The Fourth

Here is our 4th!

Oops!  I uploaded them in the wrong order.  Start at the bottom:)
The BIG waterslide is always a hit!
Piper liked to stand at the top and play with the water.  She did go down once...
Gracie and Ellie- such cute little buddies:)
Gracie is quite brave on the slide.  She loves to go forwards, backwards, and any other way!

They all got tattoos
Hard at work on the noise makers
Ellie, Gracie, and Pipes showing us their noise makers for the parade.
The girls and Jeremy are decorating the stroller...
We continued our traditions this year with the Balts.  We make a day of it.  We go to Birkdale in the morning for activities and lunch, and then back to our house to swim in the afternoon.  Then we cookout in the evening and go to the fireworks.  
 This year our evening got rained out, so we all piled inside and just hung out and ate yummy food. The Neeses, Kovacs, and Manninos came to celebrate the evening with us. That was a treat!  We ended up watching the Macy's fireworks on TV.  So sad, it's just not the same.  But they did have some neat fireworks that many of us had never seen before.
  Fun day, great memories:)

It sounds like you had a very blessed 4th!
I was wondering if you know of any families in our area that attend Crossway? In South Charlotte, Fort Mill area.
