Hope You Had A Happy 4th of July!

Hey everyone! How was your July 4th holiday? Mine was great- with the exception of it raining the entire day and fireworks getting cancelled. Tyler and I took the train to my sister a.k.a. Pup's house. It was a 3 hour trip, so it was nice to not have to worry about driving. Instead I fired up my ipod and read magazines while Tyler studied for the bar exam. As you can see from the pic above- even though it was 6:30 a.m. I was SO EXCITED to be on the train! I was just a little kid the last time I took a real train trip! For some reason Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches taste 10 times better when you get it from the train's snack car :D Yay for trains!

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! :)

  7. Looks like you had a ton of fun. I love your cute top w/ the vest. I checked out your sister's blog and loved it. Man, she is very talented. I try to cook and make stuff like she does. Only I'm not as good as she is yet. She needs to be on the Food Network.
