celebrate with a bang!

We started the festivities on the 3rd at the park. We met Spongebob, and jumped and jumped and jumped!

Checking out the helicopter, and Marissa, Taylor and I on the rock climbing wall…

The kids got to ride the train. This little guy chose to sit by the cute girl instead of Luke, what a smooth mover!

I also lost every race through the obstacle course, here’s Nathan already standing while I tumble my way out!

We got a great spot for watching the fireworks, if only we could have put up a 50 foot wall to keep smokers away!


Quite a show, thanks Smyrna! Luke was mesmerized. Of course Natalie hit her breaking point about 8 pm and fireworks didn’t start until 9:15, so she was quite the chatterbox throughout the show, and spent more time trying to get everyone to plug their ears or look at her than actually watching the fireworks, heehee silly girl.

Independence Day was beautiful! Aaron and Dawn took me and the kids out on the boat while Darin had to work. We had a blast riding the tube, swimming around, and wake surfing – so awesome. I can’t wait to do it again! Even Dad got in the water!


We ended the night shooting fireworks off at home with Daddy (Luke was in heaven) and catching the show in McMinnville. Thanks Dr Pepper for sponsoring the fun, and we love your drink! Smile
