The kids all had fun - yes even sour-faced Miles.
July 4th! On this day we met at a park for the "Olympics." We also had a picnic dinner there at the park. We didn't keep the kids up to watch fireworks. The only time Miles has been to fireworks was when he was 4 months old and he stayed asleep in our car the whole time. We did do smoke-bombs both before and after the 4th so the kids got to enjoy those.
Patriotic Miles and his cousins getting ready for the Parade of Kids.
Here the two boys are at the Olympics. This event was "candy spitting." My boys did pathetic. Which I guess is a good thing? :)
Of course medals were handed out to the super-stars.

We stayed at our friend's house and really had it quite nice there. They gave us their whole basement - complete with 2 rooms, a bathroom, and a playroom; plus the backyard had a tramp and sandbox that the boys loved. It was wonderful for us all. Emmy, too, loved it all - especially climbing up the slide all by herself. You can see how proud and happy she was!
A perfect picture of our very own Mowgli.
2 brothers - Joe and Ben. Aren't they happy, handsome guys?
Miles with his 2 adorable cousins - Katie and Emily. I don't know how Miles got so lucky! Like I mentioned, Miles loved all of his cousins and they were all so good with him.
So there it is. It was a wonderful time spent with a wonderful family.
