As many of you know, my two sister in laws and their families come to visit every summer for a month or so. My two boys can't wait every year for their six cousins to come. The first family arrived in late June. The weather was still not so great but our first stop was at the beach to get an ice cream from our local ice cream man, Papa Joe.
Once the weather got better, we were able to do a little boating and kayaking. Above are my two boys and their cousins.
My son in the back and with his cousin taking a little ride.
This is my husband and my neice out for a ride.
My son in orange and his cousin that is the same age (they are a week apart and best friends)
The Fourth of July is a huge day in our town. This is part of our huge crew of friends and family watching the parade.
Both of my boys and my husband rode their bikes to the parade from our house, a good 10 miles plus. Needless to say, my younger son was a little hot and tired.
Fourth of July spirit!!!

Thanks for visiting ....
