I was really craving a warm slice of homemade bread so on Saturday I decided to try and make bread. I have never done it by myself and look how pretty they turned out! It was a easy white bread recipe and it turned out super great for my first time!

Friday night for our date night we pulled out our mattress into the living room and made a fort over it. We watched a couple movies and had a good old time! It was so much fun! We felt like kids again haha. We found out that hair ties, hair clips and the big kitchen clips that go on the fridge and keep chips fresh are amazing for making blanket forts. Just fyi.
Dan's parents have a week off every July so the whole Barzee family got together for a whole week! They haven't all been together for a little over five years so this was a big week for them. Our flight was at 7 a.m. on saturday. We drove to dad's work, caught the first trax at 6 a.m. and got to the airport around 6:08. We went to check our one bag and it was 63 lbs.! They wanted to charge us $100 extra for being over weight. So we hurried and stuffed stuff into my purse and Dan's backpack. We got down to 55 lbs. and the guy let us go. We got to security. Dan made it through but I took a little bit longer because for some reason, Dan put Pearson on my plane tickets...I have Barzee as my last name on all of my ID's now! So that was fun to explain to security haha. By now it was about 6:40. We walked speedily to our gate and they were boarding our section right when we got there. We literally walked on the plane! It was a close call. Our flight was 3 1/2 hours and I practically slept the whole way. We arrived in VA around one and hung our with the family the rest of the day. Sunday, Melissa and Albert blessed our new nephew, Mathis. He is SO cute! We had a wonderful sunday dinner and had good family time.
Monday we all piled in the cars and went to the metro to go to Washington DC! This is us having lots of fun on the metro.
Tuesday we went to a fun little water park in Purcellville and had a blast. It was so hot so swimming felt super good! After that we had a fun barbeque at Kim and Scott's house. They have an old plantation house that they fixed up and it is so cute! Grandpa Barzee also took us all on horse and buggy rides. Then all the grandkids put on a little talent show.
Wednesday, Dan and I went and did our own thing at a little town called Leesburg. We just walked around and went to a bunch of little shops. We went to a little cafe to have lunch and it was quite yummy! Once we got back, Dan and I were in charge of Barzee Olympics! We came up with a couple of games to play as a family and then made up funny awards for everyone afterwards. It was probably the highlight of the week. Everyone had so much fun!
The bottom part of this picture is water. It is reflecting the ceiling! Isn't that crazy!
We always try so hard to go on at least one date a week. Dan was always so good about us having fun dates while we were first dating and when we were engaged. He is so good at that! And guess what?? He still is like that even though we are married! SO GREAT! Our thing right now is miniature golf and going out to eat at Popeyes or Chick fil-a. It gets so competitive because it is something that we are both getting really good at. One time Dan decided to make a bet. He said, "If I win, I can pay for my concealed weapons license." (Which is about $50.) I said, "Ok. But if I win I get to go clothes shopping and spend $50!" It was such an intense game! And....we TIED! It was so funny. (He ended up getting his concealed weapons license anyway...)
For Dan's birthday I gave him a coupon to go golfing and to let me drive the cart. It was so much fun! We went early one morning and did nine holes. We had a wonderful time!
