Pools, Pizza, and a Patriotic Weekend

Happy Belated 4th of July!  Hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!  Ours was full of pool time, lots of walks, a cookout with friends, movies, good food, and my parents coming into town!  
Whew!  

Such a great long weekend, and it was so nice to have John home for a couple of extra days!  
It was our first Independence Day with a baby, so no fireworks for us.  But that didn't stop us from having fun!  

We kicked things off Thursday with a 6 month appointment for Andrew, and he was a champ!  Shots and all!  (He always does better than Mommy does!)
He's a little tyke, weighing in at 14.5 lbs and 26 inches long.  But healthy as can be!




That night I made our favorite Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas,


 and rented Lone Survivor (since we were in the patriotic mood).  
Such an intense movie!  Cannot believe this is a true story. 



Friday was filled with sleeping in, World Cup Soccer, a long hike with baby, and grilling out!






Saturday was a day at the pool!!  It was a perfectly glorious sunshiny day!





Then it was a cookout with friends!  Summertime is just the best!




My parents came into town on Sunday!
We had the most DELICIOUS dinner at our favorite local pizza place, dining al fresco. 








Followed by another beautiful hike down to the lake...





I didn't want this weekend to end!!

Especially because I'm having surgery in the morning!!
(My third - and hopefully last - sinus surgery.  I'd appreciate any thoughts and prayers...
Thank you!!)

Hope y'all had a great weekend as well - 
Will be back to blogging as soon as I'm up to it! :)

I'm obsessed with those honey lime enchiladas and my hubby stayed up late last night to rent Lone Survivor and he said this morning that I wouldn't have liked it! Too much blood...I'm such a wimp. Your bikini is adorable. I love that top. Praying for a quick recovery on your sinus surgery too!

Looks like a great weekend! Love your swimsuit also!! The pizza looks YUM!!! PS, we watched Lone Survivor too (blogged about it also) and I just LOVED it! I can't get it off my mind. Of course I had to google Marcus Lutrell after then friend him on twitter and IG! :)
