July 4th 2012

4th of July was nothing but fun this year (well really every year) for the boys and mom and dad too.  We seriously went from one party to the next and got to have tons of fun at each!!

We started our day out at our 1st Annual Neighborhood 4th of July Bike Parade!!! We decorated up the bikes and the wagon and headed to Colony Park!!

Bryan and Owen led the Parade with a boom box in the back of the wagon to keep everyone in a patriotic state of mind...It was soooooo cute.  Everyone else followed behind...

Isaac rode his bike and did 4 laps around the park, we were amazed at how well he did considering he learned to ride that bike only a couple weeks before

Adam and Kevin thought they were pros and were cute as can be!!

After the bike parade in which we took second place as a family for most patriotic, which got us some gift cards to a local restaurant that just opened up...yum, We headed over to the pavilion in our neighborhood to have a bbq with some of our friends from the hood.  The Davis' and their roommates were there and we had too much fun playing yard games, such as swing ball (I was unbeatable), lasso golf, and bocce ball!!

 Debbie and Brian looking cute as ever

Emily playing bocce ball with us!!

Tyler, he and Bryan won us our victory over the other team!!

 After we got good and tired there, we piled into the car for a headed up to Studio City.  We love going to Kauru's place for the 4th because we get to see Kauru and her cute kids that are now all grown up (yikes) and tons of our other old friends that we miss so much since we moved down to Anaheim.
The boys love the awesome fireworks ...well maybe not Isaac so much, but he will someday!!

Yes he stayed like that the entire fireworks show until the end when he decided to cry and wouldn't let Bryan put him down...

on the other hand, Owen slept through the whole show

 We love celebrating the birth of our country.  We are so grateful for all those men and women who made it what it is today and that keep us safe and allow us are freedom still!!
