The 4th of July, 2015

There is nothing better than spending the fourth with family, right?  We had a really good day and night!  We went to a ward breakfast that morning and the kids had fun playing in the backyard - plus the cousins had come as well and so that made it all the more fun and better.  Then we got ready and went to a community pool in Joe and Britt's neighborhood.  It was a good morning for swimming and we had a great time - the kids especially!

Happy at the pool!

Chillin' at the pool!

Loving every minute of it!

The boys went off the diving board for their first times.  Awesome - and scary!

Jonas was a nut!  He was super freaky and just about gave me a hard attack!  He barely jumped out from the board. I was sure he was going to hit it on one of his jumps.  He got a serious talking to and then improved after that.  Aiyiyi.  But super fun for the boys!

After swimming we went back to Jim and Diana's and had lunch and got ready for dinner that evening (Jim, Diana and cousin Grace were at Wicked).

 I had the kids make some festive strawberries.

 Fun, fun!

We had a nice dinner and then ate some patriotic treats:  a flag cake frosted by Jonas and decorated by Miles, and a red/white/blue jello pie.

We went to a fireworks show that night and that was neat and fun as well.  Lucy fell asleep in about 10 seconds after the show.  :)

It was a Happy July 4th!
