Happy Birthday, America!

What an eventful, exciting 4th of July weekend! Hope you all had a fun, safe, time with family and friends. Happy Birthday, America!

The boys LOVE any kind of birthday party, so naturally the 4th turned out to be a “crowd pleaser”. We didn’t even let rain on our parade or unseasonably cool temps ruin our festive moods.

I had too many pix and video to fit in one post, so I created a small montage of some of the highlights from the weekend.

Since you might ask…The song is Song of the Patriot, by Mr. Johnny Cash. It seemed appropriate, especially since they ARE real-life nephews of “Uncle Sam” aka Uncle Kirby, who was born on the 4th of July!!!

PS I know I’m like 2 Days Late on Filling You in on Who Walked Acrossed the Room on the 4th. These Video Blogs Take Some Editing Patience, so Hold Tight. I’ll Give You a Hint…It’s Not Henry or Brooks. They Can Already Run Circles Around Me!

    Is Southern Indiana as crazy with the fireworks as Northern Indiana? This was our 2nd 4th as Hoosiers, and Oh. My. Goodness! The lunatics around here blow a month’s pay on fireworks easily!

    I don’t know if I have ever commented on you blog but have been reading it for a long time.

    I cracked up when Brad said here come Ed and Janet. That is my mom and dad’s names.

    I love your honesty on this blog and I think you quad moms are the ultimate superwomen!!!! I have trouble taking to children two years apart, anywhere!

    I agree Jen you always look great and anytime I stop by your house is so clean. I’m always impressed! Let me know if you want to venture out for ice cream. I’ll help you with the kiddos or we can make a “girls trip.” Either way, I would love to spend some time with you.

    I think the “kiss the rain” picture has to be one of the cutest I’ve ever seen! Love it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome video and tribute to growing up in the good ol’ US of A! I love the quick head snap when that ride came around – maybe in a few years, then you’ll be the one screaming:) Chris

    Looks like the kiddos had a great fourth! This year was so much better than last year-the parade looks like so much fun! Hope ya’ll had fun in Smalltown, USA.

    Hi Brad, Jen and boys! It’s been awhile since I’ve commented, but I’m always reading. I love how your family is like a preview to what my family will experience in a few months! In fact, we’ve taken some of your great ideas and ran with them (choo choo wagon, peapods, etc). Thanks for ALWAYS putting a smile on my face. You guys rock!
    Love from KS,
    Moni
