Weekend {recap}

On Saturday we had a great family get together at my sister & bf's house. My parents came up from Iowa to join the 3 siblings & their significant others. We had a fabulous dinner, plenty of wine & cocktails, & a late night fireworks show.
Here are some pictures of our fun little event!

Later on we met up with some friends to celebrate a birthday, which is where the giant cupcake was photographed. We even presented it with a flaming sparkler, but sadly my camera's battery did not make it that late in the evening.

Sunday was spent recovering & relaxing. Afterall, there's another B I G weekend heading our way. Hope you had a fun weekend & are looking forward to the 4th of July!
