Our 4th of July Celebration!!

We spent the day at the club and enjoyed all they had to offer!

The had cannonball and bellyflop competitions!

And gunny sack races after that!
Go Anna, Melissa, Abby, Sam and Madeline!

There was some stiff competition and we didn't win but we all had fun!

Next was Ava's age bracket!

And then Mia and Ellie!

Our sunny day turned cloudy but that didn't matter!

Mia came in 4th place- our best finish!
Emma was not happy that she is too old to partake in the activities.
She has a hard time understanding this since she thinks of herself as significantly younger.
Sarah understands and was fine with it.

Relay races with Dad's and kids!
Sarah is giving it her all!
We didn't win BUT we didn't lose either!

Hubby and Anna did the "kid toss"!

And there she goes!
By now hubby was exhausted!

So we went home and got ready for part 2 of our 4th of July celebration!

They quickly got sidetracked by our doggies so 
I just snapped away as my pictures sessions fell apart!

Best thing we ever did for our doggies was to adopt 13 children!

They get so so much love from them!

We tried for more pics out on the yard!

Loving this crew in their red, white and blues!

Sissy and Mimi love to get in the middle of the fun!

Ben is our biggest and newest boy so we had to run to the store to be sure he had red, white and blue to wear, too!

Em and El love this day!

Lots of tattoos!

Then it was off to dinner!

And a few rounds of BINGO!
Abby was our winner for the night!

We pool all the money together!
Last year we won $140

Our evening ended with fireworks!
It was such a fun time for everyone!
