weekend in the country

J and I headed out to his parents place on Saturday morning. J hosts an annual 4th of July party for family and friends, complete with a fireworks show. I made buffalo chicken dip and everyone loved it! The weekend was filled with family, friends, corn hole, bocce ball, burgers, hot dogs and corn on the grill and fireworks. J lives near the lake, and you can see the fireworks from his parents' house, so we gathered outside to watch those and then the show continued with J's personal firework show. His were so good that people even stopped along the road to watch!

Sunday was J's dad's birthday, and we had a big celebration at his grandmother's house. Unfortunately, I didn't take my camera to the party, but there was PLENTY of yummy food. I definitely ate too much. Overall, it was a beautiful weekend in the country!
