4th of July

All of the little girls...

Youngest to oldest.....hmm, guess that makes me old!

The guys, a little blurry...

This is the first time in about 6 yrs that we've spent the fourth with all of my family. Unfortunately my parents were absent because of a last minute trip to CA to be with my Grandma during open heart surgery. ( She is doing well now, thank goodness). It's always so much fun for me to get together with my siblings because we all get along pretty good...and I always end up laughing. There is,of course, a little drama with the cousins, but there's tears by the end of the day when it comes time to leave. No one ever wants to go home. Needless to say, I would really love to spend more time with my family doing absolutely nothing, but life doesn't provide those opportunities as often as we like...that's why these are always special moments for me.

I totally agree with you Amy. It is so important to get together with your siblings. they love it too. It gets hard, but it ends up being worth it tens times over. You are a sweet heart and I love you and your sweet family. Dad and I were so sad to not be able to be there with you all, but we are so happy that you all made the effort to go anyway and hopefully have a great time together. love you! MOM xoxoxo
