Fun on the Fourth

Yesterday was great. Hanging out all day and watching the kids have fun with the fireworks and sparklers when the sun went down. Rye had a blast with her cousins and Jo experienced her first sparkler and all the pops and bangs that go along with this holiday. Here are some fun pics from the day.
During the day we hung out in the house while the bigger kids played outside. Jo and Zeke had some time together. They interact a lot and seem to enjoy each other.
This is Jojo's tongue thing. She is always sticking her tongue out, whether it's like this or she has her binky in & pushed out just enough to get her tongue out while the binky is still in...does that make sense? I'll have to try and get a picture of it.

These two are so cute together. They take turns man handling each other.

Just added this one in so you can see her top teeth. Number 6 is on it's way.
The adults enjoyed the night too. My brothers in law, Rick & Derek, took care of lighting everything off.

The kids enjoying the sparklers...some were a little more wary than others.

Heather took a lot of the fireworks in action pictures.Watching the bigger fireworks that were farther away The girlies The dudes
Jo's first look at sparklers. She couldn't take her eyes off them. She was very good.

Some pics that turned out really cool. The kids with sparklers and enjoying the fireworks.

It's like these that I dislike living the military life style. I wish I could have more random days like these for no reason at all, with all of my family there. We had such a good time, I wish Eric could have been here to enjoy it with us.

Hey! I lit about a bajillion sparklers, and a few fireworks too.

Those silhouette pictures turned out so cool.

Man, I'm gonna have to redo my picture wall with all the great shots that were taken this trip.
