Friday Favorites

Happy day to you!  I hope you all had a lovely week.  Ours was fast and busy, so it will be nice to just chill for the holiday weekend.  We’ll grill up some food and have some fun outdoors.  As far as fireworks go, we’re hoping to see them from a distance at our house; hopefully it’s enough of a distance that Quinn can sleep through them! 🙂

Sassy McGee will be quite upset if the fireworks wake her up!
