4th of July Block Party

Our neighborhood had it's annual block party for the 4th of July weekend! We had a GREAT time and the kids had a blast. There was lots of food, great music, and a big water slide for the kids. Overall, a great time! We sure will miss this neighborhood when we move.

There are many girls in our neighborhood. Poor Karson has to be the only younger boy!

The water slide!

We decided that Kipton should stay with Nana & Papaw because it was so hot and I had a lot to do to prepare for the party. I am pretty sure Karson was okay with Kipton being gone because he got to have all of daddy's attention.

Here is Kevin and I on the left and our best friends Erin & Josh

Daddy & Karson enjoying their sparklers.

(On the note of sparklers I don't think we'll be doing them anymore. Kevin got really bad burned with it and luckily we never let Karson hold it by himself. I have heard of many bad stories with just a sparkler.)

Any of you have any stories about fireworks to beware of?

I am a little late with getting my pictures up. Kevin has had some time off and we have been busy taking the boys to a few new places. Hope everyone is having a great summer!

I was also looking for a good place to celebrate my son’s birthday. I’ve already gone through some Chicago event venues. He’s turning twelve this year. I was thinking of celebrating at home first, but the guest list just went out of hand.
