4th of July weekend.

This weekend was way too much fun. It was my first weekend without work in I don't know how long, and Justin and I got to spend whole three days celebrating and playing with our families. Friday night we went out to Olive Garden with the entire Reynolds clan to celebrate Grandma Reynolds' 81st birthday, and then went back to her house for some cake and ice cream and visiting. 

Saturday night we were able to go to the Stadium of Fire (thanks to my parents for the tickets...love you mom and dad!) to listen to some David Archuleta and Brad Paisley all from the 12th row. Not a huge Archuleta fan, but I have a major crush on Brad Paisley, so I was loving it (as was my mother, who kept running up to the very front to try to touch him. Love her and her country men crushes.) And then for the fireworks!

Sunday, after sleeping in until 11 and then also taking a long nap after church, we set out to Provo for the annual Knaphus family 4th of July sleepover. Every year my mom's side of the family gets together to eat, play games, watch a movie on the projector outside, set up our tents for the sleepover, and eat a big breakfast in the morning. Justin and I weren't able to stay for the sleepover due to Justin's boy scout duties at home, but we got to sit and visit with everyone while they ate and sang happy birthday to my big brother Joey. Happy birthday Joe! Love you big guy :)

On Monday our original plan was to go swimming at my parents house and attempt to get some kind of basic tan before our Newport trip in a couple of weeks, but since it ended up being cloudy and rainy we went up to Park City for some shopping with Corinne, Chris, and Cami instead. Then it was back to the Reynolds for a BBQ, and then to my parents house to see my family. I'll be honest, I was mostly just excited about being able to play with this little guy. I can't get enough of him.

And tonight we decided that we weren't quite ready to end our vacation, so after work Justin and I decided to ignore everything that we needed to get done and make dinner, cuddle in the lovesac and watch Tangled, and then set out for our favorite ice cream place--Golden Spoon.

Such a great weekend! And to make it even better...

Introducing the future Mrs. Barrus! My very best friend Ali Kay Heaps (also my cousin-in-law, how great is that?) got engaged this weekend and I could not be happier for her! She's an absolutely incredible person and deserves the very best. She and her fiance Mikey make such an adorable couple and I love them both. So happy for them!

Love you Al :)
