4th of July at LBJ

I hope you all had a wonderful day celebrating our nation's Independence! We spent Thursday-Sunday at my favorite place in Texas, Lake LBJ. We had a blast as usual but my parents were missed! I never really realized just how much they do: cook, clean, drive the boat, entertain the kids etc., until they are not there. In spite of a break-in(before we arrived-nothing was taken SO WEIRD!), a boat repair, a broken AC and general craziness, we still had so much fun. I enjoy every second spent with my sisters and bro-in-laws. I have no pictures of the 6 grownups but I promise we were there. I'll do better next time:-)Here are my kids on the new boat lovin' life!

These water guns were a huge hit

And of course they all loved baby pool with the slide.

Aunt Cary had a really fun 4th of July edible craft that they kids LOVED. I think Ally ate about 50 marshmellows in one sitting.

Ryan jumping off the lower dock. This was quite a weekend for firsts. Stacey III and Ryan both jumped off the high dock several times. Bravo boys!! Click here to see an AWESOME video that Stacey made of the boys jumping

These two were smiling the entire time

Getting ready for the fireworks.

Little Miss Firecracker

After one of the most amazing fireworks we have ever seen we let Ryan and Stacey shoot off some of Uncle Josh's fireworks. These little tanks were a favorite.

I am already ready to head back down-any takers?
