Celebrating Independence Day!

He started out tired,

but once Graham sensed all the excitement, he had to join the party. We were afraid the fireworks would be a bit too noisy and scary but he surprised us-- Graham didn't even flinch!

Dad treated us to a real live "Paul-sized" fire to toast our marshmallows.

Abby (seen here on her belly) gets the award this year for most-dedicated as she tried to find a way to get close enough to the fire to brown the marshmallow without setting herself on fire. I think her foot may have been in the embers at one point, but it was a valiant effort none the less.

A good time was had by all!


  1. Is it just me, or did anyone else notice the only person who looked good in these pics was Melissa?

  2. By the way, in the picture of me behind Jason, it should be noted he was choking on a S'more bit and I was SAVING HIS LIFE, and not mounting him as it appears.

    That's my story, and i'm sticking to it. Thank you.

  3. Jason doesn't like s'mores. Thus he doesn't eat them. ;)

  4. Way to out our husband-brother love Abby....

  5. Finally! Someone on my team
