Theresa's Mixed Nuts: July 4th Fun

July 4th Fun

Did everyone have a nice Independence Day? My husband hasn't had a 3 day weekend in what seems like forever, so it was really nice having him home for the extra time. We ended up skipping all the  parties this year, and opted for a low-key holiday. We spent most of the day working on projects around the house, followed by fireworks at our downtown river walk. Celebrating with 4 of my favorite people, it was a perfect evening.

Saturday was spent at our state park having a picnic followed by trail hiking. Of course, it wouldn't be a real Independence Day party without a  little watermelon eating contest. I think the little one won.



All in all, a very fun and relaxing weekend!

How did you spend 4th of July?

  2. We kept it low key this year, too. That watermelon eating contest looks like fun. I have never done one, but now I kind of want to.

    1. *blush* I NEVER take selfies. Only when I have a funny hat on, because I love them so. I think I read somewhere that people who take them often are linked with mental disorders and narcissism. 2 things I certainly don't want to be linked with lol.

    2. we all have mental disorders, dear, don't worry about it :))
      And now go on and put this miss pageant photo as your profile pic :)

    1. It's so funny, my family is all very similar looking. None of us can claim we were born into the wrong family because we all look so much alike!

    1. She may be little, but don't let that fool you. I am positive she eats double the food us adults do on a daily basis. She has a very high metabolism... lucky girl!

  10. Happy 4th of July! I'm quite a social animal but actually I love the quiet time spent with family the best :) So peaceful and I feel so blessed in their presence :) Most of the time holiday crowds drive me nuts haha

  11. You and your peeps are gorgeous, as are those fireworks.
    I had a good one, nothing too exciting. I was too tired to continue a road trip, so I stayed in a hotel and was able to watch fireworks from there.

  14. Oh -- glad you asked {cuz really nobody else on their blog's has asked} but it was a day of sleeping, napping, crying and more sleeping. I was in bed at 8:30 and I could hear the occasional booms and sizzles and bangs but I slept through the 4th. Dang cancer!

    Hey cute little group of celebrators you have here!!!

    {this new design is done, I'm loving this one now. You see it all has to jive {the favicon, the page tabs, the fonts all have to balanced and when I make changes it is because it isn't jiving, yet.} Thank you my friend for noticing. I feel more in control of my life now too, so that helps. lol ♥

    2. I bet not. That picture of you looks great.... but, you better keep using the face cream because those wrinkles sneak right up on you. I know..... EXPERIENCE!!

  19. I just stayed at home and relaxed with my cat. It was horrible weather here so the fireworks may be this weekend instead-in which case I will be home again.
