4th of July

It's becoming a fast tradition to host a 4th of July party at our house.  Last year it was rainy during the day but cleared enough toward the end to still do some fireworks.  This year it was PERFECT weather!  Sunny, not too hot, and a slight breeze!  We set up lots of outdoor games--croquet, badmitten, horseshoes, and the baby pool for the kids.

We started with food of course though... The menu? Sloppy joes, veggie salad, fruit salad, watermelon, and chips.

 Then play time!

a pie for my mom's "birthday cake". My new FAVORITE cheesecake!  Sooo easy to make and THE creamiest!
Ward, Linda, and Kara were so sweet to bring Eli an early b-day gift...

He loved this and carried it around all night!
once the sun finally started to go down we played a few "games" of badmitten

 Hot and sweaty we all went inside to cool off a little while we waited for it to get dark outside to do fireworks which I did not photograph.  We had such a fun day!!!  Thanks, family, for coming!  Looking forward to next year!
