Happy 10th of July!

We are really still here - we have just had a crazy summer. For about 5 days now I have been trying to find time to post pictures of our Independence Day celebrations. On the 3rd we went to the Southlake fireworks. They were good and the boys had fun. We went with my step dad's family so there were lots of kids for them to play with. I didn't get many good pictures from that night.
On the 4th we went to Lake Grapevine and spent the day swimming in the lake. They had wonderful fireworks and it was so much fun to watch them from the boat - even though we were close enough to have it rain ashes on us.
Camden was so excited about using a tube on the lake - until it was time to get on. We got the tube in the water and told him to get on but he didn't want to. So I, being the mean mommy that I am, told him he had to. For about a week all I had heard about was going to the lake to use his tube and I knew if he didn't I would hear about how he wanted to do it for the next week. So this picture looks like he is smiling, but it is fake. Even though I am right next to him holding on to him. (I just wasn't about to put a picture of me for the whole world to see after I had been in the lake out in the sun all day!)

I also want to wish my wonderful little brother a happy 25th birthday! Clint, you are an amazing brother and uncle. I am so proud of what you are doing now. I can't believe you are 25!!! Speaking of Clint - those of you who haven't heard him and his group Legacy, they are going to be in the metroplex soon. Check out their website - - for the complete calender. They will be at Mansfield Church of Christ July 29 and Saturn Road Church of Christ July 30. If you are anywhere in the neighborhood go see them. You'll love it!
