Our 11th of July party...

The party went on..... without the wet t-shirt contest;) The rain finally stopped for us...right on time. Things were a little rushed to get everything set up after that, but we got it done. Our guest turnout was pretty slim compared to what it usually is, but to all of you who were able to make it, thanks for coming!! I didn't get as many pictures as what I did last year, and none are as good, but here are a few. Sadly, I only have one of the babies together in their oh-so-cute outfits, and it's of their butts. They were both sleeping when everyone started to show up and they both left not long after, so we didn't get much of a chance. We'll just have to dress them in them again, just to get pictures:) The girls looked SOOOOOOO freakin' cute, as you will see, and so did the boys, even though, gasp!!, Gavin wasn't cooperating for pictures.... he's so hateful sometimes:)

As many bad things that have gone on this week ( this is definitely a year I will ALWAYS remember... for all of the negative things that have happened), the party turned out pretty good. Of course, Jami and I can usually always have fun together:) And we did.... thanks to potato salad, silly girls, and go-carts.....which we got stuck...after LOTS of mud:) This may be the last year we do this, according to Vern. He's decided from now on we are using the money for a vacation.... but we'll see. This is my favorite holiday, after all, and I don't know of anyone else who has fun things for me to do!! Who wants to watch fireworks in a park??? Actually, lots of people.... but not I!!! I guess the 4th spent on vacation every year wouldn't be to bad either. There are always fireworks in other states:)

The pictures are backwards.... the first ones are toward the end and the last at the beginning...
