And she’s back.

hey strangers, long time no see blog, huh? I took a self-imposed two week blogging hiatus because 1) my schedule was crazy busy and 2) it’s summer, duh, and sometimes you just need to step…away…from the computer.

We had quite the festive Fourth of July at the ol’ Leonard household. Just pretend like I’m posting this five days ago when you still cared about people’s fourth of July photos…

I bought a bunch of cheap flags and decorated thoughtfully stuck them in random flower pots

and made a patriotic fruit pizza that promptly disappeared less than 5 minutes after it was served.

My sister Melissa, her fiance Ty and his brother were on water balloon duty.

We may have bought a ‘single family’ inflatable pool & a Slip ‘N Slide like we were 12 year olds instead of adults.

Some of us grown-ups even have adorable babies!

Some of the babies are just furrier than others…

We grilled burgers and chicken sausages and listened to Jacob’s custom Fourth of July playlist.

Betsy and I made a flag.

We definitely tested the pool to its limits. Single family means 10 adults and a baby, right?

Good holiday, good food, good fun, good friends! I hope your Fourth was just as  safe and happy as ours.

Thank you to all who have served and continue to serve our country!

Life at the Lake

As soon as I got off work on Friday we hightailed it to Jacob’s family’s lake house on Greers Ferry Lake. The lake house is about 3 hours away, but we never regret making the trip.

We both desperately needed a good weekend away with family, food, and sunshine.

Even Lois enjoyed riding on the boat.

At least until we decided to do this…

Hilarious, right?    No?    I guess you had to be there.

Hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend as much as we did!
