Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!

We had a fantastic weekend celebrating the 4th of July with friends and enjoying our little family! On Saturday I left Daddy at home with Chase for some much needed & deserved one-on-one time and went out for a couple of hours to have lunch with Staci & Sara to celebrate Sara's birthday. In the evening we went over to Staci & Jordan's house for a hot dog cookout and to relax on their patios. This time next week, we will be in walking distance to their home from our new one and so this weekend we practiced our "BFF BBQ's" that we are sure to be having all summer long!

Sunday morning we got up, ready & packed up for a long but fun day! We started out at Matt's grandparents house for a rib cookout and some swimming then headed over to Staci's parents house for a full afternoon & evening of swimming & food. Jordan's sister and her children joined us as well and it was a really good time. Jess & Eric's youngest son, Bronx, was born only 1 week before Chase so it was fun to see the similarities and differences between the two boys. Bronx is one of the calmest, most chill babies I've ever met. Chase is a pretty relaxed, rarely fussy baby, and Bronx still topped him for the ultimate chill factor.

In the evening when it got dark, we had a great surprise with fireworks from the neighbors. They apparently hire a professional and obtain a permit to come put on a real fireworks display for the neighborhood. Chase was so enthralled with the bright colors and didn't mind the loud noise at all! It's so much fun getting to experience all of the "firsts" in his life! Enjoy a few photos from our great weekend!
