Another one of those weekends for the books! I had a 4 day weekend which was much needed and glorious. I drove over to Echo on Friday after work and CJ and I and a few of his family members headed to his river cabin the next day to spend one night. The weather was beautiful and the river was refreshing! Did I get in you ask? Does sitting on a nerd emoji blow up water raft count? CJ made me get in so that I would be forced to wake up. I think I took a total of 3 naps in one day that afternoon, I was so pooped! I was not purposely being anti-social, but CJ thought getting in the river would be a good refreshing wake up. However what he forgot was that I HATE to be cold. Like seriously hate it. So I compromised and agreed to get on the floatie in the river. After we BBQ'd for dinner CJ and I played a little pool, and let me just tell you the outcome. I WON!!! I get few victories with him, so I think my running total right now is 1. Shuffle Board and 2. Pool. I felt pretty great about myself. No lie. The next day we went to the airport to pick his parents up who had just flown home from Europe. Monday we drove back to Portland and laid by the pool on Tuesday before heading to the Rodeo! I just don't think it would really feel like the 4th of July without going to St. Paul! I love that place and we had such a good time. CJ hadn't been there before so it was fun to show him around and watch the fireworks with him. 

I just love the 4th! What a great Holiday and what a wonderful reminder of the Freedom we often take for granted. I am thankful I can proclaim my love for Jesus and that I can feel safe in my country. 

I have been looking everywhere for these shorts that have the lighter denim and the fray and the shape these do. I think these are the same ones and if not they are very similar! They are also on sale right now! Love that! 

I hope you all had wonderful 4th of July celebrations and that you got to have a 4 day weekend like I did. 

Love and Fireworks
