Happy 4th of July

Today we were able to have some wonderful friends over for brunch.  I didn't realize until after they left I didn't get any pictures of their sweet family, but Brenden took plenty of pictures so hopefully I can get some from her.  
I did manage to get pictures of the food.  Many of my ideas were inspired by different Pinterest pins.
We were able to eat out on our back patio this morning, it was so nice.
I had fun setting up the kid's table.  All the kids loved their cups with the fun straws.

I love the American Flag in the back.  
I found these letters from an old printing press in Forney, TX.  
The french toast was good, but I think I will try tweaking a few things the next time I make it.  
My favorite part about cooking, watching my family enjoy eating it.  

Brenden was sweet and took this family picture for us.  I love it!
After our friends left we had some rest time to power up for our evening activities.  
At the park with more friends from church, there was a play ground, a splash pad, and enough room for the dads to play football.  Everyone was happy.  
Garrett eating some fried chicken and lemonade.  He is such a cheesey boy when the camera comes out.  
Garrett was super excited when he saw the watermelon.  I love his little grin.  
After the park we just came home. We really wanted to go and watch fireworks, but this year we just didn't have it in us to battle with three tired kiddos in the Texas heat.  We came home and gave baths and sat on the couch and watched the NBC 4th of July special and the kids were mesmerized by the fireworks.  
Jon and I both love the 4th of July.  We love this country and I am so proud of Jon for the part he played in defending our freedom.  I love that we are able to spend nights like tonight together enjoying our amazing family.  I hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July.
