4th of July

We invited our families over on Independence Day for a barbecue, fireworks, and backyard fun.  With both sides there we had quite a crowd- 14 adults and 12 kids! Jon's mom joined us and it was nice having her there!  (The Henry family was at a reunion in the bay area, and Erik was in Seattle--we missed you guys!)
Becca used an idea she found on Pinterest and transformed Aaron's "old" shirts into this cute dress for Sadie and tank top for herself!  Such a crafty girl (:
 Cousin Emma took these pictures of baby Tate (;
Lydia & Audrey were all decked out from going to a parade earlier that day.
Tate & Grammie
Time for food:
Josh & his sisters
Red, White, & Blue (:
Cohen & Griffin
Miss Macey
Our backyard is coming together more this summer with the little details Josh has been working on...
...the fountain area...
...which the kids couldn't resist getting in!
...& the new-to-us hot tub.
Amy, Jon
Macey, Emma, & Ethan
Erin, Lydia, Dylan, & Audrey
Grandpa & Miss Em
We set off some fireworks in our driveway, and we also could see the big fireworks from PK Park & Alton Baker park off in the distance.
Tyler, Aaron, Becca, Cohen, & Sadie
Right after I took the previous picture, one of the neighbors set off a cool bottle rocket and I took a picture of the kids' reaction.  I just love that they all have the same expression. (:
Getting ready for sparklers:
Our family minus Tate, who went to sleep before the fireworks started.
