We hosted our first outdoor party at our house this weekend. It went so well that I think it's safe to say that our place will be "the" place to be next year.
|I finally got her to keep her sunnies on! This is a huge step in the right direction!|
|This is Aubrey's little area of the yard. It's the shadiest part of the yard so it's a nice retreat on a hot summer day. We'll be adding a swing set and some hammocks to this area in the next year or so too.|

So all of these pictures from this point on are taken from the window of the sitting area of the house. Not the best, but you get the idea.
|All lit up! This is one of my favorite parts of the yard. They look so magical in person.|
Our town's firework display was on Sunday night and we didn't plan on going because we were tired from our party on Saturday and we didn't want to keep Aubrey up past her bedtime 2 nights in a row. This was our first 4th of July in our new home so we had no idea but it turns out that we have the most perfect view of the town's firework display from none other than our sitting area! We'll never have to sit in the traffic or wait around outside on the buggy streets filled with people. The sitting room was a one of the major draws when we choose the design of our house but we had no idea how much use we would actually get out of it until now.
How was your weekend?
Am I the only one with a family of fire-loving guys that fill up carts of fireworks like this?
