Forth of July fireworks

We set off fireworks with our neighbors.  Amber stepped on a sparkler and a firework landed on her chair and so I needed to protect her.  Jake thought it would be fun to sit with Amber!
Tyler was excited to be able to set off a few fireworks himself.  He was so lucky and had the best forth of July!!
Here is Allie with her friend Carlee.  They are cute little buddies.  
This was the one minute that Dave sat down.  The rest of the time he was figuring out how to make bombs and have fun with the fireworks.
This is Amber and Jake with our neighbors Avery and Blake.  They loves sparklers and had so much fun.  We enjoyed a late night and had fun with our neighbors.

Forth of July bike parade

We had a neighborhood bike parade.  The kids got to decorate their bikes or scooters and ride around the neighborhood for the forth of July.  They were so excited and had a lot of fun.
Here is Jake on his bike.  He loves riding his two wheeler and is really fast!!
Amber borrowed Tyler's old bike because her bike had a flat tire.  She didn't mind though.  It was blue for the forth of July!
Tyler had to ride his motorcycle.  He made sure that the number two was showing.  That was important to him.
When we got home Allie took Chloe for a ride.  Chloe likes rides on Allie's motor scooter.  It is really cute.  We had a fun afternoon with lots of neighbors.

Memorial day weekend.

When our neighbors were gone for memorial day we watched their dog and they said we could do smores in their back yard.  It was so much fun.  The kids and I enjoyed the weekend.  Dave was out of town.
Can you tell Jake loves smores?
I taught Tyler to make his first fire by himself.  He loved it!!
The weekend before his school teacher had her wedding reception.  Ms. Butcher is now Mrs. Stergeon.  She was an awesome teacher for Tyler!!

Brittany and Mika came to visit.

We were so lucky to have Brittany and Adrienne come to visit us.  Britt did the photo's for a wedding and we were just lucky to spend time with her and Mika!  Here is Allie with them.
Tyler wanted to hold her too but that moment she decided to not be happy.  Most of the time she was very happy.  She as just tired.
Mika and I had just the most amazing connection.  Her sweet spirit was so comforting to be around.  It was so fun to hold her and love her!!  I needed it.
Britt and I went to lunch with Jake and Mika.  Of course the whole lunch she was happy until we pulled out the camera.  Oh well.
I love Brittany!  She is beautiful and so talented!!  I feel blessed that I was able to spend time with her.  She is amazing!!
