Fantastic Fourth!

full of time with family and doesn't get better than that!
First of all,we had a blast at my in-laws annual 4th of July party! We had some rain throughout the day, but the kids didn't seem to mind and neither did we :)
Bella, Brody, Jacob and Parker...see they are swimming in the rain and could care less!

Jacob and Blake! This little guy is precious and we don't get to see him very often,
so we were SO happy they came!

My sister-in-law, Michelle, Juliette, Gran, Adeline and Jacob!
All dressed in their festive 4th attire!!!

Jacob and Justin with their Pop and DeDe! This is the annual picture spot :) The families gather around DeDe's cute decor and snap photos, great idea right?!
We have a picture from EVERY year...special memory!

Brandon and I with Gran(his Dad's mother)

Ahhh and we were so happy that my Uncle, Aunt and their kids came too!
That's Gabi, Jacob, Aaron and Dominic!

There's the picture spot again :)
Aunt Paulette and DeDe with their two, yougest grandchildren...
Juliette and Justin!

Sweet Daddy(my hubby) with little man, Justin!
Every time someone would pull out their camera, he grinned and said "cheese"!

DeDe, Justin and Aunt Laura
So happy they were there too! They live in College Station, TX
so it's nice to see them when they make it this way :)

WARNING: Not sure why I am making this face in the picture below??! Maybe you can help me figure it out??! Ha, I believe I was trying to get Justin to smile, so in the process, I decided to make a goofy face, myself?!
Anyway, after our in-laws party on the 3rd, on the 4th we headed over to our friends, Tarah and Matt, for some fireworks, delicious food and MORE FUN!!!

There's that silly face I warned you about!!
But there's our two, handsome littlest men, Justin and Hudson! They were wearing matching 4th of July shirts, so I had to get a picture :)

Some Splashin' FUN! Ticer, Luke, Jacob and Toby...I really think they stayed on this huge waterslide for SIX, STRAIGHT HOURS!!!

He slid for soooo long that he had "burn" marks all over his chest from rubbing his skin completely RAW and then he still didn't want to stop....

Oh my two, sweet boys! Hilarious and So totally different! I love you both more than words...glad we were able to make some special memories this weekend! Love you :)

Hope you all had a very Happy 4th of July,
full of family, friends and FUN too!!
