It started with a two day yard sale, a mild case of heat exashtion, fireworks, and then a visit from the in-laws.
And its only half over!

Went on a picnic,
Had an honest-to-goodness water ballon fight, where I may or may not have had a temper tantrum when Keith threw one at my back side.. but who knows really?

Over all, the weekend went over quite well, which means, bickering, sweating, forgetting things, but over all having a good time, and making memories - because that is what really matters!
