Holiday Weekend

Finished Feb and Aug. Kat along with section 28/30 on Inspirations

This has been an interesting weekend. We went over to our friends house on the 3rd to shoot off fireworks and have a cookout. They have a pool in their backyard and they told us to bring over the boys for a swim. They boys had so much fun!!! This is a big step for them because even though they are labs...they DO NOT like water!! When it rains it takes me forever to get Tusk to go in it so he will go potty. Its very took a while for them to dive in....Mark had to get in the middle of the pool and Brigen would just stand there and bark at him. Finally, Tusk stepped in and tried to swim. They were both very BAD swimmers at first but after a while they began to enjoy it. We had to take them home during the fireworks because when we were shooting off bottle rockets....they barked every time we shot one off.....They don't like the sound of them. We had to postpone the big fireworks we bought because of the rain.

On the fourth, we went down to my grandparents house to sepnd it with my family. We had a very good time shooting off fireworks with the kids. India found a baby frog and decided to keep it. She put it in a big jar with some grass and a rocks until she got home.

On Sat. Mark golfed and watched movies and stitched. I worked on weenie dog and read some.... That afternoon, we took the boys swimming again at our friends house (they were out of town and gave us permission)...this time they just dove right in....didn't take any prodding or anything.

Mom came over and we grilled steak that night. I sat up and watched Pride and Prejudice again. I just love that movie and Colin Firth makes an awesome Mr. Darcy.

Today, I stitched all day on Tiger.....I didn't get as much stitched as I wanted to but I did get about 1/4 fo the way finished on page 8. That is my weekend in a nutshell....
