4th of July party at our house

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...
