First Independence Day

We had a wonderful time chilling last weekend. It was relaxed and calm- just what we needed. I have to admit I wouldn’t mind heading up to DC next year to watch some super awesome fireworks with Irene and Beej. Nate was just a bit too tiny for that this year. Here’s a few pics!

Corn on the cob, Bradley’s sausage, and a chicken- smoked to perfection by Trey. Glad mom and Billy were next door to help us finish this (I believe this food lasted both families for a few meals, ha!)

This was our attempt at a decent family photo. It was about a million degrees at this point, the mosquitos were closing in, and (thanks to photo editing you can’t tell) Nate pooped on me. I don’t want this blog to be a place where I gloss over everything and make our life seem perfect. It’s not. There’s poop for crying out loud! But, I love this picture because even though Trey and I are attempting to mask our discomfort, Nate’s adorable expression is a reminder of why it doesn’t even matter. We have each other, so it’s all ok.
