Fourth of July

We got to celebrate the Fourth twice this year!

Dave hosted dinner and a show (Allen Fireworks) at his house last weekend and then this weekend we traveled to East Texas to see family.

We're still working on perfecting our family picture.
While at Dave's we walked down the street for a bit to visit with the Ellison's. So fun how we know two people in the same neighborhood, all the way across the metroplex. The kids enjoyed getting to check out the play fort and trampoline. Otto was brutally honest when Jefferie open the front door when we rang the bell, "I'm just here to play with your toys.".
Back at Dave's, we had a delicious dinner, and then Dave brought out popsicles during the show. Meri loved it!
She kept yelling, "More!" whenever there was a lull in the show, crazy girl loves to watch things explode.
And we started this weekend with helping my in-laws move! They have finished the inside of their new house, and we are so excited that they finally get to live closer to town. Here's a shot of the moving crew, love my helpful brothers!

My parents very kindly watched the kids, and took them to an event at a local church. Otto was a FAN of the unlimited son-cones and bounce house water slide.

We got there just before dark, and he couldn't wait to show us around.
And then another firework show! Our group, Bazils and Stuart too!
Otto isn't a fan of the noise that accompanies fireworks, but thankfully his uncles were looking out for him and came prepared with ear protection.
The rest of the weekend was spent in Minky and MG's pool, the kids insisted on at least three hours a day in the water.
