Our 4th of July

We had such a nice 4th of July. Just a relaxing day with our family, and my brother in law, his girlfriend and her son. Thought I would share photos of our day.

We had a houseful of pups--as we had our 3, Janae's 3, 2 that Janae is dog sitting, and Scott's dog too!

Jaxson--my brother in laws, girlfriends son--we consider him our nephew
Having all those pups and a 2 year old too made for a fun day!

Brooklyn---our dog niece

Janae played football with the dogs :)

The kids had fun hanging out on the trampoline.

Gage was a happy boy--so glad that our heatwave has broken---at least for awhile!

We got some sparklers and little fireworks we knew Jaxson would enjoy.

I was so relieved that we had a nice cool day--I think it got to maybe 80 degrees. It felt wonderful! Towards the evening it started to get cold--so only Janae, Chantel, Wyatt, and I braved the cooler temps and went to see the fireworks in Banks. I thought it felt heavenly!

What a wonderful 4th of July--so happy I was born in the USA! 

Thanks for visiting!

What a great time you had Sandy! Your family looks so happy and patriotic, too! :)
Happy to hear things cooled off for you. We're enduring heat & humidity here, but I know we can't complain too much up in the Northeast. :)

I always love seeing your family. They are all so sweet including the furry family. It looks like you had a great 4th. Our weather here in Chicago was beautiful too. It was a wonderful 4th. Thanks for sharing all the special pictures of your day.

Sandy, you have such a lovely family! It looks like everyone had a fabulous fourth! Georgia's weather was so bad that our city rescheduled the festivities for Labor Day! Thank you for sharing your fun celebration!

I think that the best way to celebrate the fourth of July is to have time with your family and friends. I am a dog lover, and I especially love the photo of the Shih Tzu. Brooklyn is very photogenic as well. Great shot of the fireworks and I think that everyone enjoys sparklers.
