sparklers...


We finally broke open the sparklers we found in the camper. We had a hard time getting them lit at first~who knows how old they were?!? But we finally got most of them to work.
This picture cracked me up, Spencer is not usually my cautious child, yet, he looks a tad freaked out by this new adventure! I am sure we did them before, but I don't think he remembered it!

Dylan giving Jayden a lift to try to fry a little worm they saw dangling from a branch! Luckily for the worm, they were a little on the short side!

Easton enjoyed them, once we explained the fact that ~as long as you hold on to the very end, you won't get burned! He just needed the little safety report first and all was well!

Anaya, on the other hand, was completely freaked out!! Speaking of freaked out...

look what her crazy brothers did to her! The funny thing was that she let them! Believe me, she can certainly hold her own if she wants to. She was enjoying all the attention. They put nearly every bow, headband, and pony tail holder on her as possible! Then they gave her a pacifier they found... she thought she was pretty cool all decked out that way! Crazy kids, they are so much fun!

HA!! Love it!! I wonder what our boys would do if I gave them free reign over Isabelle Kate's "pretties"...thinking I just might have to try that...

Oh, BTW, yes, we were good friends with Julie and her daughters, the woman who moved into 39 after you left- she spoke of the family who lived there prior, but I never made the connection. We lived a few houses up on the left. Not very many happy memories associated with that place- it' so hard to be happy about one thing while devastated about another, all at the same time...

Take care!!
