Hope everyone had a lovely Fourth of July! We celebrated the holiday at a friend’s bbq stuffing our faces with good food and ice cold beers. I love how the holidays bring people together, especially friends from out of town that you haven’t seen in ages. We watched the world cup, played some outdoor games (couldn’t have asked for better weather) and I even learned how to play Spades. Well when I say learn, I mean I watched others play, but I think I understand the rules now. I think. I’m awful at card games, unless it’s UNO or Go Fish! I love playing Batman UNO with my nephews, we always team up against grandma (my mom). I know I know that’s not fair – but I still high-five my nephews when someone puts down the joker and makes grandma pick up 4 cards!!! The kids think it’s hilarious!
