We love our country.

We love our family.

We love Jesus.

Did you go to a cookout on the fourth of July?

What is your favorite cookout food?

I am partial to my Mom’s potato salad.

It is to-die-for.

LOVE Kaishon lighting that firework. And, "little piggy-tail gal"...I could eat her up!

Beautiful, B!!

Mari said...

Looks like an all American Fourth! I love all those smiles!

Marilyn said...

Yeah, me too on the potato salad. I always go for the most fattening thing. No cookout on the 4th but we do love America!

Tracy P. said...

Look at all that happiness! We had a cookout at church after the service. Very fun. And fireworks with neighbors. I love the burgers. We never cook them at home because I would go crazy eating them. YUM!

TechnoBabe said...

We were loving the rain all day on fourth of July. Your pictures say it all. Wonderful family.

Looks like a great time with great people. I love that bent up lighter, the whipped cream in Kaishon's mouth, and all those cheeky babies!

MsBabyPlan said...

Your pictures are always perfect, from the close ups and the panoramics. I love the one with Kaishon's on the top of the car: I see it as a symbol of freedom!

myrelish said...

Amazing photos. So many beautiful windows to a soul filled with love and laughter. If I celebrated the 4th, I would want it to be like yours.

lizcooper said...

Thank you so much for your beautiful comments on my blog! It's so cool to me how I've gotten to "know" people and begin relationships with them through blogs!

I LOVE the picture of Kaishon and another child laying on top of the car...in black and white! It's very artistic! And I love the one of him with whipped cream in his mouth. And that little blond-headed babe is just beautiful! YOUR family is beautiful as well!

Dianne said...

so many happy beautiful faces - all colors, all ages
it's perfect!!

I love the boys hanging over the top of the car
and all those chubby baby hands and cheeks and feet

I make killer macaroni salad
and Mac and cheese
all southern style

Matty said...

Gosh, your pictures are just wonderful. Colorful, cute, and full of smiles. You have a great looking family.

My favorite BBQ foods? Burgers, chicken, baked beans and deviled eggs.

Mental P Mama said...

Oh. Those. Babies. I need to spend some time with one!

Mariah said...

I thought I loved the B&W with the boys on the car but then I saw the Canned Whip!!! I am a sucker for that stuff. Makes me want to go get some:)

Nurse Nancy said...

Looks like great fun was had by all!

Love Letters To China said...

What great pictures! I started cracking up when I saw the one of your son squirting the whip cream in his mouth. We do the same thing in our house. Too funny!

It looks like you had an AWESOME fourth!! So many cute kids and adorable moments that you captured!!

Looking at Kaishon with the Reddi Whip took me back to my childhood.....I loved it when my Mom kept it in the house. My sister and I always were sneaking a little......just like Kaish...shot it straight into our mouths!!

Have a wonderful week....see you soon!! Can't wait!
