The 4th of July Weekend

What a weekend!

My brother Brian and his wife Emily came to visit for the long weekend. It had been since Easter that they have seen Jackson, so you can imagine how much the baby has changed. He's bigger, smarter, even cuter and alot more fun!

Our poor peanut had a fever on Friday, so he wasn't himself at all. That didn't make visiting with his aunt and uncle very relaxing. But thankfully, he was back to his smiley self on Saturday.

My parents came over on Saturday to join our festivities.
Jackson always loves the attention from Grandma and Papa!

We had a front row seat for our neighbor's firework show.

Paul was able to enjoy the weekend outside with the baby for some much deserved sunshine!

And of course - momma couldn't put her camera down!

Love this one!
We are so thankful that God allows to live in a country were we have freedom to praise his Name proudly and unashamed. We are blessed to have such wonderful family and friends to surround ourselves with on the holidays.
"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ." - Ephesians 5:20

I didn't get to see any fireworks at all over the weekend. :( I just heard out neighbors setting some little ones off. I did take a nap though! :)

Yay for family time!
