Friday: Lemonade stand making made from an old fence that ended in a outdoor pizza party and discussion of all the things we could sell - from lemonade and home made cookies to the culdesac egg cache (we do have 10 chickens between us). Personally, Penny's eggs are like gold to me, but everyone objected when I wanted to set the price at $5.00 per egg.
Saturday: The boys spent all day down at Crystal Cove, giving me a day to pay bills, organize my closet while catching up on Southern Charm, and cleaning the house until Nicole came over with wine and we had an afternoon backyard cocktail hour. Boys came back for a hot minute only to get ready for BMX racing so I decided to take a nap and then Nicole and I picked the wine drinking back up watching the sun go down while hitting balls at the driving range and eating the rest of the pizza from last night.
Sunday: All day garage cleaning with an after swim and celebration of finding the pool toy pump which meant welcoming the tangerine slice to the pool party.
Monday: The Fourth. Bloody mary morning, pool party and grilled hamburgers in the afternoon. Wine, blankets on the grass, ladder toss, corn hole, taco cart and hot dogs in the evening with friends and family, sipping our drinks and waiting for night to fall and the fireworks to start.
