Fourth of July Fun!

This year celebrates the 50th year my inlaws' family have been part of a local parade! My mom and I made signs (mom designed them...I just helped cut stuff out...haha!) and then Chris and the kids and others in his family got to ride through the parade on their horse and buggies! :)

Above and below are pics of my three kiddos with their cousins! :)

Isn't that toooo cute?......

All loaded up and ready to ride through the parade!......

Chris's grammie and her boys....Rich, Rodger, Russ, Randy and Ron!...(Grammie's sister had 5 boys too! Can you imagine!?! 10 boys in that family and no girls!).....

Riding through the parade....Chris is in the back of the wagon in the overalls <3......

Chris's brother, Dan, and Chris.......

My aunt and uncle in their jeep with their son Jesse in the back...and my dad sitting in the passenger seat ~ waving! :) ......

After a busy morning at the parade...we headed home for a few minutes...then went off to Chris's great aunt's place (grammie's sis) for a surprise 80th birthday for her! It was a really nice time! We stayed a few hours and then from there...went out to our good friends, Chris and Heather's place for a cookout and then watched fireworks! :)

The kids playing catch with our friend, Chris......(Jaxson is posing...silly boy!)......

Chris and X getting ready to watch the fireworks....
