July 4th

What a crazy day July 4th was this year!  We decided it would be great fun to attend the Realty Executives 4th of July bash downtown...oh my, was that wonderful!  Our friend Debra McCormick throws a party like no other!  (Well, except Audra & Kelly...those two are down right amazing!) We were treated to a pancake breakfast, tables with tents covering them just in case of rain, a balloon animal artist, a face painter, goodie bags for the kids, access to a bathroom, really the list just goes on & on!  Not only that, but we were able to set up our chairs across the street for some of the best parade watching around!  Here's a little glimpse into our day (photos are had your choice me blogging or got the blogging):

David, my nephew who lives in Tulsa.

Ray's new way of smiling...maybe because his big brother does it?  

Oh, look.  AJ is doing it too.

Kendall chose a giraffe for her balloon animal.

Nate wanted sunglasses...the balloon girl had to improvise.

They could have picked monkeys, dogs, pigs, palm trees...what do they choose?  A sword for David & AJ & a dagger for Ray. 

Jory, Audra's granddaughter.  Such a beautiful girl!

And JJ, Audra's grandson.  So happy to see him smile!

Our friend, Dave, the motor cop.

Our friend Cindy's granddaughter, Dylan.  I love how she stacked her sun glasses!

Our nephew, Logan, who truly has a smile always.

Our nephew, Ben, who normally looks at us like this...but don't let it fool you...he's a great kid!

Apparently the correct way to eat cotton candy.

I'm sure their parents were quite pleased I sugared them up before sending them home!

Our nephew, Sean, was walking in the parade, so this is the best shot I have. 

Cindy's grandson, Max.  I have about a dozen adorable photos of this kid I need to send to Cindy.

An old friend, Sherrine, that I have not seen in ages.  Too long, in fact.

Audra & Jory, who flat out refused to look at me.  But at least she smiled!

  1. No pictures of you?

    I think that may be the only picture - ever - of Jori and I - since I normally am on the other side of the camera! Thank you for letting us tag along! Audra
