happy birthday u.s.a.
we gathered with a few friends to celebrate the 4th of july. thanks mom and dad for opening up your home! it was a sweet celebration and here's a glimpse...
all the bikes were decorated and ready for the annual parade. i couldn't stop laughing while i proudly carried the boom box(it's an antique, we've had it so long) as we paraded down the street! have you ever seen almost 20 kids riding their bikes down the middle of the street to the star spangled banner and born in the u.s.a.? it was as fun and as crazy as it sounds! the dads all seemed to have a beer in hand while the moms snapped away on their cameras. a true sight to see.
you better believe i bribed these kids to smile.
graham wasn't having it!
the dads kept their eyes on the bouncy house. as you can see, it was a rough job. they did remove a few sticks from the kids' hands as they were jumping... good call, men!
these two have grown a lot over the past few months. so great to have the jacksons back in town from GA. we've missed you guys!
love sharing memories with family and friends!
