Happy 4th of July!!!

Hoping everyone had a fun and safe 4th of July!!

We decided to stay home this year and have a nice family 4th! Mike was thrilled because he spent the entire day BBQing-- starting with Pancakes on the BBQ for breakfast! He's a BBQing machine and loves to have friends over so he can feed them-- serving/feeding is definitely his love language. Lucky me-- no cooking/prepping the entire day!! :) Our neighborhood is quite the firework frenzy so we just went out front and the kids played and watched the millions of fireworks going off!!! Some people put on quite a show!!

My favorite picture-- Jake didn't want his picture taken, so he gave me the cheesiest smile and then ran off as soon as the camera clicked. Grace wasn't too thrilled to be posing either.

Nice and safe smoke bombs! (lovin' the rubber boots on Jake! He wears those year round!!)

Neighborhood buddies. Jake has some good friends that live next door and a few houses down! Always someone fun to play with!!
Some good finger curls!! I've been doing Grace's hair from time to time like this for awhile, but now that her hair is really long... the spirals are amazing!!! I love the ringlets in the piggies and they stay like this for a good couple of days!!!

Sounds like you had a great family time. Your little girl is so cute and she has so much hair!!!!

Thanks for the hair help, Suzi Q! I'll try to see if that translates to Ray Ray's hair. If not, I just might require an in-person consultation! :)
Yes, we are in beautiful Maui. Ahhhhh, livin' the good life! But, everyone's sleeping, and we have internet access, so of course I'm reading my blogs! It's like CRACK, man! Let me know about all of Julie McCoy's camping plans for next summer.
