It was a GRAND ole' time in Abilene, Town!

We are so blessed. Our sweet neighborhood hosted their 15th July 4th parade this year. It is such a fun event for our grand children. They love decorating their bikes and wagons and it is such a big deal to them! You would think it was the Macy's parade...and yet better! We decided this year to see if David's parents, Patti and Joe could join us for the holiday weekend. It was so delightful to have Patti, Joe, David, Ashley and Emma for the whole weekend! Zach and Meg and the boys were able to hang out with us too...so it was a perfect holiday weekend! :) We did LOTS of eating, sitting around watching the kids on the water slide that we set up in the backyard, eating, visiting, eating at Perini's, loving and playing with the kids and sadly, eating some more! :) Ashley came in earlier in the week and was a huge help to me! Thank you sweetie!!! So, I will stop typing and let the pictures tell about ALL the fun we had!

Ashley made these fun labels for all the food items...such a cute touch!

We made Pioneer Woman's Pulled Pork with this yummy slaw on top...Big Hit!!!
