July 4th partying

From July 2- 3…..

Abbi was up bright and early hitting the coffee….

Pretty soon the rest of the extended family was arriving for the “4th of July-ish” annual celebration.

Later that afternoon we went out on a longer ride while Abbi “napped”, or at least tried to.

Bruce and his family had brought all their toys so we followed them down some paths and ended up in a large nearby park.

After nap time someone caught her very first fish.  She couldn’t have been more excited! Such a big girl.

When you feed the fish and no one else really fishes your pond, you catch a lot of fish! They had these fish at the same time.

A different pair of fish.  These sisters were super proud!

We went out for a catfish dinner and on the way home picked up some firecrackers.  The kids always like doing sparklers.

With our $20 budget from Dad we managed to get some pretty good things – some Roman Candles and a few things that gave a decent “show”, mostly the kids like sparkle and minimal pop.

I finally convinced Abbi to give a firecracker a try.

Sunday morning – breakfast going on in the back and Lilli and Kacey were oblivious.  Two tired girls.  Summer is exhausting!

Abbi was done and wasn’t much in the mood for a grandkid picture.

And on the way back to Nashville – two tired kiddos.  Two back to back weeks of Grandparent camps will wear you out!
