Our sweet friends, the Hasslers, invited us over for the 4th of July. Of course we had to stop on the way there to get some fireworks. "For the kids," Tim said.
Daddy and Rhys went to pick out the goodies...
And I got to hang out with this handsome guy in the car!
Taryn outdid herself and spoiled us with so many delicious appetizers and dishes and we all ate too much. The kids had tons of fun, too. Here is our very own patriotic band! (And yes, the Hasslers also have boy/girl twins!)
It actually started to rain but that didn't stop the fireworks!

It was right after this picture that our little Rhysie burned her finger on the sparkler. Tim had told the kids many times not to touch the "fire" and they did so well. As soon as her sparkler burned out, she grabbed the top part of it. We never thought to tell the kids that it would still be hot! OUCH! After some screaming, ibuprofen, and a band-aid, she was ready to join the fun again. Well, she was ready to join the fun from a distance!
Love this picture that Taryn took. Kids standing under an umbrella enjoying the celebration.
These boys were loving it!

Here are some fun memories...
THREE YEARS AGO!
and TWO YEARS AGO!
Happy 4th, Y'all!
