More Long Weekend Fun...

We spent the 4th of July Holiday at the beach. We slept, ate, people watched and just RELAXED. Mom, Dad, Michelle and Ariel joined the fiverancks at Zuma. It was such a perfect day at the beach (even though it wasn't the original beach we had planned on, we still had a great time). They were in the water most of the time. After we got home, we swam and BBQ'd at my parents. Then we walked around the block and watched fireworks!

On the 5th, we received a call from Brent's Aunt Mandy, who said that cousin Justin (who had been in Iraq this past year) was visiting for the weekend and they were trying to round up whoever could make the beach. We wouldn't pass up this opportunity, it's always fun to see and talk with Justin. We just love his stories. Needless to say, Brent, Noah & I drove down to Huntington Beach and enjoyed a nice afternoon-evening with the Ranck-Garcia-Baty-Denicola clan around the fire pit, eating Robin's yummy carne asada. We topped our meal off with yummy s'mores!

Our Sunday, was pretty restful, however, I had some Sassy Sisters work to do. We have a big event coming up in 2 weeks. I had some major creating to do. I also got to talk to my dear sister-in-law, Ase in Norway. We talked for a VERY long time. We hadn't talked like that in LONG time, we had lots of catching up to do. All-in-all, we had a very pleasant weekend and we are looking forward to another time when we’re all home, enjoying another LONG weekend.
