Happy Birthday, America!

Pursuant to Helena's schedule, we celebrated the 4th of July on Saturday the 2nd.  Helena always does a great fireworks display and we definitely wanted that incorporated into our evening.  So, with no further ado, here are some images and highlights from the Morris.  We used Evite to send out some festive invitations:
Rob and Caroline were dressed in their festive best.  Okay, maybe not best, but they did look pretty cute.  I rarely dress them matchy, but today I was one proud mama...on a side note, why do I always have one child talking or one child not looking right at the camera?  Ugh.
We had some really yummy food!  I have been blog-stalking all my new friends out there and one thing I have learned is I have much to learn when it comes to photography.  So I will not be sharing my buffet pics today.  Trust me when I tell you about our succulent BBQ chicken and ribs; juicy corn on the cob; potato salad; pasta salad; baked beans; and a summer salad topped with fresh fruit, pecans, feta cheese, and raspberry vinegarette!  Delish!

The kiddos kept cool on the slip-n-slide.  Fun times!
Madison, Miles, Rob all checking out the situation...
"Cheese" Madison
Don'tcha just love this action shot?  Go Miles!
This is pretty much the bulk of Caroline's S-N-S action...
Meanwhile, the adults were having a blast with friends, family and food!
Aren't this mother-daughter duo beautiful?  That's "Aunt Khaki" and Kylee!
At any given time my back porch was full of family and friends.
Well, hello there! Kylee, Grandaddy Tony, and my sweet Bobby.
So, anywho, we had a blast.  We ate, drank, and were merry until it was dark.  Then we headed to Old Town to catch the fireworks show.  Helena really puts on a great show.  I forgot my camera, so I'm at the mercy of my cousin to email me some pictures of us hanging out waiting on everything to start.  Check back for updates if she sends them.  For now, enjoy these:

I hope your 4th of July celebration was safe and memorable!  Have a great July.  Can you believe the summer is at its midway point?

Until then,
