Summer Fun!

Last weekend we celebrated the 4th of July with family at Shafer Lake. Our annual barbecue at Mike & Jill's was a blast as always :) Mimi brought Kendall and Olivia along for the fun. Of course I was busy with the camera and took about 300 photos! Here are a few of the highlights...

 They are so beautiful.

First they did a little tubing.

Look at that expression!

Then some swimming.

and jumping (with several outtakes to get it just right).

A little game of beanbag toss.

Check out that form ;)

On to a game of barefoot soccer using a volleyball.

Get out of my way she says :)

Cousin Lindsey waiting for a pass.

Then there was the accidental "booby" grab, they were both pretty embarrassed :)

Love this photo of Kendall that I took looking down from the deck.

I haven't mastered the art of nightime photography, it doesn't help that I keep forgetting my tripod.

We ended our night watching the boat parade at dusk, eating ice cream sundaes and watching fireworks...a perfect ending to a perfect day! You may have noticed Matthew is missing in these photos. He was off with the "older" kids, playing games and texting, too cool for all the silly antics. Oh...and soccer isn't his game :}

Hope you had a safe and happy 4th of July!
