July 4th Weekend

We didn't do anything real exciting over the weekend. Friday we mostly relaxed at home, though we did get out, to eat at On the Border for lunch. I had been out of town Wednesday and Thursday, and didn't have any meat thawed out to cook, so going somewhere was really the only option. KatieLynn requested 'mesican food'; I think our whole family could eat it every day, and not be tired of it. :) By the time it got dark, Dean was tired and ready for bed, but KatieLynn stayed up with Darren and I. We could see tons of fireworks for miles around, from our front porch. Saturday night we spent with the Schultz family, and Sunday celebrated my SIL, Courtney's birthday.

The kids got to play outside all weekend long. KatieLynn's favorite outside activities are playing in the water pool, jumping on the trampoline, and riding her pedal tractor. Dean loves pushing and loading/dumping rocks into his big dumptruck and tractor w/loader, plus the sandbox, and also the pool and trampoline.

Dean is giving Daddy some big hugs.

KatieLynn & Dean love the trampoline and
Ring around the Rosies!

Dean loves falling down on the trampoline!

The favorite move in the water pool is going upside down on their backs.
Here's KatieLynn preparing for launch!

cousins, Emma & KatieLynn Friedel
they always enjoy getting together!
