the 4th

This year we spent the 4th with all the Moores in Houston.
Oh man Brandon warned me that the Moores love all things 4th of July,
and boy was he right. 

Just imagine a garage filled with fireworks.
And then imagine more fireworks.
And then maybe a few more fireworks.
I guess everything is bigger in Texas

Now imagine countless hours in the pool.
The girls are relaxing and drinking diet cokes, the kids are playing, 
and the boys are coming up with every kind of swimming competition possible.
It was heaven

Oh and don't worry, Avery had no shortage of attention.
Between her "Bob bob", 
as she calls him
 her cousins, aunts, uncles, and great grandparents loving on her
we hardly saw her all week.

I honestly can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed.
It was definitely one of, if not the best 4th of July i've ever had.
I am literally counting down the days to next years celebration.

*Special Thanks to my father in-law who hosted the shin-dig.
He sure knows how to throw a party!

Now enjoy picture overload!

*This is Avery with her cousin Liam. They were inseparable. They swam together for hours and when they were apart Liam would say "Mom I have to go, Avery needs me." 
It was one of the sweetest things i've ever seen.

Hope everybody had a Happy 4th!!
