4th of July

Happy 4th to Everyone!  We had a great one, what about you?

We got to celebrate the 4th of July twice! On the 3rd and the 4th!  Isn't it such a funny way that we celebrate America's Indepence?  By blowing up things and eating lots of food!    "I normally don't eat a hot dog, hamburger and a bratwurst, but it is the 4th of July!" (Jim Gaffigan)  
We had a great time, the girls loved all the treats, lots of water to play in, fireworks, and staying up late.

Maya and Norah were both mesmerized by daddy blowing up things!  Neither of them were very scared either, which was fun.

On the 3rd we went to a neighborhood party with Travis and Shanna at a club house.  It was beautiful!  So very well decorated, tons of great food, nice people. and so many fun areas to swim!
