July has been a super busy month for Rhett and I.We started the month out right, celebrating the Fourth of July with some wonderful friends down on the lake.
This delicious, fruit pizza was defiantly ate in one day. I would have to say I had two little girls who helped me with this. Dannah Jo and Kisor placed the fruit on the pizza. Isn't it beautiful?
Hammock Hangout, one of friends and Rhett decided to place several hammock in their backyard down by the lake. They named the backyard, Hammock Hangout.

What a beautiful sunset!
July 4th weekend, while watching fireworks down by the lake we received an important phone call. Rhett's Papa called, telling us he is taking Neena to the ER. We didn't ask any questions, we hopped in the truck along with Rhett sister, Heather and her husband, Jason. We took off to Rome to meet Rhett's parents along with Papa. We received bad news as soon as we walked in. The doctor came into the room telling us that Neena will more than likely not make it. We were all in shock. I mean two days before then, Cathi, Rhett's mom, Neena, and I were shopping in Rome for home decor' for my house. On July 3rd, Neena died. (This is a tear jerker) Neena was the most uplifting person to be around. She would give you the shirt off her back just to make sure you had something. She was the sweetest lady and anyone that was ever around her felt her love. The doctors labeled her death as cardiac arrest, but since she had a stroke 15 years ago we think it was another stroke. She was be missed by many people. All she wanted to see was her grandchildren to get married and since she had seen that as of, May 28th. She kept telling Heather and I that now she is looking forward to grandchildren. We miss Neena, but looking forward to seeing her again.
Since that all happened so suddenly, Rhett's uncle whom loves in New Jersey had to drive down the next day. Greg and Dale, decided to stay the rest of the week for all the following events. On the actual 4th of July, I had already planned a get together with Rhett's family and mine so we thought about cancelling it, but Papa stayed strong and still wanted me to have it. It was a time of relief to get out of the house for most of us.
