Our 4th of July Weekend...


Our weekend was perfect! We got to spend it with our friends and family, ate lots of delicious and fattening foods, saw pretty fireworks, and laughed alot!! It all started with my brother finally arriving home from Spain!! We hadn't seen him since last September and I was ready to see his face in the flesh not on a computer screen!


We hosted the first annual "Cox Fest" at our house. Since we have almost three acres we had several people camp out, enjoyed a bonfire, and stayed up into the wee hours of Sunday morning!




I had seen a news segment on planking this past week and couldn't stop talking about it. I decided to give it try myself...not as impressive as some of the planking I have seen, but of course I knew that it could be dangerous thanks to the news report!

Have any of you planked before?

Sunday we went up to our hometown to a bbq and fireworks fiesta! We were served so much delicous fried food. I had never heard of deep fried bacon before let me just tell you it is delicious!!! They also had homemade french fries, hush puppies, and fresh trout all fried to perfection for our taste buds!!



Kerry and I got special "Mickey" tshirts in honor of Becky, plus we just thought they were too funny to pass up!

I also got in lots of Oliver snuggles...



We even managed to have a little downtime until the next round of fireworks on Monday! I finished my book and started a new afghan!



It was all ended by cuddling on a blanket and enjoying the final fireworks for the holiday!



How was your 4th of July weekend?
XOXO
