the best of times

hey hey! hope ya'll had a great holiday weekend filled with family, friends and fun! i definitely did!

started the weekend off right (and early) at Thursday Night Live:

Had dinner with some friends at their new home on Friday night and spent all of Saturday by the pool then out downtown with some girlfriends:

Sunday hung out in the sun all day again, had lunch with some girlfriends on the patio and then laid by the pool with some cocktails:

then got cleaned up for a bbq and a fab fireworks show Sunday evening:
it was super muggy out

Monday was my family up super early to be at the local race by 7:30 (i am NOT a morning person)

my sweet pea in his "run uncle ben" t i made for him to wear. he had the best time ever playing with all the other kids at the party. def took a nice long nap after we got home, he was all tuckered out!
 the spread (my bb pics aren't too great, it was very pretty!)
 me and up early to cheer our guys on:
 Bonnie & Dave host this party every year. I've showed you all their house before...I absolutly love it! I would totally live on that deep front porch!

After napping, we headed downtown for the city festivities. Parade and street festival. The sun ended up coming out and it was hot hot hot...miz.

I let Logan play in one of the fountains downtown. yea, i'm eaither the best aunt ever or the worst aunt ever! hope he didn't pick up any diseases in there! but hey, i'm pretty sure they have chloring in them?! right?

got my first sunburn of the summer...and hopefully last. i always wear at least spf 50 but completely slipped my mind before we headed downtown since it was cloudy and rainy at the time. hate that...i'm paranoid abt skin cancer and wrinkles!

and then rounded off the weekend with a family bbq and another big fireworks show...and then i went home and crashed!

have a lovely 4 day week! today is already Wednesday! I'm in Knoxville for work until tomorrow night and then its almost the weekend again! wooooohoooo!
