Happy 5th of July....

****Correction***** EMILY saved the day on the fireworks... should have known Chad was just as much a tight-wad as JD.... Em and I have to keep them balanced with our ability to spend!!
Our 4th consisted of JD going to church, all 3 kids going to Chad's house with Granna, and me.. well... I took round 2 with the swingset. We had to wrap our day up early to go to a baptizing so I took advantage of my work time without the kids here and got the fort part of the set finished and got the swing part all together too- teh monkey bars are still not on- but I am still sore and today is supposed to be super hot- we will see just when those monkey bars get put on.....

So we celebrated our holiday as the 5th with swimming and eating and a pretty pitiful little fireworks show. (Kaylee and Kyle had $20 each- Kyle took out the buy one get one section and Kaylee got 4 packs of sparklers and a hen laying eggs) Chad saved the day with the big finale that shot some really pretty fireworks at the end. (and I must have been having an old people moment because I was thinking "we just set fire to over $40") I have pics of the swingset on the camara that I cannot find the cord to (uh-huh.. what else is new) but I do have pics from the pool. Guess that will just have to do for now....

I know you hear this all the time but Kaden is growing so fast!!! Every time I see him it makes me a little sad to see how much he has grown! Just looking at these pictures makes me have a little lump in my throat :(
I'm glad y'all had a good 5th! We love y'all!
(rereading this above, you would think I NEVER get to see y'all) ha

The saving of the fireworks show was actually due to Aunt Emily...you know Chad isn't going to spend money voluntarily!! lol
