Wow, what a weekend! Long, holiday weekends are usually the best kind of weekends out there, and this one was no different for us. Not only did we celebrate the 4th with friends and family, but we also got to celebrate a wedding in Dripping Springs with some dear family friends we’ve known for 20 years!
We woke up Sunday morning and met up with my parents at their house before driving into Austin for Kayla and Evan’s wedding in Dripping Springs!
After drinks and games, we headed inside for dinner and dancing! Everything was decorated so beautifully. They did such an amazing job with the vibrant color scheme.
Now I have to brag about dinner for a minute. Oh my goodness. Best wedding food I’ve ever had. I’m still thinking about the delicious maple almond glaze on the salmon! I’m going to attempt to recreate it soon. There was also macaroni and cheese, veggies and a herb marinated chicken! But to me, the salmon stole the show with the mac and cheese coming in a close second. Now I’m hungry.
We had such a blast and it was great to see Kristin and Kayla! I even managed to steal the bride for a quick picture.
We left around 9:00am, pit stopped for breakfast at Bucee’s and were back in Sugar Land by noon for a day of relaxing by the pool. But first, a 4th of July photo shoot!
It was too hard to choose just one or two to share, so y’all get all of these!
Meena came over to lay out and go swimming with me! Emily had to work and couldn’t join us until later in the day, so we had to sip on some sangria and enjoy the sun without her.
But she got there in time for dinner and fireworks!
Chloe LOVED the sparklers. She wanted to hold them so bad. Seeing as though she probably would have grabbed the flame, I left the sparkler-ing to mommy and daddy!
It was an amazing 4th of July weekend and I’m sad that we’re back at life as usual. We like having daddy home with us for long weekends!
Now I’m off to the gym! I’m subbing a step and spin class today. Gotta burn off all the wedding and 4th of July food!
