What A Wonderful 4th of July Weekend

I had such a great 4th of July weekend! Boyfriend and I spent it with my family and we had such a good time.

Friday we left our apartment, after Kody got off work, and we on our way to my mom's house. We ate dinner with my mom and her boyfriend and then we went to go visit my grandparents and some of my other family at the campgrounds. We were going to go to the dive in to see Transformers, but it was way too packed. We hung out with my grandparents and some of my aunts, uncles, and cousins, for a couple hours, sitting around the campfire. It reminded me of how much fun I had as a kid when me and my sisters used to go camping with them.

Saturday we were suppose to go to my dad and step mom's 4th of July party but they had to cancel because my dad was sick for awhile and missed some days of work, so they didn't have the money to have the party. So we went and hung out at the campgrounds again. We were there almost all day, just hanging with my family and playing some games. We played a little Hillbilly Golf and my little sister and I won a few times and lost to my grandpa and uncle. Afterwards we went to bingo to see if we could win any money, but we lost. A single game was worth $80 and coverall was $440. We left the campgrounds to go watch the fireworks with my sister at the park. We were afraid of not getting a parking spot but we parked at the hospital, a few blocks away, and we were able to catch a shuttle bus that took us to the park, and back to our car after the fireworks were done. I love watching fireworks and I was sad I missed them last year, because of work, so I was excited to be able to see them this year. And it was the first fireworks show me and Kody have seen together. After the firworks we went back to my sisters and played a little beer pong with her and a few of her friends. All and all it was a great 4th of July and I loved spending it with Kody and my family.

Sunday we woke up early from my sisters and drove back to my mom's. Then we slept til about two. Before leaving to go back home we went to visit my dad and step mom since we haven't seen them since Easter. I'm really upset that they weren't able to have thier party because they haven't had a big party since I was in like 9th grade and it was so fun. They were going to have volleyball, slip and slides, fireworks, and a bonfire. They want to plan one for the end of the month and I told them we would be coming back August 1st for my family reunion so Dad said they might have it that day so we could be there. I really hope they do. And now were relaxing at home and watching tv :)
