4th of July Festivities

So since Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, it really felt different from the normal holiday.  Also, I have spent many a year "down the shore, hon" for the 4th, but this year we decided to stay home. 
We went to the carnival the Saturday before and we planned to go to a cookout (#21on the Sand Pail List) at the in-laws on the actual day. I decided that this would be a great time to tackle #22 ....Make Lightened Dirt Dessert.  It was a lot more time consuming than I had initially thought (story of my life), with the grinding of the Oreos the most tedious and messiest!  But here she is....

The recipe called for cream cheese, which no one had ever heard of before, but either it really was good, or everyone was just being nice, because there wasn't a lot left....LOL

We headed over to the in-laws in the morning, so Maggie could maybe spend some time in their pool.

The in-laws have an above ground pool, but they bought a little blow up one for Mags....She was mostly interested in the fountain it had when you placed the hose in a certain spot.

Then after lunch we tried to put Mags down for a little nap, but she wasn't really having it... So we got her up and hung out the rest of the afternoon (mostly indoors because it was TOO hot!!!).  Then we had dinner and Mags loved the cheeseburger and Mommy's dirt.  We had a great time!
Hope you're having a great day!
