A Fun Fourth!

This year we hit the road to go to Houston for the 4th. We got to see Uncle Burke, Auntie Stace and our girl cousins Marin and Hollis. So much fun now that the kids are getting older. There was a definite big cousin thing going on between Kate and Marin and Hollis that was so special to see. I knew that Carso had a special place in his heart for Marin when he gave her the tootsie roll (his most favorite candy)  he caught in the town parade (which by the way was the longest parade I have ever seen).

Only slightly better picture taking success this summer.

Slightly better. Meaning 2 out of 4 are actually looking at the camera.

Cousin friends.

I love this one!

Our parade crew.

My wonderful sister in law Stacey.

Love my patriotic boy. He was so excited for the parade. And he definitely got his times worth. Everytime we thought it was over Burke would look down the street and say, "Youre not going to believe it but here comes something else!"

My beauty. My sister in law takes a lot of close ups. She's so smart.  They really are one of the best shots of kids. This one makes me want her to stay 6 forever. :)

Loved seeing these girls together. Holding hands, looking out for each other:)

Real life.

Auntie Stace french braided her hair in the morning and she was so proud of it. She wouldnt let me take it out no matter what:)

Love this guy!

Two beautiful sisters.

My favorite part of the parade.

There's something I love about watching my brothers with their kids. It is so sweet to me.

Uncle Sam!

Me and my Bro.

Real life. Check out the sucker.

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
