The 4th of July has come and gone so quickly this year. It always seems to me like the middle of the year and as soon as it is gone everything starts happening.. School starts, Birthdays(seems everyone is a fall baby) Anniversaries(we know 3 other couples all married on our Anniversary, Oct 13th) The Beach house, Halloween, More birthdays, Thanksgiving and the grand finale.. CHRISTMAS!!!
Some people start counting down to Christmas starting after Thanksgiving... not I. I start after July 4th!!!! It is as you know the greatest time of year. The sweater weather, Decorations, Lights, Christmas trees, the Smell of Christmas( you know what I am talking about) Cheerful children singing Christmas Carols and learning about the birth of Christ.
It all gives me that warm fuzzy feeling and I am counting down the days.. 172 days and counting!!!

Ok so enough of the Christmas talk, lets get down to what we did for the weekend.

Friday Dustin was off.. YAy. Kids woke up at 6:30 their normal time so I didnt get to sleep in. No biggy.
We all relaxed in the morning, Adults drank their coffee, Kids asked a million times to "Schmell" the coffee.
We headed to Target to get me some much needed shorts and something fun.
When we got home we did lunch and put the kiddos down for a nap.
Meanwhile the adults(dustin and I) got ready and started making Enchiladas to bring to the party we were attending.

The kids were up by 2:30 and we were out the door by 3. We made a quick stop off at Dustins parents house in Conroe since we hadnt seen them in ages. Then it was off to The woodlands to the 4th annual 4th of July bash.

4 years ago this was Jakobs first party. He was only 5 weeks old. What a trooper.
We missed a couple years in between but were able to make it this year, Family in tow.

We got there around 5:00. We were greeted by friends whom we havent seen in forever. Most of which live in the Dallas area.
The kids had a grand ole time, Even the dog had a good time!!
Jakob fixated himself on our friend Sarah. It was cute.. he was following her everywhere.

Such a big girl!!
She carried this ball all night!!

On daddys shoulders

My new 'do...

the fam.. would have been perfect if Kate was looking..
Sarah and Jakob

Sweet Kaiser!!

We got home at 11pm friday night and put the kids in their beds. We stayed up a little while to watch some of the neighbors fireworks and then we passed smooth out. It was a great time!! I loved seeing everyone...

I will write about the rest of the weekend later.. when I dont have children running around like crazy people and a dog nipping at their heels.

Poor Jakob has a hole in his heart and he has filled it with Sarah.
It looks like you had a good time.

Can you blame Jakob??? Let's just say he has good taste in the gals already. As for anniversaries...ours is Oct 12th! It seems to be a popular time for weddings. You guys looked like you had a fun time at the party and it is always great to see old friends...certainly understand that one!
