A Great Day for a Picnic!

A couple of weeks ago our friend Linda invited us to go on a picnic with her. She just can't believe all of the fun things we haven't done yet while living here and wants to show it all to us. She is the sweetest! So we picked her up and drove about 40 minutes to Las Huertas in Placitas NM. We found a great spot to picnic and it was right by a stream. The kids had a blast playing in the water, catching butterflies, and exloring. Ethan got in a little baseball practice too. We had a feast of KFC chicken and sides, fresh veggies and fruit, and a yummy peach cobbler that I made. It was a wonderful day!

4th of July

We had a great 4th of July weekend this year!  We went to the city fireworks show and then on Sunday afternoon had friends over to celebrate.  I love this holiday because of the colors, the food, the patriotism I feel, and the fireworks. Our neighborhood firework show on Sunday night was awesome.  We had some and our friends brought lots too.  The Gallagher's brought the big stuff though!  Our neighbors on both sides of us had the huge ones too so we had one heck of a show.  It was fun to hang out with old friends and get to know new ones.  It's weird to think that we will be in a different house next year for 4th of July!
