Happy 4th to All..

We had such an incredible weekend for the 4th of July that I have been super bummed this week to have been forced to join the “real” world again.  After a mysterious illness on Tuesday for Pate Man (his only symptoms were a mild, low-grade fever and constant SCREAMING.) We decided to head to Dallas, to my sister’s house, late Wednesday afternoon.  Todd was working that night, so the thought of having some extra hands was too tempting to say “no.”  

We hit the pool the minute we could change clothes and, basically, stayed there ALL weekend.  Thursday was followed by some more swimming and a little shopping.  We then took the kids to Great Wolf Lodge to meet my sister in law, Samantha and her boys, Colton and Austin.  

I have to admit that I didn’t quite know what to expect about the Lodge…we chose not to book for the nights as my kiddos are still a bit young to be expected to fall asleep in the same room.  HOWEVER, I am totally planning on taking that risk come fall.  That place is AWESOME!  I didn’t manage to fire one camera shot b/c I was way to busy playing.  The kiddos had an awesome time playing in the huge fort and the smaller pool, and I even got to sneak away for a few minutes to ride some big rides with the boys.  I LOVE that stuff.  We are totally planning on trying to get everyone together (including you Grammy and Pappy) to go this fall for some family fun.  That way, Glen will get to come too.

The rest of the weekend was the Lakewood parade and more swimming and grilling.  It really was such fun.  

Thanks Donna and Jim for letting us crash your house for so many nights!

Love you….

I know it looks like we didn’t dress Pate appropriately, but I just didn’t start looking early enough for the perfect BOY red, white, and blue outfit!
