4th of July Weekend Recap!

Woo! That was a busy yet enjoyable long weekend!
Thursday night after Michael got home from work, we decided to just relax since we knew it was going to be a busy weekend. My Mom and Greg came up Thursday night to stay for the weekend too!
Friday started out being productive doing some house work. Well... for me anyways. Michael and Greg were fishing Walleye out on Saginaw Bay and my Mom {as you can see below} was soaking up the sun drinking wine at 10am. I, on the other hand, was busy all morning cutting the grass and rototilling the garden.

Once I got my work done, I joined my Ma for some sun bathing on the patio

Friday evening once the guys got home from fishing, we went up town to the truck and tractor pulls

Saturday I had to go into work for a couple hours. Even though I would have rather stayed home, it was nice that it was literally only for a couple hours. I came home and spent most of the afternoon in the kitchen making some salads, desserts, and dinner dishes for the rest of the weekend. One of my favorites that I will be sharing soon was the Red, White, and Blue Truffle! {Okay, whatever it is  called... truffle, trifle, traffel?!}

Saturday night we park on the side of a backroad and wait until the sun goes down and watch the fireworks. It's quite awesome to not have to fight a crowd for a seat! My two preferences for watching fire works are either on a backroad or on the lake! Much more enjoyable!

Sunday consisted of the local parade and more over indulgence of food and sunshine! Perfect!
This is our little town. No traffic light or stop signs. If you blink at the right time, you'll be through the village. ;-)  
90% of the parade consisted of tractors. Ha!

Sunday evening my Mom, Greg, and Jasmine headed home. Michael and I decided to end our weekend with relaxation by taking a country cruise to look for deer and the baby fox in the hale bales by our house. They are soooo cute!

And this is what Jack thought of Monday morning back to reality as the hubs left for work!

I hope y'all had a great holiday weekend!
