4th of July

The 4th of July weekend was a busy one, but a good one! The weather was great, lots of playing outside and lots of laughs! The 3rd, I ran in a 10k in Barrington, first race back in Barrington in about 10 years. The course was the same, but the humidity wasn't a friend. Managed to win my age group, but the time was not of my liking, oh well. Then we headed to Linda's house to play in her pool and completely wear the children out.... it worked. (Thanks Linda). Chris and I watched fireworks from the deck-- the kids were too worn out.

Sunday we headed to the parade and then Smileys and Danneggers headed over in the afternoon/evening. The kids all had a great time. We put the hose up at the top of the slide and created a water slide that seemed to be pretty cool, just really cold water (no pics, not sure what we were thinking!) We'll work on that for next year. Good food, good company and lots of laughs.

Anika getting her friends ready for a picnic on the 3rd.

Shay too---- she was attending Ani's picnic.

I've got enough food mom!

Cheese! Kylie wanted the picture, but as soon as she got the camera, Ani and Shay came running over to sit with her.

Chris and his girls at the parade.... Odin was there too and quite popular.

What's better than a 4th of July Princess at dessert?

Aunt Julie's dessert has everyone stopped---- and eating. It was awesome.

Ryan looks like he is trying to steal a dessert.... :)

Anika DID steal someone dessert-- Shay's. And in case you did not hear, you have to have dessert while wearing your backpack.
