4th of July in P-burg

We went down to spend the 4th of July with Bobby's family this year and had a great time. And wouldn't you believe it? We didn't even make it to see David for some tropical sno! Unheard of! Usually I can't on us dropping at least 20 bucks on those babies.

I've written a lot about Pittsburg. It's where Bobby's family hails from and we love to visit family there. Molly and her family are moving away from there soon and we are going to miss them so much! Here's some of my previous posts about Pittsburg:

Family Reunion BBQ

It was the usual cast of characters plus a new dog masquerading as a horse. My father-in-law just bought a Great Dane! Sophie was in heaven. That kid is a dog-lover. I don't know where she gets it. Franny couldn't stand to have them near her. They are all good dogs with the exception of my father-in-law's pride and joy, the infamous Buster. A small but wily Jack Russell Terrier who just won't quit. Any time Sophie or any of the other grandchildren gets near him, he growls menacingly. I really don't like that dog. (By the way, the JR Terrier that Nicole and Sophie are hugging on is not Buster- that's Kiki. We like her.)




A trip to Poppy's house always means rides on the lawn-mower, tractor, 4-wheelers, and dirt bike. The girls had a blast. I especially love the one of Franny with her uncle Wes. He is so cute with our girls!



And of course there's the pond, providing hours upon hours of free entertainment. Sophie wasn't crazy about swimming in the pond, but Franny had the time of her life, despite the excess number of giant catfish.




The last night we were there we went with Larry to eat at a new place in town called Freddy's. We all ate outside in the scorching heat because my nephew Jacob didn't want to wear a t-shirt. It ended up being perfect, because our three and a half families were the only ones crazy enough to sit outside, so we could let our kids be rowdy and talk loud and have fun together. After that Niki and Morgan and Justin joined the rest of us and we went to see Wall-E. Franny was really excited because she got to sit next to her older cousin Zoe (who couldn't be any sweeter) for the whole movie.
