We spent the 4th of July at Calvary Community Church with the a bunch of the Albaeck clan! We got there early to stake out spots for the fireworks and then relaxed while the kids played in the grass.
Playing football with the cousins.
Dinner time!! We picked up sandwiches from Jersey Mike's and then had a picnic dinner.
Having fun with Auntie Beth!
The kids had so much fun playing with their cousins! And some of them (Christopher!!) just enjoyed relaxing and watching everything.
Silliness!! This girl sure loves to take selfies!
He's such a good big brother-- not only did he blow bubbles for her, but he let her blow bubbles ON him!
Everly and Tobey.
As the sun started to set, the kids started to settle down and played on the blankets.
Christopher and Ellie entertaining the littlest cousins-- and Lexie, ever the tomboy, still playing football.
Waiting patiently for the sun to set and the fireworks to start.
Auntie Beth was smart and packed glowsticks for all of the kids to play with while we waited!
More glowstick fun!
Crazy cousins playing in the dark.
Fireworks!! Happy birthday, America!!
All too soon, it was time to say goodbye to the California cousins! We always have so much fun with them when we visit!
