4th of July... a little late!

For the 4th of July we both had a long weekend so we drove up to the mountains to see my parents. The weather was a pretty nice change from the heat and humidity here but it did sadly continue to rain throughout the weekend. For the 4th itself it was really nice, despite the rain, because the fireworks were not crowded and the traffic coming and going was not bad at all!

So. Much. Rain.

Ryan's mom, her boyfriend and Ryan's sister came up to join us for the weekend too. It was nice to have all of our family under one roof for a change! We had a nice time shopping on Main Street and eating the delicious buffet at the Cherokee Casino. Ryan and I also won a good bit of money playing roulette! A definite first, we usually leave in the red, never in the green.

Ryan was embracing his inner leprechaun while we shopped.

My mom got Ryan and I tickets to see Jeff Dunham ages ago so the three of us went to the show after the buffet dinner. He was hilarious!!! The best part of the show was easily when he messed up with Bubba Jay, went on a huge tangent from that and then forgot where he was and just kept winging it. It was uncensored and absolutely hilarious... the three of us were laughing so hard we were crying! Even though we were up there in terms of seats I loved seeing him live!

I also got myself a Peanut bobblehead (it was all that was left merchandise wise, that area got severely picked) which to the chagrin of all around me I keep playing with. It talks!

It was also nice to be reunited with the Dup. I think she missed us...

But she adores my little brother too!

And I will never say no to family time. This was probably the last chance my family had to see Ryan before he deploys and I made sure to force him into some pictures. Tough cookies my love. :P We had quality family time, sparklers, laser pointers and puppy time.

Of course being back home has mostly been more rain, heat and humidity... but I am glad to be a complete family of three (or two and a dog) once again for a little while longer.
