4th & s'mores

We have had a great time hanging out with our niece, Brittany. She is only here for one more week and I have to say, I will be so sad to see her go home.... She has been a huge help to Rusty and I and I know Paige and Carter have really enjoyed having her here. The kids have made many new friends since the move, but there's still nothing quite like family! The past few nights we have been hanging out around the fire pit, laughing, talking and roasting marshmallows. The kids have been loving making s'mores and I have lost track of how many bags of marshmallows and Hershey bars we've been through!

Last night we had some great friends over for some BBQ, baked beans (Ash, those things are 'da bomb!) and fireworks. We had a great time! the kids played on the water slide, threw water balloons at everyone and of course, made s'mores! I wish I had more pictures to share from the 4th, but somehow, I only snapped a few and they were all out of focus :( But here are a few from the night before! Enjoy! Hope everyone had a safe and Happy 4th of July!

Please tell Brittany that Grandma misses her a lot!! Your Dad has been my "Brittany" (helper) in Sunday School. Good? Well, let's just say he's no Brittany! He has been great, but the First Graders miss Brittany. It's great to hear about the fun time you guys have been having. See you soon, Love Grandma B.
