We spent the 4th up in Thousand Oaks with Caleb's family. We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. My SIL, MIL and I even got a break from the kids and got to have lunch out ... and take a trip to JoAnn's for quilt fabric! On the evening of the 4th the whole lot of us headed up to Bethany Baptist, which sits on the top of the hill, where there was quite the festival going on (complete with bounce houses and a water slide!). At 9:00 the Thousand Oaks fireworks dazzled us all. Josephine was a champ through it all, even with two super late nights.
We tried a photo shoot with all the kids in their red, white and blue gear. As you can see, my only child was the only real problem. Its definitely time for a sibling. Look how calm and collected all FOUR of Lucas and Christie's kids are!
Uh oh ... Josie and Gma are starting to lose it!
And, we're done. At least Josie is.
