The post of 1000 pictures...

Weekends around here a typically low key.  We prefer rest and relaxation while it seems most people prefer to go the route of let's do all the things.

This weekend however, we were nonstop doing all of the 4th of July things...

On Friday we spent the day getting ready for a cookout.  Sarah had quite a few plans in mind for the cookout.

She painted mason jars red,white and blue and we used those to hold the forks and knifes.  She made appetizers: pretzel rods covered in white chocolate and sprinkles and a fruit flag.  And she made decorations.  The girl loves a good DIY Tutorial. 



 

On Friday evening, Jennifer and her family came over.  We had hot dogs, hamburgers, corn on the cob, tortellini salad...you know...4th of July food.  And Jennifer brought sparklers and glow sticks.  We had a blast!

On Saturday we headed to Hanging Rock State Park and climbed to three of the small waterfalls.  Here are some of the pictures from that adventure:






















On Saturday evening we went to a Winston-Salem Dash game and here's the one picture I took there:



And we rounded out our exciting 4th of July weekend with Sunday morning Mass, lunch at my parent's house, and a cookout at our pool.  (I have zero pictures from Sunday so you'll just have to take my word for it!)

It was busy.  But it was good!

Wow! What a great 4th of July weekend! We're vacationing this week in Washington DC and passed right by your neck of the woods! I saw signs for the Hanging Rock Park and the Winston-Salem sign when we were traveling to DC. It's a beautiful area . . . and so is your family! Happy 4th!

I like the low-key vs all the things too. Looks like a fun full weekend to mix it up a bit.
