Fourth Fun.......

Most July 4th's we have spent with family and traveling. This year we decided to stay home and have our own little family fun day. We brought out the new Slip n Slide and let the kids have fun while I was preparing some food for a BBQ.
Gotta love the expressions on their faces!

Even the hubby got into the action!

..But not Kady. She wanted NO part of it!
I thought about going myself, but I think I was more afraid of breaking my neck or busting a gut!

Jess and I carried out our kitchen table, since we don't own any patio furniture as of yet, and enjoyed our BBQ dinner. Tri tip, corn on the cob, mac n cheese, baked beans, salad and rolls.

It was so nice to just be Us and enjoying the day......and helping to build memories!

Lights in the Sky......

On the fourth, we drove into town and watched as the fireworks were launched into the sky. Kady didn't mind the loud booms and pops. She just sat on daddy's lap and stared at the "pretty lights". Jake was all about the "Ohhh's and Awww's" and "Whoa", after every one!

Birdie Update....

The last post I did was pictures of the baby birds on our front porch about 2-3 weeks ago. It's amazing how fast these feathered friends grow each day. I check on them every once in a while like a momma does, to make sure no little birdie fell out of the nest. They are not flying yet and they still wait on momma bird to feed them. Look at how much they've changed! Sooo cute!

"Birdie, birdie in the sky"......

Look what we have right outside our front porch.
Barn Swallow babies! There are four. It's been fun for the kids and I to watch as the mommy & daddy bird fly back and forth to the nest to feed them..
