July 4th Weekend.

We had a busy and FUN 4th of July weekend. It's starting to become one of my favorite holidays (Christmas will always be my favorite), but 4th of July is creeping up there. We started the weekend off by spending the night at my cousin Heather's house. She has 4 wonderful kids ... and we had such a great time!
This was when the kids were playing with colored bubbles, which became colored paint. Oh, they had so much fun!!

Maddy with Cole.
Jake and Kyle.
We went to the park one day .... beautiful!
The kids playing on the playground.
