Happy 6th Birthday Katherine and 4th of July

Ok..Ok. I am behind on this post... been busy and lazy at the same time. Katherine's 6th birthday was June 30th.. yes.. 6th birthday. I still can't believe that our baby girl just turned 6. How the years have flown by! Our sweet daughter, we love you so much and are so proud of you! You are so loving, caring, smart, silly, pretty, drama queen :), creative, and an amazing big sister! For her birthday, we had a Luau at our house. BUT first we had a t-ball game that morning, then we had about 15 kids at the party that evening for games, pizza, cake, ice cream, presents, and of course running around the house. After the party, Katherine had 4 other girls spend the night for a slumber party. So technically her party didn't end until the next day. All the girls were very well behaved and we had a blast. So the next day we have a very very lazy day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA! (Or as Colin was saying half the day.. Happy Birthday CAPTAIN AMERICA!) 

We had a great 4th of July. Matt and the kids put out our flags first thing in the morning, then we went to Matt's parents house for their neighborhood parade. The kids loved it and got lots of candy! Then they went swimming for awhile and we had lunch. It was a very nice day. Then we came home and had my family over for dinner and fireworks. The kids (and of course me) LOVED the firework show and even got to meet up with some friends durning it. But at the end, we had to say goodbye to my parents as they are now on a  2-3 month trip up North. But we follow them on their blog and Skype while they are gone. 
God Bless America!
