We have been so busy I didn't even realize it was July! Holy Moly! Happy July 2nd! :)
First, we went to visit my best friend, Courtney's family, for a couple of days. We had a blast just doing nothing. :) We did get treated to an awesome home-cooked food restaurant. The name is Vegetable Medley. It is a small place with these cute little old ladies that cook good fattening southern food. And we all ate every bit of it. It is set up like a buffet, but the food is extremely fresh and is gone within 15 minutes of being put out.
The inside is really small & the elderly lady who was seating people about had a break down when we came in with our 6 kids and said we had a party of 8. :) I wanted to say, "It will be oookkaaaay...no need to freak out."
After a very delicious and filling lunch all the kids wanted to sit on the tractor out front. They were so funny. I think they are pretty darn cute too.
After the lunch outing, we just relaxed and did 'nothing'. I like doing nothing sometimes...okay okay...most times. :) I am a true home-body.

Courtney & I went through old memorabilia while the kids did arts, video games, & just played hard. I wish I could have gotten a picture of them asleep. They all fell asleep together in 1 room.

When we got back, Matt, Bridget & Austin came for the rest of the weekend. That is my brother-in-law, sister-in-law & nephew. They live in Indiana and were stopping by for a mini visit before going on the Voignier Beach trip. Clay's parents rented a house this week at the beach, but we were not able to go this time. Clay just started his new job & getting a whole week off right away would have been too much. Plus we had already paid for our beach house in August last December before we knew they were planning on another summer trip. Maybe next summer - we will be able to coincide schedules & dates a little better.
But I know they are going to have a lot of fun. Who doesn't have fun at the beach?! It's one of my favorite vacation spots.
Anyway, we just chilled out inside and did nothing -again :) It was 105 degrees outside...nope, no way, sorry charlie, nobody is going outside. The A/C was on & somebody would have gotten sick from that heat. We had fun just watching movies, talking & relaxing.

By the time I took this picture they were all yelling at me, "I can't see the movie!" lol

And just look at these brothers. Clay is such a ham!
I hope you all had a good weekend & stayed cool! I know I did. ;)
