Fourth Of July

We had such a great time with cousins on Fourth of July.  This holiday will be in multiple posts, since my camera battery died and I did not get the Belly Flop Contest or the amazing dinner that my parents made.  My mother went overboard with dinner.  We told her to go easy, but my mother went all out with the most delicious food.  Hoping I can steal my amazing sister-in-love Sheila's pictures who is an amazing photographer.  We also went to a block party in the neighborhood during the evening and had the most amazing time.  Still need to edit those pictures.

We are so grateful that Steve could be with us this year.  Last year, he missed all the festivities as he was in business meetings the whole day.  We missed him so much.  Apparently, Europe does not recognize the 4th of July as a holiday.

Last year, the boys had a t-shirt malfunction.  We were trying to avoid the same fate.
