4th of July Weekend

My brother Matthew and his family came home for 4th of July weekend. Here I am with Adden dressed in our red, white and blue, ready for church.

Here I am with my adorable Dad, ready for church on the 4th. :)

On the way to church we made our traditional 4th of July stop and the cemetery to visit Granddad's grave and place a flag on it.

That evening I went with my Aunt and Cousins to Cayucos beach for the fireworks, it's been about 5 years since I had been at the beach for the fireworks and it was a great time. Katie's Bf Mike was working that day at his uncles shop across the street from the beach so not only was he able to get us the best parking EVER, he saved us each a delicious fish taco!!! Love it when we have the hook ups!

Here we are Katie, Mike (katie's bf), Sadie, Addie, and I

Happy 4th of July! God Bless America!

Even my toes were patriotic.

As it started to get dark we got cosy waiting for the fireworks to begin.
It was kinda hard take pics because of all the smoke and fog...but I heart the beach and it was fun to be there with my cousins.

I decided to get out my new camera (my graduation) gift from the parents and takes some pics of Adden while they were visiting. Here he is dancing with his Daddy.

He dumped an entire bag of fish crackers on the carpet and then sang "clean up" as he put them back in...maybe if I was his Mom it wouldn't be funny...but I thought it was hilarious.

Adden Loves his Cars.

....and playing in the sandbox...I love this face!

Sand is quite fascinating

Love that giggle :)

Fun with Grandma Kathy

Kinda a gross pic of Me but we were having such a great time I decided to post it anyway.

Hanging with brother and Car at my favorite time of day, evening on the ranch

Love this place, so beautiful.

My adorable Dad.
Great weekend, great company, great fun.

Graduation Party!

So it's been awhile since my last blog post but I wanted to share the pics from my graduation BBQ on memorial day weekend. Here I am enjoying the party with two of my beautiful cousins Sadie and Katie!!!

Being silly, love these girls!!!

With one of my very best friends Hillary (her family is always at the family parties, love them:))

Here I am with my favorite boy, Adden!!! I've been told this is the best Adden and Aunt Tara picture ever...what do you think?

For those who were unable to attend my graduation I hung my cap and gown on the hall closet so they could see how cool it is, and the background is cards my wonderful friends and family gave me.

Here I am with my Mom, the one who made it all happen.

Last but not least my adorable grandparents. :) My grandma Donna's mom graduated from college as did my Aunt Debbie, My sister Brianna, and my Cousin Tiana!!! My grandma is very proud of her educated posterity. :)
