2015 Fourth of July...

We started the day bright and early with a red, white, and blue breakfast.  
Rissy is our little miss 4th of July.
 This baby is our firework.  
The neighborhood has a parade.  It has doubled in size from last year.  That is a good sign more families are moving in!


Nap time! Every one was hot and tired by 10:45.

 I had my hair done on Friday.  I had to document it because no hats and headbands are a rarity in Houston weather.  
 After a church bbq and naps, we headed the Adsero's for a swim party.  
These two are James's best friends.  
 John baked his yummy chocolate pie specialty.  Every get together at the Adseros looks like something out of a magazine!  They are great entertainers! 

 Friends.

 I can't say how much I love this family!  Quinn is our hometeacher and is constantly serving us. 

 We finished the night at the Mortensen's.  All the dad's put on a fabulous firework show.  Rissy love the pooping dog firework.  The forth of July seem's to turn our husband into teenagers.  It is fun to watch.  Several times yesterday I thought about how much I love where we live.  We have made great friends and started some fun traditions.  We are lucky to live in the USA and the great state of Texas!

Road Trippin' to Oklahoma...

We started our summer road trip stopping at Uncle Terry's house in Fort Worth.  His neighborhood feels like stepping back in time because of the clothes lines and 1950's flare.  
It is always good to see John's Uncle and Aunt.  They are so hospitable to our family.  We enjoyed a yummy breakfast, soccer in their backyard, and chocolate cake.
From our early morning walk around Terry's.
We then traveled on to OKC to visit the Gregory clan.  Singing scripture power with Grandma and baking with the easy bake oven.
Swimming in Uncle Seth's pool.
 Oklahoma sunsets can compete with the Bahamas!




 Our day at the zoo with Aunt Catie and cousins.  

 These two remind me of the old fashioned girls in the photos.  


 The kids always have fun at Grandma's house!

 One evening we went kayaking on Uncle Seth's lake.  Here is cousin Jake out fishing.
 We spent lots of time playing outside.  Grandma Gregory bought a beach cruiser bike that we all took turns riding.  We also enjoyed visiting with Nan.
 Grandma Gregory's and Nan's new dog, Clyde.  
We spent the latter-half of the week at Keystone Lake where we rented these comfortable cabins.  
 There were 13 cousins total.  So many playmates!  

 A friendly game of horse shoes.
 Uncle Jay and Uncle Seth.  John's brothers always hide from the camera.  
 We all took turns with meals.  My sisters-in-law are great cooks!  

 Such good cooks, we had to take a lot of walks to work off all the good food we ate.  
 The Gregorys on parade.  

 We didn't do a lot out on the lake because of dangerous flood levels but we enjoyed some superb sunsets, s'mores, and watching fireflies.   




We are so lucky to have such a great extended family that is just a day of driving away.  And Oklahoma is a wonderful place to visit.  We look forward to our next trip!
