summer days

Back to catching up on our summer!

After Danny’s mom left, we had our first weekend with no plans since the summer started (weekend of June 23rd). I decided to invite some of my friends over to my parents house to have a girls day at the pool on Saturday.
We were there all day – from 10am to 6pm! It was SO fun!
We listened to music, ate, drank and soaked up the sun!
I love girl time and we don’t do it nearly enough since we’re all married. Beth made delicious coconut rum fruit and Yvonne brought her yummy dip and “poinsettia” drinks! All the boys showed up later and we had fun playing in the pool. It was a nice summer day – just what I needed!
On Sunday (June 24th) my mom, dad, Danny and I all went to visit my aunt Donna in Prentiss (about an hour away). We hadn’t seen her in forever and my cousins, Mike and Kathy, were also there. It was so nice catching up. We need to make it a point to see each other more often.
We didn’t have any plans for July 4th weekend, so we were excited when Kevin and Beth decided to have a little party! On Friday night (July 3rd) Danny and I tried out Burgers and Blues for the first time.
They have the best outdoor patio with live music.
We went over to Kevin and Beth’s house on Saturday and shot off fireworks in a huge field by their house.
It was a nice, relaxing 4th of July.
Then on Sunday we went to Sarah and Derrick's house and they cooked a yummy meal for us. I also got to spend a little quality time with my favorite 11 month old!
This past week we were keeping my parents' dog, Bella, while they were in Las Vegas. I love that sweet little pup!
They got back on Saturday and Bella went home with them.  We spent the day running errands and shopping some of the Christmas in July sales. That afternoon we went over to Ruth's parents house and spent the entire evening there.
She and I have been best friends for 10 years!
She lives in New Orleans but was housesitting for her parents in Jackson. Her friend from Tulane, Jeff, came in town with her and we had a super fun dinner outside on their patio.
Danny had alot of fun playing with her dogs!
It was SO good seeing her again and we are definitely going to visit her in NOLA this fall!
