America's Birthday...Texas Style!

We had a great 4th of July. Everyone that we know here made us feel SO welcome to the State. We started out at the Ward Pancake Breakfast, and then headed out to our friends' families house. They spoiled us all day with a big BBQ lunch, crafts for the kids, endless entertainment and chatting. They even had fireworks and a great dinner planned...that we couldnt stay for because of our napless little Elle! Later in the evening, we let Elle sleep and went to Rudys (a famous bbq place here) and then up to Boerne, TX. It is like 20 minutes away, but is like a little Park City. I cant wait to explore during the day!

What? Oh, are you wondering if Elle participated in a clogging/square dancing show? No, her Mom made her wear it! I made it the day before and somehow didnt realize how silly it was until Rob was completely embarrassed to take her anywhere in it! Oh well!

I think Robbie was in HEAVEN playing with swords with Smith, (a little guy his age) He is used to being surrounded with girlies...so he had SO much fun. He never wanted to leave!

Here was our kid craft...How fun for the kids. I know I had fun making Elle's!

That craft was massive! I love it, and I am sure the kids were loving it too!

chelsea and rob! what a beautiful family you have. I've been hearing about how perfect your kids are from liz for a long time, but it is so fun to see pictures of them! I just had a baby 11 weeks ago, we named her June and I am in love. www.sarahandjamesmcdonald.blogspot.com

Whatever. Elle is always a doll, especially in her twirly skirts. I made one for Hannah last week and am just going to have to buy a sewing machine! Glad you had a great weekend. It looks like you didn't miss a step in the move. Can't wait to see your cute house pics either!

I hope you have a lot of pics of Elle in that outfit- it's the best. Sound like a fun time!


I lover her square dancing outfit! I bet she was a hit! Boys clothes just aren't that much fun.
