happy 4th!

We had a wonderful 4th of July and were so thankful that it rained but didn't rain that night. We took the girls to Richland to play and see the fireworks. They had so much fun playing in the gigantic inflatable paradise. Mamie got her first turn in a moon bounce and loved it. Lilly worried all day long about the noise from the upcoming fireworks. We had to stop at Walgreens on the way and buy her some earplugs. She wanted to put them in immediately (we did make her wait). They both loved the fireworks and neither one of them ended up being scared--thank goodness. We would have been ill if we had driven that far and they had hated it. Zach and Kim met us and brought Hollis for his first Fourth of July experience. He did great. Hope everyone else had a great weekend too!

Our little family--complete with pink earplugs :)

In addition to the earplugs, Lilly also kept her arms up like this the ENTIRE time to cover her ears. It was hilarious. At one point, she finally asked someone to remove the juice box from her hand so she didn't have to move.

Three little cousins--
I didn't know I was actually in this picture so forgive me for looking like a big dork. I thought Jon was just getting the kids. He always takes the most flattering pictures of me...ha ha
