Happy 4th of July!

I'm a person who really likes tradition- it's kind of strange to think that we don't have any 4th of July traditions!  In fact, for most years, we're not even in the country.  This year, it dawned on us that we'd actually be in town, so we decided to have a get-together! 
It was so hot with triple-digit weather, so most people spent their time relaxing in the pool (even I got in- that's a pretty big deal).  I think this was the most people we've ever had in our pool at once! The kids had so much fun playing with each other and we enjoyed having some time to visit with friends.  Later this week, we'll be heading out-of-town and won't be back until August.  This happens every summer, and unfortunately, we miss out on a lot of opportunities to hang out with friends here.  This get-together allowed us to see a lot of people all in one night!
After a great dinner (in which everyone brought something to share), we enjoyed cookies, 2 kinds of fresh fruit cobbler, and homemade ice cream before heading to the front yard for fireworks.  This was our family's first time doing fireworks.  The guys lit the fireworks and placed them in the street to try and give us a show.  Jeremy kept saying, "Why aren't the fireworks in the air?"  The fun part was when sparklers were handed out.
Hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July!  We sure did! (Check out our album on the right for many more pictures)!
