4th of July

We had a GREAT 4th of July weekend!  We started off Thursday by taking some pics of our little cutie in the backyard before heading out to a friends house for the afternoon.  Clearly, Hannah wanted her picture taken....  Isn't her little shirt so cute?  That's her handprint, she had a lot of fun helping Mommy make it.

Here is the original shirt...  I can't get it to rotate so it's sideways but you get the idea.  It was never finished because after painting the fourth blue stripe on it Austin brought it to my attention that the stripes on the American flag are red and the stars are blue.  Ummm....I totally knew that.  Duh.  This was just my practice shirt.  ;)

Happy 4th of July from our little firecracker!  From the smirk on her face in this picture she deserved the firecracker title that day. :)

Trying to get a pic of Hannah and Daddy 

As soon as we got to our friends house and Hannah saw the pool it was on.  She immediately sat down and started taking her shoes off saying "Pease Mommy.  Pease." asking me so nicely to let her swim.  That was her Daddy's job for the next THREE hours!  She didn't get out of that pool for anything until it was time to eat!  I'm so happy we have a little water baby!

Family picture before pool time!

She loved the American flags everywhere.

Pulling in all the pool floats

So much fun!

On Saturday we headed down to Galveston to spend the day with our family at my Aunt's bayhouse.  Hannah was dressed for the occasion. 

All the girls!

Pops and Hannah.  It really wasn't even that hot right next to the water but this girl gets SO red when she's playing outside!

Putting her sunglasses on the pelican.  So nice to share.

Can you believe it?!  Hair!!!  And curls!!  I love it!

The best picture we could get of Mommy and Hannah.  And her plate.

Silly girl putting her parade decorations on her face.

Leah yelled "Hannah, lets go to sleep on the stairs!"  So they did.  ;)  You like how Hannah fake sleeps?  At least Leah pretends to sleep in a normal position because I promise you, Hannah doesn't sleep just face down at home.  Ha.

Trying to get comfortable on their "comfy beds".

Haha.  It's so cute to watch them play together.

Hugs!  Apparently Leah likes to snuggle.

Then it was pool time!  We brought our pool from home for them to play in. 


So much fun!

After swimming we headed to the neighborhood parade!

Hannah and Haley were ready to go in their decked out wagon!

Parked on the side of the road just waiting for all the action.  We took three different forms of transportation, a wagon, a golf cart and Pops' truck so everyone would have a place to sit.

Tracy ready for the parade!

A few beads were thrown before the parade got started, the girls loved it.

Lainey and Hannah

Pops with Hannah, Joseph and Bella

The beginning of the parade. 

There were all kinds of entertaining vehicles in it!  This one played carnival type music.

This fire truck carried Uncle Sam

This was a party bus throwing fun stuff

And a golf cart of red solo cups!

Look at Miss Sassy's stance.  All the kids were so cute, they LOVED running after all the stuff the parade people were throwing!  It was so fun!

Picking up their prizes

This was taken not even 10 mins into the drive home.  I'd say it was a fun day!

And we can't forget this girl!  We were dog sitting all the dogs while my parents and Tracy were in Galveston for the weekend.  Minnie turned 9 on July 4th so we had a little celebration for her back at our house.  :)  She was super excited as you can see.

Then on Sunday this happened....This is the scratch I talked about earlier that led us to buying her big girl bed earlier than we expected.  Miss Hannah just flipped right out of her bed and hit her face on the night stand.  Poor baby!  She didn't let it slow her down of course.

I hope everyone had a great holiday!
