Independence Day 2010

Happy 4th of July!

This weekend is one of the only weekends that we'll be home by ourselves this summer :) For the rest of the summer we've got trips planned and friends coming in to stay for the weekend so we made the most of our time this weekend.

Ryan was outside planning out our patio - getting the sand level and determining the placement of the patio pavers that we have. He also put up our big American flag outside the house today and put the small ones all along the walk for 4th of July. I was inside painting our laundry room walls so that we could redo and finish the laundry room. We pulled up the carpet, took out the blinds, knocked out the lower cabinet and prepped the walls for painting. Ryan stained the floor and replaced the baseboards. Next I'll get some cute rugs and window treatments and the laundry room will be complete :)

After I finished painting on Saturday, we took the kids to a new location to go and see our local fireworks show. We sat on the side of a major road near the Kroger and watched fireworks from the nearby baseball park. After fireworks the kids popped their poppers and then it was time for bed!

Happy 4th of July everyone!
