Good Things

So, after a relaxing 4th of July at home... we had a relaxing 5th of July at home! And then... in the evening time... we walked down to my parent's house for a little party action with good food, good people, and just good times in general...










We had SUCH a good time, in fact... that we didn't get home until WAYYYY after "dark time..."













(It was after 10 o'clock, I say! That hasn't happened to us as a family in, oh, say 4 years this November! How nice to be slowly but surely regaining ground in a social circle as a family of 4...)


The kids were so exhausted after such an exciting weekend they gave us a rare and precious gift... we all slept in until nearly 8am this morning!!! (Can you hear the rejoicing?? We celebrated by making it to church... ON TIME... wait for it... SECOND WEEK IN A ROW...!)


So, you see... my life is so full of good things at this moment... that I cant wait for a good week ahead.

Annabelle is always SO cute in pictures (not to say that she isn't also cute in real life) -- I swear she's gonna be a model when she grows up! Also, it looks like your parents have a gorgeous backyard that is perfect for entertaining. Anyways, I'm excited that your week is off to a good start. I don't know you all that well so I have to ask, are you guys (you and Tyson) to the "leave your kids with someone else and go stay out late together" stage yet? Or does that come in like 5 years? I'm not a mom so I have no idea...

welllll... we would LOVE to be at that stage but we are pretty spoiled with 2 sets of grandparents in the area, so generally if theres something that comes up that involves being out late, they can just spend the night with one of them. but, its also kind of a project for the grandparents, having both of them... so we dont cash in on that too often... i think they will get easier in a couple years and then maybe there will be more eager takers... at least thats what i tell myself...
