How lucky are we to be able to have friends & family visit over the July 4th weekend. Not only did we have the kids (daughter & grandchildren) as well as Toldeo friends (Mark & Nancy Beelman) here earlier in the week, but we also had a visit from DH's nephew Kevin & girlfriend Connie to celebrate & cookout on the 4th of July!! The last time Kevin & Connie came to visit, they helped us bring in the New Year. I sure hope they don't wait for another 6 months before coming to visit again!!
I introduced Connie to Stamping & Card Making on their last visit so of course we spent a little time together in my craftroom playing with paper & ink on this visit. She's a "natural" and I'm afraid I've created a Monster!! LOL!!
Since Kevin & Connie were here ... and we made TONS of food (steak kabobs, chicken kabobs, corn on the cob, potato salad, fruit salad, Bush's grillin' beans, mushrooms & zucchini to grill) ... I decided to invite the couple across the way (Travis & Christie) to join in on the festivities. They are around the same age as Kevin & Connie so I just knew they'd hit it off!! Besides ... they were home all alone and had to eat ... needless to say, we had plenty to go around.
After dinner the conversation got around to some of the latest movies and since both couples are HUGE movie goers (and the "old folks" are not), Travis ran back over to his house and brought back a whole bag full of Blue-Ray movies to pick from. The final decision (since K & C had seen most of them) turned out to be "Matrix". Talk about a NOISEY evening ... between the sarround sound system on our TV and all the fireworks going off around the neighborhood ... Yikes!!! But it sure was nice to share the evening with more friends & family!!
I'm afraid to say that I don't think we'll be having more visitors anytime soon. It was a little rough on Mark (as you can see) and today he's not feeling very well and has spent most of the day in bed. Hopefully he'll recouperate and be more "chipper" tomorrow.
I can only hope that you all enjoyed your Independence Day weekend as much as I did!! God Bless You All and thanks for stopping by!!
