Happy 4th of July

We had a great time celebrating this year despite the rainy weather. We spent the holiday at Shannon and Tyler's house playing games and catching up with friends. Tyler rigs up an awesome display from the top of his boat house next to Lake Washington.

Most of the time was spent inside eating burgers and salads, but we played a super competitive game of "Cornhole" outside under the deck. It was a BLAST and since the grand prize was $$$ Matt and I got pretty serious about winning. However, we came in 3rd and then watched as my parents beat Kari and Gerod for the cash! Go Mom and Dad!When it finally got dark we all huddled together under blankets and sweatshirt hoods to watch Tyler's fireworks display. Because everything was so damp, Tyler had to keep re-lighting the fuse. But we were NOT disappointed. It was as amazing as the last 5 years we have attended. And Sam, who was only 2 months old last year, slept through 90% of both shows.

Happy Birthday America!

Awww...I wish we had fireworks in Arizona. Although I could not afford a spread like that. Or a boat like that. Turns out I'm jealous. But it looks like you guys had a super fun time!

you are so amazing!! thanks for posting the pictures, everyone is so impressed with your work! so glad the prize money went home with the baileys, i hear they were tough competition! i wouldnt know, since i was out in the first round. i think a little seafair party is in order to make up for the crappy weather.
