Happy Fourth of July!

Saturday before the 4th, we got to go to the lake with my aunt, uncle and cousin. We just love it! There is truly no place else that is that relaxing. It love this little guy. He is too cute! "See ya suckerzzz" is his new favorite phrase. It is the first thing he said when he woke up this morning. ;)  

 Emma tried wake boarding. She got up on the board, but didn't stay up long and wasn't a fan of doing so many face plants in the water. 
 She went back to tubing. She has gotten to be a little bit of a dare devil!

 Aiden didn't get far sitting like this and he hasn't been on one since. He is a little more skeptical and hesitant of all the water sports. 
 Cute Molly was all ready for the 4th. 
 And cute Matt a little after sunset. 
 He made this YUMMY chocolate chimichanga for dessert! It was soooo good! And food really does look better with instagram. ;)
 That night, we headed out to the marina to watch fireworks. They were so pretty reflecting off the water. 

 We got in some tubing the next morning. Emma was so excited to tube with Maggie. With 2 people on the tube, she can go across the wakes, which makes it all more exciting. 
 Wednesday, we headed back to the lake to celebrate the 4th! Here were some S'mores bars we made. Once again, even yummier looking with instagram. ;)
 Emma and Yunice in their patriotic outfits.
 Pioneer Woman's Strawberry Shortcake, plus blueberries, but in a trifle all set to go to the Coger 4th of July in Huntsville. Delish!!
We had to take a walk to go see the snake. 

 They had lots of fun with all the cousins. 
 Lining up for the annual cousin picture! 
 Look, we found an extra cousin. ;)
But here's the Evans / Reynold's cousins.  

And a recap from year's past.... They are growing up so much!!
Papa, grilling up some supper!!

 Matt, Joe, and Hugh. 
 The fireworks did not disappoint! Even with the burn ban and several fires that ignited where they had the fireworks set up and they had to answer 2 calls for fires in town, the Huntsville FD did a great job! 

Hope everyone had a fun and safe 4th!! God Bless America!!
