The Fourth of July

The evening of July 4th included lots of friends, lots of food, lots of fireworks and a few pictures.

Owen quickly became a fan of sparklers
Aubrey is proud to be an American!
We got together with a group of about 30 friends for the Fourth of July.
How a group of guys can sit in a hot garage on a 90 degree day is beyond me.
This is the cake I made; Although, I asked Ben to make the flag. I think he did a great job.
Some of the children
Some of the men
Some of the women
One of our MANY attempts to get a family picture.
Owen and his friend, Morgan.
Me and my girl
The kids had a blast listening to bottle rockets, making colored smoke, waving sparklers, throwing snappers and watching fireworks.
Owen and his friend, Meredith
Jessica carried a supply of sparklers and snappers that she gave to Owen. So he made sure to stick very close to her side!
Watching fireworks. Owen LOVED it! The noise didn't bother him at all. Aubrey was sleeping by this point. Owen didn't nap but the excitement of the night kept him happy.
