Happy Birthday, America!

Mr. Kingston's brother came to visit from Maryland for the 4th of July weekend and we had a blast! We actually stayed at their parents' house from Thursday evening until Monday morning. Mr. Kingston's friend who is in the Army was also in town.

Thursday evening was spent at one of the boys' old favorite hangouts. On Friday, we lazed around, went swimming, cooked carne asada, and stayed up late just talking and catching up. On the 4th, we went to see our friend's new house, then cooked out and had more people over. I got the brilliant idea to jump off the roof into the pool after Mr. Kingston and his brother did and scratched up my shin pretty badly. That's the last time I do that. On Sunday, we did a lot more relaxing and swimming. Mr. Kingston and I ran some errands, and then he made an awesome dinner for all of us: marinated steak and chicken skewers. Mmmmm!! This morning we said good bye to the brother and his girlfriend until the wedding in October. I'm so glad we got to spend so much time with them.

All in all it was great weekend of naps, delicious food, cold beer, swimming, and friends. Now that the weekend is over, it's back to the grind (and the gym) for me. Bonus: Paisley is worn out from playing with the parents' dog all weekend - no doubt she'll be lazy for a day or two.
