A Weekend Full of Merriment

We are back! It was a whirlwind weekend full of activities but it was oh so much fun!
We started off on our journey about 730 am on Saturday morning and it was non stop all the way!
First, we took the kids to Elizabeth's first birthday party. The theme was Beach Party Fun! and the kids played outside in the kiddie pools and in the sprinkler while mom and dad sweated it out( 11 am and it was nearing 100 degrees!), after this we met up with My old school friend, Amanda and her Hubby Nate and their new baby boy, Luke.
Then we met up with Cliffs parents, sister, and her kids for dinner at the Outback which we had not been to in ages. It was Fair Dinkum, Mate! We got a wild hair after dinner and decided to take a trip out on Hwy 7 to the Fireworks Warehouse. We got to take all four of the kids in our car for the trip out there which was so fun! It felt so good to finally have the Pacifica filled up with kids, even if it was just for an hour. Between the three families we loaded up on some pretty awesome fire works and then headed back to Mimi and Papa Carlson's house, at the Redbud Ranch, and set up for a firework show in the back pasture right after dark.
We stayed out until about 1130 watching fireworks and enjoying the show that Papa and Cliff put on for us, then we hit the hay!

We met up with all the Carlson's again for brunch at Cracker Barrel in town and then Cliff, Olivia, and I hit the road for home. Ethan is staying over until Friday, Faith's birthday, and then Mimi and Papa will drive him home.
Here are a few pics of the kids and their cousins- enjoy!
