And then there’s Ashlynn, who can barely contain her Independence Day excitement.

IMG_20120704_170707I think Lewis (actual spelling Louis) might be the most popular kid at this party.

IMG_20120704_170933We’ve reached this awkward stage of deciding whether to play with the other younger (horror!) kids or hang with the adults.

IMG_20120704_191507This is what neighborhood parties are all about… wading pools, water fights, BBQs, bike riding, and doing life together. Blessed to live on such an amazing block.

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

Looks like a ton of fun! We missed you though. Love the photos of the jello shots and of Hudson loving on a baby. He is like his dad. :)
