This is Pup & Jeff's gorgeous, but soggy backyard. We still had a great time cooking up some tasty dishes. We enjoyed Jeff's special burgers & fries, mom's macaroni & baked beans, an adorable cheese ball... and so much more! Pup loves to cook and does a good job documenting everything, so for more on all of that, check out Pup's blog.
I should have taken many more pictures- don't you hate it when that happens? You have your camera there because you want to use it but you only remember to pick it up a few times. We all missed my brother Ryan, sister in law Shanna, and my little niece Ashley- but Ryan had to travel to China for a work trip the following day so it would've been tough for them to make the trip to Pup's.
As I said- I wish I would've taken many more pictures, but this is probably one of the sweetest ones anyone could take. This is Tyler right after he'd fallen asleep on the couch with one of Pup & Jeff's kitties laying on him. So cute! Looking at this picture just makes me feel warm, cozy, and relaxed... and that pretty much sums up my 4th of July. So glad to see my family again and just wish it could happen more often. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend like I did! :)
