4th of July

The Fourth of July has become one of my favorite holidays. It is no stress really at all and I get to have fun celebrating Karen's birthday! We spend the day with our friends swimming, eating, visiting fireworks and EATING! Love it!
Levi Loves watermelon.

I saw this cute little idea on pinterest where you use a star cookie cutter for you watermelon and some blueberries to make these fun festive wands. The kids had so much fun making then I think this is a new tradition for us!
Fun to eat too!
Cupcakes for the birthday girl. Chocolate of course!
Me and My girl
Red, white and blue
I know this picture looks a lot like the other picture but I really liked them both:)
Ezra's shorts and Ivy's dress are made out of the same material.
Lucy is a twin mom just like her mommy. It is very normal for Lucy to carry two dolls around the house. When her babies are stuck in her bed she will cry, "My babies, My babies." The chances of her having twins is high being a fraternal twin herself so I guess this is good practice!
Daddy and his babies
Lucy's first sparkler
Levi wanted nothing to do with them!
Ezra putting on a show

 Daddy puts on a good show too.

Too much fun for little Rylan (son of Ross and Jordana)
I am sad that I didn't get any pictures of Cora on her first 4th. I do have a sweet story though....

Karen was changing Cora's diaper and Cora was fussy. Ezra came up and said "I will hold her hand so she won't be sad....It's okay Cora." He loves her!!!!
