Our 4th

Thought I'd hop on here real quick and post some pictures from our 4th of July =).

We had plans to go to a potluck with some other twin/triplet families from our group that morning, and then head down to Dave's parents for the afternoon and evening, but in the days leading up to the 4th, illness washed over our home and we were all - at one time or another- down for the count. There was a LOT of this going on...


...yes, that's our children, laying near-listless, on our bed watching Mickey Mouse's Clubhouse.

It started with Luke getting 103.4 fever, which lasted a few days, then Abigail jumped on board the fever train too. Then David, then me. It wasn't pretty. There was some puke. Some crying. Some restless nights. Lots of whining - some even by the children.

By the 3rd we were feeling better but not great, so we canceled our morning plans and decided just to head South to see family after nap time. 


The cousins...



Luke and Abbey both took turns playing Cowboy and Cowgirl, naturally...




We did Sparklers...


And the kids ran and ran and then ran some more...

(don't mess with that boy!)

Poppa lit off some bigger fireworks in the driveway. Abbey and Luke weren't sure what to think at first, but they both deemed them fun soon enough. Luke didn't like the loud ones. He would say "Momma cover brother's ears". So I did.


Our little family...



We played with the dog...


 ...joyfully =)


...and showed off our dance moves...


...and before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye...



And this was about 2 minutes into our drive home...


...the sign of a good time!
