For Mom

Mom wanted to share some pictures with some friends from high school and college and this is an easy way for her to do that. So enjoy looking at pictures from the last 6 months or so of me, my siblings and parents.

4th of July & a Swim Party

I can't believe that it is July already! This is our family on the 4th in front of our house. We bought some sparklers and Roman candles and had fun in the front yard for a minute. Noah, of course, is all boy and loved all of it and wanted to do everything his daddy did. Michal Kate heard the noise one time and stepped back and watched. My parents came in that morning and stayed through Saturday! We grilled out and enjoyed spending time together.

Papa and Gram with Jack and sparklers!

Saturday afternoon we had Jack's 1st birthday party, though a little late, it was worth the wait. I decided to do a kiddie pool party. Between 5 kiddie pools, 2 sprinklers, a slip and slide, and a water mat, along with beach balls everywhere, the kids all had a blast and were worn out by the time it was over!
Jack enjoying his cake, and tried very hard to share with mommy!Jack and Lauren on the slip and slide!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
