We managed to keep the kids occupied until the cousins arrived (thanks for the sweet words about the decorations too :) And once they arrived, the 4th pretty much revolved around water. And one day I know they'll be jumping off the garage roof into the pool. I am not naive ;)
Lots and lots of eating
Celebrating America's birthday, and Char-Char's.
With 12 cousins, we pretty much have a birthday every single month now.
And lots of fireworks.
Turns out there's one upside of having a dirt pit in our backyard still; perfect foundation for fireworks.
The littles just love sparklers. We're a big fireworks family.
Seriously, he asked the morning of the 4th if he could bring them. True story.
And because they didn't get enough water play yesterday...water balloons this morning.
Syd started a new trend of squeezing a water balloon on his head until it pops.
Whatever floats your boat I guess?
