We had lot of family over to celebrate 4th of July this year-it was so fun! Thats something I love about our home, lot of wide open spaces for people to enjoy. Joey barbecued while we did the sides and dessert with my mom who was visiting. We made quite the beautiful patriotic trifle. It was tasty too :) My Mom is good at making things pretty and being festive with every holiday. My brother Austin, Grandma, aunts, uncle, cousins and some extended family that I had never met before were also here. Everyone really had a great time. There was lots of good eatin' and volleyball playing by the older kids/teens. The boys had a blast with my cousins(Brandon & Sharlene's) son, Ethan. They cruised the yard in the power wheels all evening long :) Wesley and Ethan's little cheeks were bright pink from the heat and running around so much! We also were able to meet Brandon & Sharlene's newest addition, beautiful miss Cassidy Rose. Her chubby cheeks are the cutest! And she has the most gorgeous eyes and complexion. What a blessing. I'm grateful that I've been able to get to know Sharlene over the past few months their cute little family has lived here. She is awesome-super sweet and seriously funny. In the evening, we headed over to my Aunt Sandy's house to watch the fireworks from her backyard. Great view of them! I'm grateful that this day we also got a cute family picture. Little did I know that this would be our last family picture that would capture a moment of time that would end soon...our time in Texas was almost over...and we didn't even know it yet...

It was mildly warm one summer day in Texas. The grass was bright green and the sky was blue. It was the perfect day to slip and slide. I remember laughing and laughing this day in July. The boys were hilarious. They kept on running on the slide and sliding into the bumper at the end of it instead of running and sliding as you reach the slippery surface. Or better yet, not even making it to the end without eating it..as you will see in the sequence of Wesley pics below :)Joey took lots of photos as you can see and they turned out awesome. Aubrey took lots of video and even made a funny video compilation of it all on iMovie. We also enjoyed Sonic slushes that day during Happy Hour. It really was a wonderful Saturday...

Happy 4 months Luke!!! The best thing happened this past month-Luke laughed! Isn't that the best?! Nothing sweeter than a baby giggle. Another new thing is that he is actually grasping toys and then of course bringing them up to his mouth to give them a good taste and a suck :) He sucks on everything! And as you can see, he loves his fingers too :) I love it..he is starting to become entertained by things which keeps him happy happy. Of course, he is generally happy no matter what though..we are so blessed. He also started babbling "mamama" the other day...however, its only when he is sad :( But heck, I'll take what I can get. He said Mama before Dada. I win!!!! Finally ;) I can't believe Luke is 4 months old now. He isn't so "newborn" anymore..they just grow too darn fast.
