4th of July (J's Family Portion) -

We had a fun time in Soda. After lunch at my parents (and a quick nap for P), we headed for Soda. J's sisters, Heather & Maria, were there with their families. We just hung out, ate good, and watched the fireworks. I was amazed to learn, when I married J, that Soda actually has a really good firework display! We went to the park and sat under them. I was a little concerned that P might be afraid of the loud booms and bangs. Amazingly enough, he wasn't scared at all! He LOVED them! It was pretty cute because he kept Oohing and Ahhing and laughing. The family thought it was pretty cute.

We stayed over the night because on Saturday, J has his 10 year high school reunion. They had a picnic lunch at the park where children were invited, then they had a dinner at a restaurant in town, and then they went over to the pub to party. J and I skipped the latter and went home early. Overall, it was fun and we really enjoyed getting to see family. J's sister, Heather, lives in Colorado so we don't get to see her and her family as much as we'd like to.

Now for the pictures, of course, they contain water! Aunt Maria brought a swimming pool up and the kids had a blast in there. P didn't want to go in but he had so much fun splashing from the sidelines.
Getting ready to slap the water.

Post Slap!


P discovered the true use of the squirt gun ... a refreshing drink.


How do you work this thing? (This is exactly why we don't have guns in our home. I can see something terrible might happen. When we do get some guns, I can promise that they will be locked up VERY safe!)



P and his cousin Morgan! She is so stinkin' cute and they got along really well!
Another cute pic of Morgan!

P and his cousin, Sam. Sam is 3 months younger than P.

Splashing Sam!


Isn't Sam cute! (I have the cutest nieces & nephews!)


Momma, Heather, trying to keep Sam dry but P wasn't letting that happen!



Grandma Sugar

Grandpa Grumpy
(He really isn't grumpy, G'ma Sugar called him that and it kind of stuck!)

Having fun.

I just squirted Grandpa, I better run!

My cheesy & extremely handsome man! I love him SOOOOO much!




P's cousin, Gaby, squirting J while he takes her picture.

P's cousin, Sarah, "posing." She looks a little mischievous to me ...


Morgan and Gaby getting J!

Uncle J was a good sport and played with the kids. They all had fun.


P's cousin, Andrew, was there for the weekend but somehow he didn't end up in the pictures. I think he was inside the house or something during the water fight. I wanted to share a picture of him. This is from several months ago but I figured it had to do.

That boy has the most expressive face, every time I look at the pics I see something I didn't the time before, like that look of consternation he has looking at that squirt gun that keeps getting him in the face...Love that boy.
