Don't know what our weekend plans will be. Tomorrow we're working on the house and staying cool. The 80/35 music festival is going on today and tomorrow. If it was cooler out, I'd take the boys over to hear the music and enjoy the crowd. But it is most definitely not cool out so we will not be doing that this year. I am planning to take the boys to a matinee showing of "Brave" tomorrow afternoon.
So now on to the photos! Special thanks to Aunt Jean and Uncle Doug for hosting the party at their house. It was SO MUCH fun! I love parties at their house because we don't have to drive far and their house is very kid-friendly with a gigantic backyard, a trampoline, a big playset and a hose -- everything you need to keep kids entertained on a hot, hot afternoon!
Look at the fancy 4th of July cake pops that we made! Bo and Mazy helped me decorate them. Violet supplied the sassy bow and band for the vase.
My mom looking sassy in her head scarf!
My brother Troy rolling his son Kael in a gigantic ball. Keep in mind it was literally 101 degrees out that afternoon...
Fun in the trampoline!
Me and sweet baby Violet!
My husband: King Firework or the Pyro King or Mr. Boom!
Don't worry, nothing was going to explode. They're just watching those snake things grow.
Shawn asked me to take a picture of Bo's shoes -- note the sandwich bags we used to keep his socks dry because he left his shoes in the path of the garden hose...
At about 10 p.m., the kids decided they were STARVING! I have never seen five children put away so much fried chicken and rice krispie treats!
