Our July 4th holiday weekend

Once again we were at the lake for the July 4th holiday with all the cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and great grandparents. It was a good time for everyone--hot, but good. Here's a little bit of what it looked like.

The first day we were at Nana's, where all the kids played hard in the water. I LOVE seeing them on the rafts together, because I know it'll be so fun to look back on one day.

The next day there was even more playing in the water at Grandmother and Granddaddy's house. Once again the inflatable boat was popular as well as the water guns. There was also a good bit of fishing, but it was the daddies who caught the big ones of the day (and no pictures to prove it).

Later in the day we rode in the boat all the way to Clear Creek to visit even more aunts, uncles and cousins. 2 of the boys fell asleep on the boat, so the others played without them.

(Quite possibly my favorite pic of her from this summer so far.)

And then we went home to celebrated the boys' birthdays (they're born exactly a year and a week a part) with the whole family. Sad to say that because of this, Mac hasn't ever really had a "true" birthday party. We're hoping to change that soon though.

And then it was time for fireworks. We celebrated both at Nana's on the true 4th with sparklers, and then watched the Duncan Bridge show from Grandmother's front porch on the 5th. I'm combining all my firework/sparkler pics together in to one section.

And that pretty much sums up our 4th of July weekend. Hope yours was good as well!
