Because It's Easier This Way

We had a great 4th of July! We went to my sister-in-law's house. They have a huge lot behind their house where we speculate a different house once stood but possibly burned to the ground? Their landlord plans to build another house there to live sometime in the near future but for now it's great for BBQs! It feels like you're in the country, even though you're really in the midst of a large city.

And... pictures from our day! Enjoy!

Abigail is READY to go to the party!

Part of the BBQ- the fire pit and food!

Swimming made them hungry!!!

The Man- read his shirt!

The kids wouldn't stand still long enough for a photo-op but that's okay! They had a blast in the pool!!! I'm on the right holding Abigail.

Picking raspberries! And eating them!!! You can see Abigail in the back, triumphant.

Elaina inspecting her raspberry. She claims she doesn't like them but she'd eat the ones she picked!

So proud of herself! She kept picking unripe ones and eating them!!!

Miss Cranky Pants- she started feeling better after she ate

I yelled, "Where's JOY?!?!?!"

Elaina ate 2 hotdogs and half a cheeseburger. The kid was HUNGRY!

I think Daniel is the father... ha ha! She's his spitting image!
If you click on it, it will enlarge and you can see their faces better- she has his eyes, lips and nose!!! It's crazy!

Roasting marshmallows as it started getting dark, before fireworks!

The lovebirds before the fireworks began! I don't know what he was doing with his hair.

I hope yours was a blessed holiday!
