4th of July weekend

We got to celebrate the 4th of July all weekend. The weekend before the 4th we went to Lone Wolf for the parade and fireworks.

On Friday the 4th we went to Altus to Aunt Susan & Uncle Bob's to swim and cook out. The kids spent all day in the pool and were tired and worn out!!

That evening we were off to Granite to Granny's house so the kids could pop fire crackers with Mammy and Pappy, aunts, uncles and cousins. I LOVE to watch the big pretty organized fireworks shows put on by the city.... but, after being hit in the back with a firecracker when I was 14, I am VERY VERY nervous when firecrackers are going off all around me and I don't know which way they are going. So, as usual I ended up watching from inside the house and did not take a single picture :(

On Saturday, we went to Norman to the Merkley's for Kenzie's 7th birthday. We cooked out, played on the water slide, made s'mores and stayed up way too late.

Sunday we headed back home. We had a great weekend. We are truly blessed to have such an awesome family!!
