Holiday weekend fun

I can't believe it's Monday already...this weekend went by way too fast!!! We still didn't have power at our house on Friday, but that wasn't too bad because we were out enjoying the day. I went to the parade with Alecia and her family.

Our church's praise team had a float and they sang and played as they went down the route. It was my favorite float

A good reminder for all of us

After the parade, we went back to Alecia's house. We relaxed for a while and then had a delicious lunch of grilled chicken and grape salad. It's a good thing so many people grill out for the holiday because we didn't have power! It finally came back around 3 on Friday, so we were without for almost 48 hours. We decided to go to the township park and walked around for a while. We went to the car show, watched the tractor pull, and just enjoyed the day. Mike called me when he got out of work so I went over to his house. We went to another friend's house to watch fireworks. A bunch of friends had gone and bought a ton of fireworks, so we launched them off for about 2 hours! It was a lot of fun!!

After church on Sunday, Mike and I went up to Big Star Lake. His friend's family has a trailer up there so we went to meet them. We spent the day riding the sea doos and just sitting around being lazy. We had dinner up there and then went out for ice cream on the way home. It was a great way to spend the holiday weekend!
