July 4th

We have started a family tradition on the 4th....We gather at Trent and Amy's for a BBQ and fireworks. It is so much fun. This year I decided that the kids like the smoke bombs, snaps, and parachutes just us much if not more than the ones that light up.

I am still a little unclear while the kids love to get in the middle of the smoke. the all come out gasping for breath with red eyes. I guess one day they will learn.

What would the 4th be without making potions
Brooke was in charge of lighting off the fireworks that the kids would grab. Brooke was just as entertaining as everything else. Never a dull moment with Brooke!!

The Family
These three are TROUBLE!!! Yet they never seem to get enough of one another.
Front row seats to the wonderful firework display
Nothing better than a cuddle with this boy.

I will say another successful July 4th celebration. Thanks Amy for the good times.

Mueller Park Hike

Last Thursday we took the little kiddos hiking. We all started with smile, but ended extremely tired.

Amy our fearless wilderness guide
The Groupies

This kid loves the water.
A good hike, but tired little kids that moms had to carry down.
