Hey 'bout I light this one myself?

Wow...that's dangerous - Parker and his fireworks

Wow...are you sure they should be doing that? - Aunt Keren

I LOVE this - Cousin/Nephew - Mikey

Now...what's our plan about getting the adults distracted?

Fire...Fire...Come On...Start - What they don't see is us ADULTS watching!

I CAN NOT believe that I WASTED that much FOOD - Griffin trying to cope with the food loss!

Wow...I'm kinda liking this "Eating Out(side)" - Carson

You can have your fireworks...just don't mess with my food - Preston
What do you do when you have FIVE KIDS on the 4th of July? Bring the party and fireworks to you! And...that's just what we did! We invited our family and friends to our house for a backyard cookout and fireworks show! It was a BLAST and I think we might just have started our very own "Family Tradition" We all had lots of fun! We had more food than any of us could possibly eat! Thank you guys for bringing all that "GREAT STUFF" Grant - thank you for cooking the hot dogs and hamburgers oh...and the brauts! They were delicious! After the big meal we enjoyed homemade ice cream with all the fixins' (Thanks Aunt Candy for making that extra special!) We finished the evening with SMORES and a GREAT fireworks show. Who knew how much Uncle Mike LOVED fireworks and how much fun Mikey would be as our entertainment host!! We were all so glad he did because we enjoyed some beautiful ones! Once again...we are amazed and truly THANKFUL how our family and friends are so willing to come to our rescue and make our lives so special! Love, Jenn

P.S. THANK YOU Crystal for helping me "Weed Eat" the entire yard for the party! I'd be LOST without you! I Love You - My sister, my friend, and my neighbor for life...remember our promise...ha ha :) :)
