Fourth of July FUN!

Wow, we had a fun 4th of July! We were so excited to have Matthew and Charlene here for the entire weekend to party with. They got here late Thursday night. I was afraid Carson was going to explode with excitement waiting for them! He's totally in love with Charlene...or as he calls her...his girlfriend! Friday we had great plans of heading to the pool while Christian and Matthew worked, but it was really overcast and the guys got home before the pool even opened. So we just hung out Friday afternoon and took naps...real exciting, I know! That evening it was our turn to clean the church so we enlisted Matthew and Charlene's help but rewarded them with dinner at the Mexican restaurant here in town and it was usual! After dinner we stopped at the new park to play for a while. Saturday we got up and made breakfast and then hurried to the parade. After the parade, Carson really wanted to fly his kite so they went to a vacant field close to our house and flew it a while. When they returned, we started getting food ready for a bbq. We ate a late lunch/early dinner. We decided to work off our lunch with a game of baseball. We played with Carson first and then after he went down for a nap, we played boys against girls. I found out just how out of shape I really am! After naps, we shot off our fireworks, had some dessert and headed to the fairgrouds to watch the city fireworks. This year they handed out 3-D glasses to wear while we watched the show. It was pretty cool but it was even funner to listen to Matthew and Charlene ooo and ahhh as the fireworks appeared to get closer to them! We had so much fun having Matthew and Charlene with us and miss them already! Thanks for sharing your weekend with us...we loved you having you here!
