Can someone help me identify this plant?

Hi, first I'd like to just say hi before I make a request from anyone.
I've been gardening for about 2 or 3 years now and really like.
I thought this plant that comes back every summer in my front yard was Ice Plant, but I googled Ice Plant and it does not look the same at all
Here are some pictures.

Closer view, disregard the weeds below it haha, notice the succulent leaves though

Any help in the identification of this plant is welcomed.
Thank you!:D

P.S. Sorry the flowers are dead.

That's called Portulaca grandiflora, commonly known as "Moss Rose." A very popular and attractive plant. :)
