RIB, White, & Blue

Our 4th of July was spent at the lake with good friends, family, & lots of food. It was the 2nd annual Rib Cook-Off. The teams started at 11:30am, and time was called at 5:30pm. The kids had a blast and were exhausted by the time we went home.

Fourteen teams participated in the cook off this year! Some had matching shirts, secret spices…but they all had major smack talk with each other :)

While the teams got to work, the kids had so much to do – two kiddie pools, a tent with toys, the canal to swim in, and water balloons. The snowball machine was also a big hit – especially for mamma ;)

I thought it would be miserably hot; however, the weather was perfect. We were setup under some huge trees, and the breeze from the lake made the day enjoyable. It was so relaxing!

Then the crowning moment came when it was time to present the finished ribs to the judges. Seth & Henry placed second last year, so they were trying for that #1 spot this go round. Everyone wanted their name next to the “2015” spot on the rib plaque.

It was an awesome day filled with good weather, good food, and plenty laughs! We ended the night watching some fireworks, but the girls fell asleep soon after in their beds. Happy 4th everyone!
