family fun on the 4th...

we went to my sister in laws for the 4th, we usually do as they have a great pool and we all love to play in the pool.
as always there is a ton of awesome food.
 Bradley LOVED the pool... he loved all the men and women who were willing to throw him all over the pool.  He  has so many grown cousins who will play rough and keep him entertained.
I slowed for a second yesterday to realise that of all of us there we have 3 people who have been burned badly and lived to tell of it... with little evidence of the horrors that being burned entails... we are so blessed.
 there are always the keep the ball in the air contests... and they are a hoot ...

Bradley would jump off the side and kick about anywhere in the pool ... thankfully there are uncles who will step in and with a word get wild children to obey the safety rules...
 there are Aunts and Uncles abound and it is fun for everyone to cool off and play.
 Fathers and sons to dunk... because we all know that all is fair in love and dunking. :)
 older cousins to help the little cousins as they learn to swim and play...
 and to hug on when the thunder starts and everyone has to get out and have some home made ice creams...Strawberry and peach YUMMMMY.
 and Aunts hair clips to play with while floating about
 and grandmas to swim to ...while more cousins play ....
and it was good and fun and those who were not there were missed so much....and new memories were made...hope you all have had as good of a holiday as we did.

That is and looks so cool! I'm envious of your pool fun with all the family and friends. This is truly a fun way to celebrate America's birthday!

I almost wish it was summertime here again now!
Swimming is my all time favourite thing to do in summer.
Shame some (MJ & Halo) family were missing from the get together.

You all look like you're having so much fun. I'm glad you had such a nice day.
A pool real pulls it all together.
