On Saturday, we went to the Skinner house to celebrate the 4th and all of the July birthdays. Nathan had fun playing with his cousin Colten.
He loved it when Granny took him outside to see the "moo" cows!
It was a nice time with the family, unfortunately Matthew was working all weekend. The 4th is one of their mandatory work holidays. :( We always miss him when he can't come with us. On the 4th, we went to Aunt Laura's to swim and have our annual fish fry. Its always a lot of fun.
Gammy and PawPaw took the boys home with them for the night! They were so excited to load up in their car!
On my actual birthday, the 5th, Mom, Stacy, Reese, and Matthew took me out to lunch, then the girls went shopping for the rest of the day. It was great!
When I got home from shopping, this was on the counter:
It was so sweet, Matthew and Nathan had their own special Birthday party planned for me. I LOVED it!
My card from Nathan,
My favorite gift!!!
It was the perfect birthday party!
Then we went to my moms house, because she wanted to a party for me and Chris whose birthday is the 24th! Ever since Reese's birthday, he has been telling me to have a barbie party, so guess what, I did! He helped his mom make the cake.
We had big plans to play on the water slides, but it was raining, so we just stayed inside and had a good time playing with the boys and a good game of scrabble!
The rain however, did not stop dad from smoking some of my FAVORITE chicken!!
Playing guns with Meme
Of course Reese got me a barbie!
I have to say, this was a great birthday!!!!
