4th of July Fun

Last night, we celebrated the 4th with our awesome friends Ky and Teresa and their 5 kids. We had a great time!

We gathered for the fireworks near the new home that they will be moving into in a couple of weeks. It was the perfect spot! We had a great view of the fireworks, and had our own little area, completely removed from the crowds!

Caylie wasn't with us. She had been invited to her friend's river house for the weekend, so we were missing our girl! :)

Below are Ky and Teresa, and their oldest son Josh, along with Corey, just enjoying the night.

The younger kids hung out a lot in the back of our truck. It was GREAT for keeping the toddlers corralled!

Ky's dad joined us and served up some delicious homemade strawberry ice cream! Yum!

Carson hung out in Teresa's lap while he ate (and dripped) his ice cream.

When the fireworks started, Carson tried to reach out and touch them! He really enjoyed it, and wasn't afraid at all!

Carson went back and forth from our laps to the truck. Below, he is hanging out with Christian and Drew (one of Ky and Teresa's 4 fun boys). Check out the ice cream spots all over the front of his shirt!

Christian and Drew have been buddies for a long time. I was going through some old photo albums this weekend, and found pictures of the two of them at Christian's 4th birthday party...they were so cute! :)

Drew spent a night with us this weekend, and he and Christian spent HOURS playing monopoly!

Here they are watching the fireworks from the top of the truck.

Take a look at these two cuties below...

This is Carson with Ky and Teresa's little precious, Rachel.

What do ya think of arranged marriages?

I'm thinking that these two would make a great couple!


We begged them to give each other a kiss, and they did...once. With my camera being sooo slow, I missed it, and Carson just couldn't handle the pressure, and wouldn't do it again!

Oh well, maybe next time!

It was a relaxing, fun night, and we can't wait to do it again next year! :)

Writing the Waves,
