Over the Weekend

What did your weekend look like?  Did you go, go, go?  Did you take it easy?  Did you have family time and watch fireworks?

On Friday we took the girls miniature golfing.  We played 18 holes.  The sun was in and out of the clouds.  When it was out it was hotter than blazes.  When it was in the clouds it was nice!  The girls did awesome!  They got a little frustrated here and there but I think it was the heat.  Both said it was fun when we got done.  That is always a good sign! ;D

Saturday we did our annual subdivision parade and pool party festivities.  Every year our subdivision has a parade up the main street.  Everyone can join in.  Kids usually bring bikes but we've seen scooters and Barbie jeeps and wagons, dogs and everything in between decorated in red, white and blue.  We march up to the end of the road and finish at the rec center where we partake of sandwiches and chips.  The pool opens with lots of games and competitions.  It is a nice thing to do as a community.

We ended the evening with the local fireworks.  I did not think they were going to happen because it rained and rained all afternoon and evening.  Then about 8pm it stopped and we ventured forth to see what was going to happen.  Sure enough it cleared enough for them to shoot them off! ;D

Sunday night we had our own mini display in our cul-de-sac with the fireworks Corey and the girls bought.

I also wanted to add the layout I did of the hike we did in Hidden Mesa the other night.  Been on a roll with getting the layouts done!
