Happy 4th

As our annual tradition goes for the 4th of July we headed out to Jason's mom to celebrate our country's freedom with a day in the sun.

Of course there was lots of food.  There were so many things I wanted to make, but I had to limit it and tried to make things I had in the house.

Oreo Pops - these were my kids favorite.

I've got to come up with a better way to display these next time, but it was literally at the last minute.

Fruit Pizza.  This was so easy to make.  Sugar cookie crust, cream cheese icing with strawberries and blueberries.  Oh so yummy.

I think the kids stayed in the pool all day from about 11:30 - 5:00.  They were so exhausted by the end of the day because of course no naps.

Each year we head to Aunt Chris's to watch the fireworks at Jax beach, however this year the city wasn't going to shoot fireworks.  We still thought Jason's cousins who usually buy a ton of fireworks would still shoot theirs off.  We were all dressed and ready to head over there and found out that no fireworks were going off, so we stayed around Rhonda's for a little while to see what all her neighborhood had for fireworks.

All of the kiddos minus Caleb

As you can tell Trevor isn't a big fan of the fireworks.

The mosquitos were so BIG because of the recent rain we have had, that we decided to pack up and try to catch the fireworks in Downtown Jax.  Well the kids were worn out and they were asleep within 5 minutes of riding so we called it a night and went on home.
