Happy 4th!

Being outside celebrating the 4th yesterday made me realize just how much I'm going to miss all this heat and humidity.
About none.

I am going to miss the friends that we celebrated with like crazy. Miss them like crazy, not that we celebrated like crazy....or maybe we did because we all slept in until 930 this morning.

What's wrong with this picture?
Oh, I know, the fact that my 2 1/2 year old insisted on sitting in Beckett's high chair and bumping him to the "big boy" chair. Thanks for being such a gentleman about it B.

Beckett and Addison had so much fun on the slip and slide at Beckett's house.

Beckett, Anna, and Adam were thrilled and had no qualms about getting soaked.

Addison was a little more tentative.
I don't think she understands the whole concept yet of the slip and SLIDE....more just the slip.

She would yell, "Slide"...and then proceed to crouch under the water and WALK all the way to the end. She likes to live on the edge like that.

After we had lots of fun getting soaked, we dried off and got ready for fireworks. We had plans to go watch fireworks with everyone else in the Woodlands near Market Street, but our friends, Julie and Jamie, invited us to go with them to their little "secret" place.

So I can't tell you where we went, but maybe you can figure it out. I will tell you that there was a lot of space to run 18 holes worth, and they were nice enough to let you bring your own coolers, you know for like, wine water and stuff.

We will definitely be coming back.

Graham was a little worn out, but was still a good sport.
This was my best effort to get a little brother/sister shot.
Turned out nicely, don't you think?
Addison had a BLAST running around and just hanging out watching the fireworks show. I think she said pretty about 56 times.

Hope that you and your family had a great holiday weekend!

it's almost scary how similar the personalities of our oldest children are. ava kicked out a 13 month old from the high chair all weekend. so annoying. addison is BEAUTIFUL though and that little man is about the cutest thing ever. wish i could squeeze him!

Looks like a good fourth of July. So...that is where we grew up seeing the fireworks here. Most of us who are still here still go there. :) It's a great little "secret" since the woodlands has gotten so big now.
