4th of July

This wasn't our typical 4th of July. Tyson's cousins from Colorado were here to visit. We started out around noon with a crazy thunder storm. I mean crazy! The wind was blowing so had for about 10 minutes and it POURED for about an hour flooding things fast, especially our dry stream bed that quickly filled up with flowing water. The wind was blowing so hard it snapped some of the oak trees. Our neighbor Antonio's truck was a victim to a huge oak branch breaking. We ran outside moved our cars from out from under the trees and grabbed tools and covered tools moving things out of the pouring rain. We were soaked and thought that we would have a little fun since we were already wet. I swear we are not rednecks.

In the car ready to head over to the Schewie's to go swimming.
Now we are at the Schewie's swimming pool with the cousins from Colorado, McKenzie, and her friend Lauren. It is always fun at their pool, the slide is a big hit. Tyson brought a basketball hoop and we played a game of water basketball.

A game of WB (water basketball, not women's basketball)

Cousins from Colorado (Parker, Alex (Wayne's girlfriend), Wayne, and Clint).

More Basketball

After swimming at the Schewie's we headed over to my sister-in-law's mother's house for the rest of the evening. There was MORE swimming, yummy hamburgers, and then we watched the fireworks. The boys were exhausted and fell asleep on the way home.

Jumping from the rocks, and swimming.

Happy Independence Day!!!
