We have a cute airbnb we love to stay at in Mount Pleasant when we need little getaways as a family! They gave us a free night stay this summer so we thought we’d utilize it and make a fun little trip out of it. We happened to be there during the 24th of July and it was just a really great time together. We went on a drive through some beautiful hills and found a super bright yellow bush with so many butterflies all around it! it was amazing! We spent a lot of time just letting the kids run around in the huge yard, doing fun summer things like eating popcicles and making s’mores and even did some fireworks ha ha I sure love my rascals and my husband! These little staycations have always been so good for our relationships with one another so I highly encourage you to try and get away as a little nuclear family! It doesn’t have to be far away and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Just that time away from all other distractions is just so good for everyone. :)
So thankful to be American and to live in this amazing country! We had our traditional 4th of July BBQ with family this year and had so much fun. Thanks to everyone who came and contributed! I’m also so thankful to Kyler for planning and preparing the retiring of an old American flag and putting a special program together. It was a powerful reminder of the "why" behind Independence Day.
We had delicious food, some mud volleyball, a slip n slide, the retiring of the flag, some painting crafts and just had a great time overall! And afterwards we hung out with Drew and Rachel and got some yummy dinner. It was a really good day. :)
