Fourth of July Festivities

I hope everyone had a happy fourth of July weekend. I know I sure did! Although I had to work most of the weekend, when I was off I enjoyed myself. On Saturday the beau and I went to two dear friends wedding. It was absolutely joyous to be a part of the joining of these two people. The ceremony reflected their loved for God and Him being the center of their relationship. The reception was a South African tea, as the bride grew up in South Africa. She is the daughter of a missionary and now the family has returned to the states while the children have gone through college. I'm so happy for this couple and can't wait to see where the Lord takes me. The beau and I started our day with some shopping, the wedding, and ended with a good ole American ball game. We had so much fun and had excellent seats!! Right in the shade, and five feet from bathrooms/concessions. Although the beau did have to dodge a few foul balls, haha. 

I enjoyed a delicious funnel cake with my coke.


We came to the same stadium last year for the Fourth of July to enjoy the fireworks as well, its really a great show!

On Monday night we set off our slew of fireworks and fired of the grill. My parents sure out did themselves this year. Here was our menu : italian marinated chicken, BBQ chicken, BBQ ribs, macaroni and cheese, green beans, cheesy potatoes, steamed shrimp, and watermelon. Needless to say we were stuffed!! After dinner we played a round of badminton until it got dark. Then Daddy brought out his launch pad, yes he has a launch pad just for the fourth of July. 

I love sparklers
