4th Of July Weekend

The above picture is the only actual picture from the 4th of July because I forgot my memory card ... boo!

4th of July weekend was busy, busy, busy! Saturday the 3rd was Grampy's 80th birthday celebration. His party was at a winery with a catered dinner, so the party didn't start until that evening. Our neighbors were celebrating the 4th a day early since a few people were going to be gone, so we all pitched in and ordered the bouncy water slide thingy! The kids played on that thing all day and had a blast!

After playing all morning and into the late afternoon it was time to get ready for Grampy's big bash!

She was the first one ready [cuz hopefully she could sit still the longest] ... but I don't have pictures of the other kids after they were all ready & cute!

Very fun weekend. The kids were able to catch our block fireworks after Grandpa's party ... they were stoked. On the 4th we went over to Ray's Aunt & Uncle's house and swam, grilled out, & had a great time! We went over to his other Aunt's house for fireworks. His Aunt's neighbors go to Reno every year and spend 100 of dollars on some [illegal] fireworks ... they put on a heck of a show for us [well for themselves & we reap the benefits]!


  1. Love all the pics!!! Especially the ones of Kai all dolled up...she looks so grown!
