What a different it makes when they are this age!
I'm totally serious.
Not only did they have a blast outside most of the day,
they were well behaved.
We had quite a few peeps come over for Todd's famous smoked brisket.
Can I just tell you that my man can cook some meat!?!
Apparently everyone else thought so too.
They kept coming back for 2nds & 3rds!
Luckily, we were able to spare a bit of meat.
Here is the day in photos...
Diva Sofi...stiking the same pose as Minnie
The kids finally have enough balancing skills to get on the hammock together.
Gabi & me playing soccer w/ a volleyball, oops!
Love for the smoker & for Todd cooking the bestest brisket!
The force is strong with this one...
Loads of water fun.
And then the brisket was done...ready to be wrapped!
Our monsters in their 4th of July garb!
The girls' dresses are from Upcycle Me Crazy.
I made Ian's cutie shorts!
We hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July!
Looking forward to next year.
