The 3rd of July....

Here are a few pictures of how we spent our 4th of July weekend! Our local town was having fireworks on Saturday the 3rd. My aunt and uncle always graciously open up their home (conveniently located by the square where all the fireworks are set off) to lots of people. This is our first year going but we had such a pleasant time! Our friends the Thaxton's joined us and we had a really good time. This is the summer where Davis has repeatedly without being prompted (or really even sugguested) declared his best friend to be Avery. They have spent a ton of time together this summer and listening to them converse reminds me of an old couple. They are hilarious and show great concern for each other! I hope their friendship endures for years to come!

I always laugh at the picture below- it just might be one of my favorites because it captures this season of life so well. Avery has come to love trains too! The two of them play together in their own world so well.

And sometimes Noah likes to join in too! Avery does love herself some Baby Noah (despite the fact that he weighs more than she does)! Eating a little dinner on the cooler!
Avery is developing into a budding photographer. I'm sure she will start booking sessions soon, for those of you who are interested! :)
Right before the fireworks start! I had been slightly nervous about it but there was no need to be- they did GREAT! Even Noah enjoyed them.

And one of my favorite moments of the night was when almost everyone had left (we were trying to let traffic die down) and Davis was running around the back yard dancing to the music. The song "Life is a Highway" came one (which Davis associates with the movie Cars) and he danced & danced though he was beyond the point of exhausted. Noah clearly was out for the night all snuggled into Matt's arms! Though another picture that is not high in quality or technique but warms my heart to the fullest.
We had a WONDERFUL evening and I hope we make this an annual event! It was just that much fun! Thanks to all who helped throw the party!!!
