I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. The Hall gals were excited because we got to have daddy to ourselves for two whole days! The actual 4th here in Iowa was a little cold and rainy. Okay a lot cold and rainy and it put a damper on some of our plans. However Sunday was a much better day and we got to swim, eat outside on our deck, and just do the summer thing. Daddy practically smoked up the whole neighborhood with some new hickory chips he bought for the grill but they sure made the burgers taste good. I think the girl's favorite part was when Byron spent after dinner on Saturday lighting up "snakes" (you know, the old fashion fireworks that turn into an ash tube that looks like a snake). Every time he lit one Grace would scream "Snake, snake!!" We never could decide if she thought it was a real snake.
