4th of July Weekend!

This weekend was the best. No doubt about it!
In between getting in a good amount of hours at work, I spent a ton of time with family, some of which were in from out of town. After driving home from my grandparents Friday night with the fresh smell of a campfire on us, Vince said, "Hey, I had a lot of fun!" And I responded with, "Did I really just hear you say that after 7 hours spent with my family?" And he said, "SEVEN HOURS?!" Time flies by when you have good company. (This is not to imply my family is not fun, they totally are the best.)
My grandma felt compelled to give Devin a bath after I admitted I don't bathe her very often.

Saturday morning we went shooting where I killed it, seriously. I couldn't believe it. We did a competition where we had to hit 10 pieces of 4 inch 2x4s that were set up in a line, and you had two shots per wood. For a better time you had to kind of run between shots (the wood was far enough away to not stand in one spot) and I got the exact same time as my grandpa, and he got one more shot than me. Now I need to practice and beat him! I think this is beginners luck though since I haven't shot since I was like 12. 
Her squished cheeks were too cute, I couldn't stop laughing. 

After that, my dad, uncle, Vince and I went for a mountain bike ride while Devin napped with the rest of the fambam. Riding with friends is fun, but family is even better! 
Vince is getting ready for the Bike Olympics this evening, Devin is sleeping naked with the fan directed on her because it's been so hot, and I'm ready for a nap myself with Roxi! It's weird to be in a quiet house after being around family and noises for hours.
Annnnnd then she was over it. 

Added after I wrote the above: We ended up going to the Bike Olympics for a bit and hung out with one of our favorite ladies!
