Looks like fun! I miss sparklers. They are illegal here until December, so you can bet we'll be goin' sparkler crazy next year!
Is it the heat that has been making it impossible for me to keep up with blogs?
I'm just gonna go with THAT!

Love the pictures - SO CUTE! Too funny though about the last picture with the little guy in his pjs - he looks REAL HOT in that outfit and in that HEAT you guys had that night! LOL Thanks for stopping by to say hello and yes, I agree - thank goodness no surgery but I too HATE to drive for 2 days just to get somewhere - UGH! If I had 10 days or more it wouldn't be so bad probably - but I am not complaining - a vacation is a vacation - right?! LOL xoxoxo
