Celebrating with Family

We actually celebrated the Fourth of July a couple of days early with family in my hometown.  We only live about an hour away from my hometown, but I don't go home as much as I would like.  So I'm always excited when I do.

The older I get, the more I appreciate homes with porches and swings.  Like the one at my aunt's -- so nice and  relaxing...

There was a kiddie pool in the backyard, and the kids had a blast.

Aunt Debra, the hostess.

The first picture in this post was a packet of games my aunt put together for the adults -- like word scrambles, word searches, etc. -- and we compete for prizes.  My family does this for every get-together, no matter the holiday, and it's always so fun.  She did one for the kids, too, and Morgan loved that!  She also made little goodybags for all the kids, and Morgan loved that, too (especially the lollipops)!

It was a great day!  I hope you all had a lovely holiday with your families!

Oh, let me tell you what I did:  DK and I had date night Sunday night.  We've seen all of the Transformers movies, so I felt the need to go see this one, too.  It was a 10:30 PM movie, and...let's just say I didn't make it. We had dinner before the movie, and I KNEW right after dinner that I'd be struggling through the movie.  These days I'm sleepy by 8:30!  I fell asleep probably 15 minutes into the movie and woke up 15 minutes before it ended.  Lame!  I remember the days of late night dinners and movies with no nodding off incidents.  Does this mean I'm old?  I'll just blame it on the late night dates I have with grad school work and the early wake up times required for jobs or moms of little ones (you pick one)!

Hope everyone's enjoying their week!
