The Long Weekend!

We have a couple of floating holidays each year....this year's was July 5th, so we had a 4 day weekend for the 4th!  It was soooo nice.  Daycare was closed that week, so my parents came in to watch the boys while we worked the short week.  The day they flew in, I felt bad, but I headed out that night for a Girl's Night Out.  It was fun to get to know some ladies I have met at church.  Working from home in a new town can be lonely, so it was nice to get out with some girls!

My parents went home Thursday and we went to some friend's house for a casual BBQ and some fireworks!  The boys stayed up way later than expected but they both really enjoyed the fireworks!  The rest of the weekend was just fun...nothing we had to do.  We had probably 2 weeks straight with rain.  We had talked to Connor about going camping on Wednesday night, but the rain ruined that plan.  He was a disappointed little boy!  Thankfully it looked fairly clear on Friday night, so Connor and I braved it.  He loved it and there was only a few sprinkles overnight. We were in the front yard, so if it got too bad, we could go inside!

We tried going hiking Saturday afternoon at a place about 30 minutes away that is supposed to have some of the prettiest waterfalls on the east coast.  Apparently, many other people had the same idea, though!  It was packed, so we just called it a pretty drive and turned around!  Probably for the better because I am not sure how well the boys would have done...may be a Mom and Dad trip sometime when we have grandparents in town to watch the boys!
