Did you have a nice 4th of July holiday?
I had all four days off. Thursday to Sunday.
Monday is going to be a bitch going back to work.
We were supposed to go out-of-town, but decided not to. While I am sad we didn’t, I am also glad because it is a lot of work to get ready to go and then unpack when we get home.
We had a great weekend right here at home.
Obviously this was not Ian’s first 4th of July, nor was it his first experience seeing fireworks, but it was his first time doing fireworks himself.
(Please excuse the brown patch in my mom’s grass, it was from the slip n’ slide)
He did sparklers at my mom’s house with his cousins and after dark we set off some fountains at home. He had a great time.
It was Baby Sid’s first 4th, but he didn’t partake in the fireworks. He liked watching his cousins, but was in bed before we did the ones at home.
Because I had made this months menu plan ahead of time I was able to do my shopping on Saturday night.
Yep. Saturday night. I really know how to have a good time. Kids in bed and I am at the grocery store.
Menu Plan 7/8-7/14
Mon: French Dip Sandwiches (From leftover Sunday roast)

Hopefully it won’t be too hot to cook this week.
