I need to use my crockpot more.

I always forget about it but when I use it I love the results. I decided to drag it out this morning and make BBQ Pulled Pork. Yum! My parents are arriving today from North Carolina and dinner should be ready just as they pull in. I am going to serve it with cole slaw and corn on the cob. I haven't done this before, so I hope it turns out. In other news, Connor had his first sleepover Tuesday night with his buddy Zachary who he has known since they were 3 and in preschool together. My son, Zachary helped them build a tent with sheets and blankets in the basement (which is finished) and then camped out with them. They had a blast!

We are gearing up for our big July 4th BBQ tomorrow. My friends Nicole and Erika will be here as well as several of our neighbors. Lots of fun, food and fireworks! Eddie and JR put on quite the show when it gets dark. The kids love it!

Got an exciting email this morning about a new idea book by Memory Makers called Fabulous Friendships. It should be hitting stores soon. I have a layout in there and I can't wait to take a look!
Ok, I need to go clean something. Have a great day!
