Fourth of July, part 2...or, Friends, Franks & Fireworks!

Some of our favorite people are the Monahans and we were so glad to be able to hang out with them for an entire day (well, what was left of the day by the time we finally showed up). The Vonderkinders are in LOVE with the baby Monahans...Taylor escorts Isaiah around and they entertain each other for hours. We got to hang out with Laura's brother and some other friends of theirs who have twin girls whom Morgen really hit it off with. I wish I had pictures of Morgen running around, a twin in each hand, or chasing each other in circles around our little picnic site. I have never seen Morgen make such good friends...it was so cute! We all had a great time...

Laura & Liam laughing...(great shot, Dave!)

Andy worked for over an hour to get Isaiah to fall asleep...

Yay! The little guy's finally out!

Korah couldn't get enough of the twins' little brother (another Liam). He was a very cute baby.
Notice Micah rooting through somebody's Barbie backpack, uninvited...

Korah's going to be a great babysitter someday soon. I told her changing our baby's diapers (come October) will look great on her resume.

This is what Isaiah thought of the fireworks.

Waiting for fireworks, everyone's playing with their kids...pretty sweet scene. Morgen, to our surprise, actually wanted to be tossed in the air, but the picture shows she was still pensive, unlike Micah, who spreads out and never wants to stop. Maybe he'll be an astronaut someday...

Fireworks were fun... Micah just laughed for the first 5 minutes of it once the booming started. After a while it just got mesmerizing and started putting them to sleep. When we finally got to the car to go home, they all decided they were parched and whined for water as if they'd been stranded on a desert island for three days. From "ooooh, aaahhhhh" and laughing to complete irrational meltdown in 60 seconds. It's so obvious they're tired it has the complete opposite effect on us and we have to laugh, or we start singing goofy songs and acting silly until they are throwing shoes at us from the back seat. And then we drive through BK and get them all waters...
Thanks Andy and Laura, for a great 4th of July. It always does something good in our core to be with you. :)
