We had a fun 4th of July. Originally we had decided to make no plans for the 4th, we just wanted to hang out and swim and just relax and enjoy the holiday. That quickly changed with a few phone calls and texts and soon a family BBQ was planned.

After dinner we made a little time for the cousins to jump in the pool.
Instead of going anywhere for fireworks we went for the cheesy firework stand fireworks…and it was perfect. Here we are waiting for the show to start
It was windy that night so there was a little dust in the air.
The sparklers were a hit…with everyone but Ham.

The cousins didn’t mind a short pool time on the 4th, because the Saturday before they spent the day with us.

Roo had fun taking care of Miss N.
The Boyz sporting the goggle look.

And Roo has her own way of wearing them.
LaLa was going for a much more stylish look.
After spending the day with us Miss N decided to take it upon herself to keep J in line.
I think she did a good job.
We might need more cousin days more often so she can really take care of him.
