The 4th with my Fam!

I had my family together over the holiday weekend and I was loving every minute of it!! My parents got to come home from Texas and my brother also came home from Nashville! I love when we are all together!

We grilled out hamburgers and hot dogs on the 3rd and they were oh so good! I decorated the table a little bit. Nothing elaborate, but cute.

{My adorable lil bro enjoyin his burger!}

{for dessert, we had banana splits . . . one of my all time favs!}

{on the 4th, we had to go to Little Rock to take my Mom to the airport because she had to fly on home because she had to work the next day. We decided to make a day of it and spend some time in Little Rock, since we lived there when I was a little girl. I got this hat at Target and before we left to head to LR, I came out and made my family think I was going to embarrass them by wearing it all day! It was pretty funny!}

{we stopped by the William J. Clinton Library for a bit}
{my beautiful family - minus hubby who spent some time with his family that afternoon}

{my Dad, brother and me}

{we headed down to the River Market and grabbed some lunch at Flying Fish}


{Me & my bro, Casey}

{Loved these American Flag paintings I saw - had to get a picture of them!}

{me and mom - it was super hot and sunny!!}

{after we took Mom to the airport, me and my brother and dad drove around LR for a little while, got some frozen yogurt, drove by my parents first home that I lived in till I was 7, and then my Dad took us by this house - which was where my Mom lived for a while with her family when she was a little girl. I had never seen it, but thought it was SO adorable!!! Even now, over 40 years later!}

{as we headed back to Memphis, Dad let me pick some tunes in his iPod - so I played some festive songs to get us in the 4th of July spirit!}

{Finally we got home and got to spend part of the 4th with my honey! He found my hat and enjoyed sportin it! I couldn't stop laughing!!}

Hope all of you had a fab 4th as well!! I can't believe how the summer is already flying by!!
