Happy 4th!

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. 
Audrey's first July 4th. She was the most festive of the group however she missed out on most of the fun because  was in bed by 5:30pm. I tried to keep her up later but she likes an early bedtime!
 Yummy sliders and sweet potato fries
 Cutie patootie Nolan cheeses it up!

 Great action shot! Hunter flying through the air.
 Ava's turn
 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. 
 This kid CRACKS ME UP. It's like Where's Waldo in the next few pictures...."Where's Hunter"?

 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! 
Happy 4th!
