fourth of july

Our Fourth of July in pictures…

a little late, but at least it is still July!  😉

We started the day at the fireworks stand. It was the boys first time buying fireworks. Levi was so excited as he picked up all the different fireworks thinking they were all candy. Big letdown when he found out you couldn’t eat them!

In the evening we hosted a Fourth of July party for Joel’s family. We had a gourmet hotdog bar just like we did at Griffin’s first birthday. Hotdogs are always a hit around here…I’m glad because hotdogs are easy.

There was lots of fun with cousins.

And even some brotherly love. It was a good day.

The older cousins were squirting the adults with water guns while we were eating. We made a “no water guns inside the boundaries of the tiki tourches” rule. The oldest cousin made a sign to make sure all the other cousins obeyed the rule. It was all his idea. So funny.

James and his fiance, Liz, got to join us for Fourth of July this year. Yay! This was our first time meeting Liz and she is just as great as James said she was. I am so excited to have a new sister-in-law. How did I get so lucky to have so many fun sisters-in-law?!

Levi isn’t a fan of loud noises. He was a little worried about the whole firework thing, so he played it safe and wore his “ear plugs”. 🙂

Uncle James always gets lots of attention when he is home!

We finished the evening with s’mores, a few more fireworks, jeep riding, and sparklers. And then we made it to the fireworks in town just as they were beginning.

I love July fourth. It is one of my favorites!
