July 4th

Blog Fail again on my part. I can't seem to keep up.

In the past few weeks, the girls have finished swim lessons, we had pictures taken of the four of us (mainly the girls since poor Annie has zero pictures in our entire house), our favorite (ok....our only) cousins came to visit, and I'm growing bigger by the minute, wondering how I'm going to last through this 100 degree summer. Oh, did I mention our AC went out for a few days? Yeah that was awesome. It's going to have to be replaced, which wasn't in the budget for this summer, but is just one more reminder that no matter how much we think we are in control, we're not.

We had a fantastic 4th of July this year, celebrating how we always do, in Peachtree City with family. I stinkin love this holiday and I'm really not sure why. It's crowded, hot, humid, and we're all exhausted by the end....but we keep coming back for more :)

James and Lucy at the parade....we left the babies at home again this year to nap. I'm glad we did because it was hot and I'm sure I would have had to hold Annie the entire time, which would have just doubled my already-doubled body heat.

James super excited waving to the firemen.

After the parade we went back to The Campbell's for swimming, lunch, naps, and dinner.
Sweet babies eating across from each other.

Thunderstorms? Lightning? Intense rain? No problem. We're still gonna go to the fireworks. No question. Fortunately the storms stopped just in time for us to finish dinner and head to the golf course for our fireworks stakeout.

Cursing my Nikon for the blurriness.....

Our mandatory annual family photo. Please ignore the frizz on Lucy and I. It was crazy hot and humid.

Lilly and Lucy. So glad the Barnard kids could come join us!

The sparklers were a huge hit!

Happy 4th! We are home recovering/sleeping today....well, kids are sleeping. I'm blogging to avoid folding laundry.

Haha you make me laugh=). Your pics are great! Makes me sad we couldn't be there--James told me how much he wished he could be there. Looking forward to next year!
