4th of July Weekend

Why does it take one day to pack and get ready for a trip but 2 or 3 to get unpacked and back into your routine?  You would think I would have a better handle on coming home from Kansas but traveling just flat out makes this momma tired.  And that people is why it has taken me a few days to blog about our weekend.

Last Friday we loaded up and headed to Kansas for the weekend.  First stop was Winfield to see Lady and Uncle Alex.  Papa had to work so we didn't get to see him :(  We went to dinner and then played at the park.  It was the perfect evening to be outside.
That night we headed to Belle Plaine to Grandpa Kent and Grandma Terry's.  We had plans on swimming most of the weekend but the weather had other plans.  It rained most of the weekend.  On Saturday we went into Wichita to do a little shopping.  We met up with Granny, Aunt Lisa, and Uncle Mark for dinner. 
On Sunday, 4th of July we spent the day with Grandpa and Grandma.  In the afternoon Uncle J, Auntie Cammie, Brennen and Brylee came over.  Uncle J was in charge of fireworks and he did a great job.  We all had fun.  I think Hadley loved the fireworks the best and didn't want them to end.
My attempt at a picture of the girls together in their 4th of July dresses did not goes as planned.
So we went for individuals.
Brylee and Jillian had matching dresses but I could not get a picture of them together either.
The only picture I could get of Brennen was outside.
Jillian and her Uncle J who she loves.
The men and their firecrackers.
Hadley got to fetch the parachute.
 Jillian wasn't a fan of the loud noises but loved the bubbles with Grandma.
Somehow this is the only picture of Grandpa.
It was a fun weekend!
