4th of July

This forth of July we were excited to have cousins come to town from Atlanta. Pierson and Maylin love to have company come visit. They were super excited this time because we had just gotten to see these guys in Ohio two weeks prior. The memory of how fun they were was fresh in their minds. That afternoon we spent hours in the pool splashing around and having a great time. We had taco's for dinner and then headed out for fireworks. 
all smiles for the fireworks! 
 Maylin LOVES to take pictures! I'll spare you the dozens upon dozens she took but here are a couple that turned out pretty cute. Rusty and Cheryl.
Carol and Sara.  
 The kids waited in line for Italian Ice. Left from Right: Tatiana, Parker, Tyler, Maylin, Pierson and Carter.
 Full moon shining over the festival.
 Pierson video taped the whole fireworks show! He is so precious and always makes sure that he documents fun events so that he never forgets.
 Maylin insisted that I take a picture of every firework! Each time I put the camera down she would say "MOMMY! Take pictures!"
They both have a need to capture the moment.  I can't help but think that it has something to do with the fact that they have one small photo album with about 30 pictures from the first 4 and 5 years of their lives. They practically have nothing to document or prove anything from the first part of their lives. Sometimes it almost feels as if they are afraid if they don't document by pictures, video or drawings that they will forget it forever and loose control of their future again.
 A family God put together. I wouldn't have it ANY other way!
 A group picture after the fireworks! What a fun evening!
Cheryl picked some balloons for Maylin. Thanks Cheryl it made for a fun car ride home! ;) But Maylin was so pleased!
