Today we had the Tonicks over to swim and cookout to celebrate Independence day AND Grant's birthday (which is tomorrow).
It rained just before they came over. Hunter and Madison were concerned they wouldn't be able to swim... eagerly watching outside for the rain to go away. It cleared up right at 3:30pm when they pulled in the driveway.
Yummy sliders and sweet potato fries
Cutie patootie Nolan cheeses it up!
Great action shot! Hunter flying through the air.
Have I mentioned how much our kids LOVE the Tonick kids? Seriously they adore each other. They play so well together. It's so relaxing to just sit back in the shade and catch up with friends while our kids play together for HOURS.
We celebrated Grant's birthday with a carrot cake and party hats and blowers for the kids.
Jordan bought a bunch of kid firecrackers and sparklers.
T-E-R-R-I-F-I-E-D of the firecrackers. He hates loud noises. At least this year he is outside while we do them and actually held the sparklers. Last year he was inside watching from the window. He's getting brave :)
Love these two :)
I will leave you with this little gem. The Best worst firecracker ever. It shoots some smoke and sparklers then lays an egg....or hemorrhoid...we aren't sure. So WIERD so HILARIOUS!
