We have just returned from visiting our family and enjoyed a great week full of celebrations. We started the week off with introducing Lexie to her extended family members who covered her with kisses and hugs and a 4th of July parade. Of course, Ethan and Gracie were just as excited to see everyone including their cousins. They loved watching their cousins light fireworks, were ecstatic about going down the slip 'n' slide with each other, pretended to build sandcastles at White Sands and were in hog heaven being spoiled by their grandparents and great grandparents. Then on Sunday we enjoyed a full day of patriotic barbecues complete with strawberry pie and root beer floats. Lexie and I enjoyed the fireworks from the quietness of the house while Ethan, Gracie and Eric watched them in full view. Then on our last day we attended my cousin De'Joire's wedding. She married a great guy who we call Coop and I just know by his sense of humor he will definitely fit nicely into our family. That is if we don't scare him off ;) The beautiful ceremony was held at White Sands and afterward we celebrated the joyous occasion the only way we know how....eating up a storm and dancing the night away!

Of course, what is a parade without one screaming child
upset that she didn't beat her brother to the candy.

Now back to our happy smiling children
