Fourth of July 2012

We had a GREAT 4th of July!
My pictures are out of order (and I'm too tired to fix it!)

We started celebrating on the 3rd by going to a cookout at Scott & Mary's house with all of the kids and then going to the Country Club to watch fireworks (my camera was dead that night... bummer!)

 This next picture is very random, but it's something that I don't want to forget.... Josie has a real issue with textures when it comes to food.  She will eat very little fruit, because she truly gags when she eats a lot of "mushy" fruits.  She has recently started eating strawberries, because we happened to tell her one time that they will make her grow big and strong!  So, she will literally eat a little bit of strawberries and then show us her muscles and say, "Look!  I'm growing!!"  Love this precious girl :)
 Then, we had a busy 4th of July! Josie and I were in the neighborhood parade, which is always so much fun! Mary and Whitt joined us this year and I think that Josie and Whitt looked so cute in the wagon!  It was a HOT day, but soooooo fun!!!!!
 Guess who also joined us at the parade?!!? 
Carleigh, Ben, "Baby Graham" and "Baby Reece!!"

We ended our day with a fun cookout at our house with Josh's family!
Grandmommy and JJ brought fireworks!!!!  Yay!!
What a GREAT day!!

Miss Ashley's Shower

I helped host a wedding shower for one of Josie's sweet teachers, Miss Ashley.
She is the most precious young lady and ALL of the kids just love her!
We are so happy for her as she will soon become Mrs. Richardson!

This was as good as I could get with the kiddos :)
There were a ton mroe kids there, but we were all so busy and having such a great time that we forgot to take a pic until the end.
