High Five America

Our 4th actually started on the 1st this year with an amazing show put on by Cross Church (3 huge crosses). They almost converted me with this show it was so magical.

We snagged some pretty sweet grass right on the lake and the kids oooed and awed with every bang.

On the actual 4th Easy helped some friends put together a giant 100ft slip-n-slide. After a few test runs of getting clawed by the grass (man this year has been dry) they threw some tarps and blankets under it and it was smooth sailing...with of course, the occasional wipe out, face plant, clothesline, and butt grab (sorry babe - i was catching you fast and it was just the most logical thing to do).

Thanks Christy!! What a blast!

Holidays like the 4th are so magical and I always reminisce on how much I loved it as a kid with so much family around boating, BBQing, setting off fireworks, swimming in my cousins pool, lounging on the hammock, eating amazing food.

Since we have never really had family around I have always felt like our holiday's don't quite compare.

You know what though? This year rocked. We have been blessed with great friends here that really know how to party. I love it! This year was magical for us and our kids.


Giant slip-n-slide. Pony rides. Sparklers. Best Arkie friends. BBQ. Sparklers. HUGE (surprisingly legal) fireworks.
