Happy 4th of July!

This one will not be one soon forgotten.

We had a great time swimming and eating at Sue's house with the DiBens.  It was beautiful before for a few hours but then the rain started.  My favorite part was actually sitting in the carport talking while the rain came down.

Then we headed to Erin's house for the annual Thunder on Hueytown now called Thunder on Mimosa.  And we had a great time playing and visiting with friends.  Then for the fireworks - always the best part.  Stephen mentioned we were sitting pretty close and the kids all sat in front of us.  And, yes, we may have been sitting a little close.  One of the big fireworks tipped and it got a little scary for a minute!  It tipped back and Tyler went and put it back up straight at which point it fell forward...towards us!  EVERYONE RAN!  Except, Isaac, Mary, Avery, and Maci!  They were amazed how close the fireworks were.  Funny how when you are a kid you don't realize that wasn't supposed to happen and they were in real danger!  I finally got them up and running to the back but it was all over by that point.  After that we proceeded with the show with much caution.  Got more bricks out to steady the fireworks.  And they were fantastic and BIG.  It was raining fireworks on us.  I love it.

2014 - Crazy how big Noah has gotten this year!

Eden and her Jay-man!  They love to fight!

It was a GREAT 4th - spending the whole day with the BEST of Friends and Family.  Couldn't ask for a better time.
