{24th Celebration}

It's hot here friends.
The ladies have taken to using ice packs to cool off.
I thought it was kinda smart and cute,
till I saw Sienna rub it on her 'hot feet' then rub it on her face.
Um, ya.
We had us a mighty good time on the 24th. My brother in law Devin, and I both share a Birthday on the 30th. (Jot it down, it's kind of a big deal). We decided this year to throw a 24th/b-day bbq with our fams. I'm really bummed that I didn't bother to get my camera out during the bbq, so I will paint you a picture via the blog. The ladies were dancing, the boys were wrestling, we were eating. I mean there was a lot of food to be eaten, shrimp, steak, pork chops, potatoes, salads, desserts...it was a little gross. Only Heather and Jody and kids were missing, and I forgive them because I get to see them in a few days!!
Once it got dark the fireworks began. And I apologize right now for how really, really awful these photos are. I'm not smart enough to figure out how to use my fancy camera at night, and thought my point and shoot would get some good ones using my "firework mode" but it just didn't happen. They are fuzzy, so enjoy.
Moving on: Sparklers. Who doesn't love them?
Cody does.
Sienna Kate does.


Mom and Ames, and Lucy.
What? You want, I mean need, to see a close up of Lucy? Here you go. Is she not the cutest thing ever? And she's about the happiest baby I've ever seen.
We are really, really, blessed to live in such a great neighborhood. I counted 30 people here enjoying the show, and really love all of them. Someone should have told Travis and my dad it was a bad idea to wrap one of the fireworks around the mailbox. Yes, we have burnt spots on it now. And yes, it will be replaced. ;)
My smart and thoughtful mom bought a huge pack of glow bracelets to pass around. My girls had them all up their arms, and were in heaven. Amy decided they looked a little bit like Rainbow Bright. Love it.

Candace and her girls enjoying the show.


Me and my Enna bug. I do love this kid, she was sooo tired during the fireworks that she actually asked me if she could go inside and go to bed.

This kid though, she was just mad that they ended so soon and wanted to stay up another hour. If you've done the math you now know that this kid is all me and Sienna is all here pops.


It made for a fabulous night, and it was full of family, some of our best friends, and lots of laughs. I can't complain.

Now it's 11:32, so I'm gonna go ahead and call it Tuesday. Meaning my b-day is just a mere 3 days away.

Who's excited??

I so need to use the ICE pack idea!! When we sit on our front porch to eat our popsciles (since we have no grass) our feet are melting while we eat popsicles, I may have to try this trick!!! Oh that little lucy, I could just eat those chubby cheeks up...so cute!

What a fun night that was. My kids are still talking about how Travis lit the mailbox on fire! Good times, good times!
