Fourth of July festivities

We hope you all had a great Fourth of July today. We were able to celebrate the day with our good friends Brian, Christy, Megan, and Mikey. We look forward to this day every year as we get to blow stuff up! We've actually spent almost every 4th of July with them for the past five years or so.

Anna Grace started off the night by getting whacked in the head by a swing---thus the photo of her with ice on her head. But she quickly recovered. We had a great evening of dinner, ice cream, cards, and fireworks. Brian and Christy went to AL to buy fireworks we can't buy here in GA. Shh. Don't tell anyone! We launched them up the hill from us in a vacant lot. The fireworks drew a crowd of neighbors as well so a good time was had by all.

Oh, and the cooler in the picture is just full of water. Christy and I insisted we haul water to the launching site in case of fire. I really is water! I even tossed in a bucket in case we needed to sling water onto something. None was ever needed but we felt better having it there. :-)

Oh, poor Anna Grace!! : (
I hope the ice helped to keep away any bumps on her head!

Looks like you guys had lots of fun and that cooler doubled as a great seat for the little ones!

The girls look adorable in their matching outfits!!
