4th of July Weekend

I not very good at this blog thing :/ I kind of go a while between blogs. Hopefully i'll get better at it!

We went down to Benson for the 4th of July weekend. I absolutely loved it! All the family was was so much fun :) I loved being around all the wee ones. Its so much fun to play with them. And I love being able to hang out with my brothers and sisters. Each time im around them I can tell im more and more of my weird self around them and I am growing closer to them! I wish I would have taken more pictures of this weekend :/ 

Saturday night we went to a bbq with the Barneys. There was some good food there! Then the storm was coming..i love it! Sunday Chadly and I went to church with mom and dad. I actualy got up there and bore my testimony. Its crazy how sometimes the spirit just takes over and I do things like go bare my testomony..especially when its not even my ward. But it felt very nice to do it. And I was glad Chadly and mom and dad could be there to hear it :) 

My sister Brooke and I made homemade twix! they were pretty delish. I love cooking with brookie. I felt all cool that I made something for the family haha. It wsa especially fun when we were cooking cause in the kitchen it was me, Brooke, Shelley, and Nicole. Just me and my sisters hanging out :) ...They are prob a little unsure about me being in their family now that my true wierdness is coming out :) haha jk. sorta :)

Chadly and I went on a nice drive around Benson. Im obsessed with going on drives. Im pretty much just obsessed with Benson. Its out in the middle of no where and I love it! I love thats its all scenery. I need to take a pic one of these days and post it for all to see! Each time we go to Benson im always bugging chadly to go on a drive with me. So he finally gave in!! ..prob cause its his parents new car he got to drive. haha. I loved going for the drive and just being around all scenery. The farther we got the more green it got. I was so pretty. 

Then when we got back ..I wanted to be outside more! It drives him crazy too cause whenever we go I always want to go in the backyard and be outside haha. So he wouldnt go with me. So I asked my niece Madi to go on the swings with me. Then more of the kiddies came out and mom and Shelley and brookie  and nicole came out. We were out ther for what felt like hours. It was great :) Just playing around with them and then Madi and I found a was kind of gross. 

Monday on the 4th of July we went to the parade in Benson. I was pretty much just as excited as the kids were! I love Benson and all the small town stuff about it :) 

Me and Chadly and our niece Braelyn :)

I took a bunch of other crazy pictures with some of my other nieces and nephews..they are on dads phone though.

We came back home monday evening and had a bqq with some friends. Again...I wish I would have taken pictures. It was soo much fun!! We all just hung out and ate. We were able to set up some chairs across the street from our house and watch the fireworks from Schnepfarms. We also had a scorpian that wanted to hang out with us haha. It got super windy and it was lighting behind us..but I loved hanging out with my girls and some of their boys :) Im so grateful for these girls!! Kaitlyn, Kelsey, Karley and Kristen...I love you :)
