We went to my sister's house over the Fourth of July weekend and had a blast, as usual. Scott and I stopped on the way there to stock up on fireworks.
On Saturday, we went to the Mountain State Art and Craft Fair while in WV and sampled yummy food, saw some wonderful local art work, and bought some delicious pickles and hot pepper jellies to take back to my sister's house to share. That night we went to downtown Huntington for dinner. The downtown area is beautiful!
Craig and Scott golfed on Sunday and we girls hung out and then grocery shopped for the 4th. Craig fired up the grill and we had burgers and lots of sides for lunch on the 4th. We got to visit with his side of the family that afternoon. Good times! That evening, we had a large 'camp' fire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for dinner.
After it got dark, Scott started the fireworks show. The girls got to set off some fireworks and I even got brave enough to light some fountains.
Here are some pictures from our holiday. Once again, it would have been perfect if Nick could have joined us, but he's working hard at camp....we are truly empty-nesters.
I hope you had a wonderful Independence Day!
