Whew...busy weekend!!

Hi everyone! We had a great 3rd of July celebration and a great visit with my sister and her husband. We went to a great neighborhood party for the 3rd of July (our little town does fireworks on the 3rd, have no idea why...maybe it's cheaper??). Lots of good food, friends, and fireworks!

I made THIS salad and it really was the best salad EVER. And yes, i'm a big ol' dork and took a photo of it.



We spent the morning before the party making this AWESOME Uncle Sam hat for my brother-in-law. He said he would wear a hat if we made one. My sister and I kicked into crafty overdrive and came up with the hat (along with some help from Kevin and Kayla). Craig decided to wear the pinata on his head at some point. Look at the 2 Uncle Sam's!!



Here's Kevin taking down the other pinata. Yes, there were 2 pinatas!!



Me and my little sis!



Sparklers!!





And some fireworks. This was my first year attempting to take any photos. I turned out with alot of really bad photos and one or two good ones.





Hope you all had a great holiday celebrating with your friends and family!!
