Fabulous 4th of July

Kyle's parents invited us over for a 4th of July slumber party that was so fun! Here is my photo re-cap of the weekend...


There was lots of smiling...

I had to include this because she looks so pretty!



Lots of BBQ (and other good food as well)...

And of course G'pa couldn't do it without a side kick!


Lots of unnessesary roughness...
We had to steal this shot when Rochelle was NOT looking (he's in trouble now)
Lots of Games....

Uncle Ty thought he was so cool in his Brazil shirt

Cade was so not interested in playing soccer without his bat.
Lot's of Birthday Fun to celebrate Big Cade (who stuck with the theme and turned 4)!

It's no fun being little!
I guess Adia has some pent up anger she needed to deal with!

Uncle Ty was very proud of himself for breaking open the pinata - victory!
Barrel racing - I didn't realize how hard that was for kids... of course Kenyon had no problem
Lots of noise (Happy Birthday dear Cade included)


Lots of little patriotic people...


after the flag raising ceremony we had a nice little parade


Lots of HUGS....
Kyle and 2 (out of 7) of his sisters


Lots of Water...
for everyone besides Kaden they needed more than just the water fountain out front

Kyle and Adison - so cute!
Daddy and Avery in the kayak
Adison and Kenyon and baby Carson are all on this raft (as you can see Grandma is being very careful trying to keep them safe)...

Lots of little ouchies...
Uncle Ty helping Adison feel all better
(he didn't realize her lack of under clothing when he rescued her)...
And there was even more fun like Talking Tango, Volleyball (my favorite part), funny cousin moments, lizards losing tails and baby birds finding a special place in Grandpa's heart & river(yes, you should totally ask him).
THANK YOU G'MA and G'PA - We had a BLAST!!! And we hope you still LOVE us even though we tease too much, have too many kids that make too many messes and we don't know how to let anything go. We sure love you!

Looks like you guys had a blast! I can't believe how beautiful Paul and Jenny's place is. Love that outdoor kitchen with the river view . . . oh ya, and the kids were cute too. :)

It looks like you captured all the fun and great times had by all. I almost feel like I was there seeing all the great pictures you got. Love the picture of Jenny. Their place is beautiful and a great place to hangout.
