July 4th 2009

We had a great time at uncle Paul and Robyn's house again this year. Thank you Paul and Robyn for having all over! We tubed, knee boarded, wake boarded, swam, shopped, watched an amazing fire work show, ate, ate and ate! Good times!!

Look at these two silly girls....they light up my world and are the loves of my life!

They are getting very close and are almost inseparable. Well, until one is getting something the other doesn't. But for the most part they are starting to become the best of friends.

I decided that I would try teaching Skyler how to knee board..I didn't think she would be able to do it because she is not the most daring little girl or toughest. But we tried.
Here I am giving all the instructions on how to do it.

A little blurry but look at how serious she was. :o) I was sooooo very proud of her. Not only did she try but she even did it. Even after she fell, she wanted to do it again. A total proud momma day!!!

This is what I caught Madison doing in the boat...gross....but me being the best mom, I took a picture for entertaining purposes before getting onto her and making her stop. hehe....great photo to show the boys later on.

The sun had just gone down and the moon was up and we were waiting for the fireworks to start. (Only 5 in our boat and the rest in Paul's pontoon boat beside us)

hmmmm....I tried to get a photo of all the boats that were out and it didn't turn out very good. But take my word for it there were a bunch.

The girls decided that they wanted to watch from the water....I was a bit worried about fish nibbling their toes....don't they eat at night? But it didn't happen and they were much cooler in the water than we were in the boat. Gotta love Texas heat.

When the weekend was over all four of us crashed hard. No one like Madison though....this is how she fell asleep. She was SOUND asleep...snoring, drooling and all! Too funny!
