We invited everyone (Mom and Dad, Chris and Gabby, Doug and Rachel, Michael) over for dinner. We had s'mores at the firepit afterward. Gabby's first time. I told her that she could now consider herself a true American. Doug and Rachel and their kids, along with Michael, stayed to hang out a little longer. Colin still had some leftover fireworks and sparklers to use up. The kids had a lot of fun with that.
Someone needs to come up with a sparkler that lasts for more than 10 seconds, though.
A very pregnant Rachel took the opportunity to kick back whenever she could.
Micah and Grant are such cute buddies.
Matthew, Rachel and her beach ball.
This is why all the kids love Michael so.
My beautiful niece Theron. I love that girl. She loves to chat and will love you if you do it with her.

Then, of course, Matthew needs to do it.
Michael was giving Colin some tips on focus during sports.
