24th of July

This year for the 24th of July we did the usual and headed over to GG's and Great Pa's for a BBQ and the Butlerville Days firework show. Of course we had to do some of our own fireworks too.

We had a great time but my camera died before I could snag a family pic:(

Silver Lake

Silver Lake has become one of our favorite spots we usually try to come here at least once a year. It is close, convenient and so beautiful. The only down side is the MOSQUITOES!

Dinner in the Mountains

With Dave and Auburn here we decided it would be fun to go have dinner in the mountains. We are so glad they came to see us the kids have so much fun together.

Kyson loved to put this stick in the fire and walk around with it smoking. I was afraid he was going to touch someone with it!

To finish off the night we roasted marshmallows and had some s'mores.

4th of July on the 3rd

Because the 4th was on a Sunday this year we celebrated it on Saturday the 3rd. We started off with our neighborhood parade. The kids decorated themselves and their Escalade! They looked so cute driving around in it.

Later that night everyone came over for a BBQ, fireworks and homemade ice cream.
Of course Kyson had to be right there and help Dad light all of the fireworks.

DALC came to visit us for the 4th of July and got here right before the BBQ. The kids were so excited to see each other.

The kids had a blast. I think we will be stuck home for the next few years doing fireworks here. Happy 4th of July!

Now that summer is here we are going to be spending a lot of time at Aunt Breanne's pool! Suzie and Drae came and met us to go swimming.

Kyson is so funny he is in his goggles 24/7 at the pool.
