spent time with the Mallett family and had lots of fun playing the neighbors pool. First night was a little weary on all the kiddos....they didn't know what to think of the water. But when it came down to Saturday...Ace was doing flips off the diving board :) Sunday we drove up to Conway and had a BBQ with some friends. Food was great, hospitality was EXCELLENT, and the kiddos got to enjoy another day in the pool. Monday we had a cookout with our FAVORITES....the King family. We also enjoy their company and love watching the kiddos play together. After dinner, we came home and had a little firework show of our own. Ashlyn was fast asleep, Ace LOVED the show, but poor Aidan was scared to death. Phil had to go inside get ear muffs for the boys and then Aidan ended up sitting in the truck watching the fireworks from afar. Hopefully next year he will be able to enjoy them more. We ended the night inside watching a big firework display on TV. Another wonderful weekend with my GREAT family.
