We hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July! The pictures in the slide show are from our busy weekend. There are also some pictures of Joey riding Buttermilk last Wednesday. If you haven't checked out the video in the previous post of him walking, take a peek at it before you go. He is doing awesome and getting better everyday! Go Joey! We are so proud of him! On Friday night, we joined some friends to watch our local fireworks display. We had fun and it gave the kids a chance to run around. On Saturday, we went to my mom's house and had a grilling bonanza! We had so many different kinds of meat we could have ate for a week! I enjoyed a thick juicy ribeye grilled to perfection by my brother-in-law. Thanks man - it was delicious! The kids lit off their fireworks at dark (and before!) and we all had a good time. The boys suprised me with a huge firework they bought called "One Bad Mother". Bad meaning good I hope! lol They were pleased with themselves and that was our grand finale of the night. Sunday was spent relaxing a little (FYI - relaxing is usually impossible in our house!) and I took our 5 kids and my nephews Cooper and Tanner to the park. We even stopped at Dairy Queen for ice cream! Yeah - I'm not entirely sure they will let us back into the joint but it saved having the mess in our van!
