Weekend Wrap-Up, Late Edition

Better late than never, right?

We had a pretty fun weekend, starting with Friday. John was off, and since Andrew was so good entertaining himself while I slept and all of the other kids were at their Dad's, we decided to treat him to a special day.
First, we took him to see Night at the Museum II, which he really liked.
Then we took him out for Chinese food for lunch.
Next, we took him to get his hair cut in the style that he's been wanting......




.....the mohawk! It looks so cute. Next time he'll go a little shorter on the sides, but he was a little cautious the first time around. (we colored it red for the 4th of July!)
We finished the night by ordering his favorite food for dinner, pizza, and watching movies.

Saturday morning, I picked up my kids from their Dad, and at noon we went to the big 4th of July celebration. My friend & her daughter came along too. The kids had a blast, jumping in bounce houses, sliding down water slides, and just running around being silly. The adults walked home a few times to suck down some adult beverages, so we had a pretty good time ourselves! We ran into a lot of people we knew. The fireworks were really awesome. My niece and her boyfriend came for the fireworks, as well as 2 more of our friends and their baby son.
When that was over, we went home and did a few of our own little fireworks, sparklers, poppers, etc. Then we finally hit the bed!

Sunday we went to my parents' house for a cook-out, but my dad refused to cook out because it was hot. So, we cooked in. Tim had to work at 4pm so we didn't stay long, which turned out to be a GOOD THING. (See blog post below.) The rest of the evening was spent chilling on the front porch and talking. My friend made tuna pie for dinner, which is one of those dishes that sounds weird but tastes SO good.
Speaking of yummy recipes...for last night's dinner I made Mini Cheesy Salsa Meatloaves from A Southern Fairytale blog...they were a HUGE hit with my whole family, plus my friend and her daughter. You've got to try them- they're delicious! And super-easy.


Hope y'all have a great week!
