4th of July 2013

 This years 4th of July party was one of the best in my opinion.
Aaron and his brother Nate rented a bouncy castle and a water slide for the kids to play on.  Oh and Uncle Joe :)
 Lily had a great time hanging out with Aaron and his brothers in the shade while her brothers went down the water slide.

 Ethan had a great time with his cousins and even helped his brother, who was a little scared, go down the water slide.

 We also launched our annual parachute guys and the kids had fun running around trying to catch them before they hit the ground.

 Landon had such a fun time launching water balloons at his Daddy, who was on the other side.

Grandpa Nelson was even launching a few.

 Josie and Lizzy had a fun time watching the water balloon launch and launching a couple of balloons themselves.  Abu also got really into the water balloon competition.

We went and watched a professional fireworks show this year.  It was so much fun and I didn't have to worry about cleaning up the mess at our house.

We also had our annual glow stick fun.  Everyone was given glow sticks and could decorate themselves any way they wanted.  Everyone had a great time and was very creative.  Grandma Nelson stayed home with Lily so the rest of us could enjoy the show.  Thanks Mom that was so sweet of you.

I am so glad that my family could be with us this year.  I hope they will be able to come next year too.  It is always fun getting together with Aaron's family and having all the cousins laughing and having a good time.  Thanks Aaron for making this year so memorable.
