Wordless Wednesday #9

Happy Fourth of July!
Overall, I feel that I've been really good about keeping my Wordless Wednesdays wordless.  However, I've decided that this week's pictures could use captions, so here we go!

Our old 4th of July tradition- the crew having pizza and watching fireworks at the park in Red Wing, MN.  Back row: Bro-in-law (Chad), Mom (Sue), Dad (Brad).  Second Row:  Sister (Kris), Dog (Libby), Sister (Haley), Ryan, Me.  Front row: Nephew (Wiley), Niece (Autumn).

Autumn and her sparkler.

Our dog, Emmy, and I watching fireworks and enjoying her first 4th of July.  She is 3 months old here.

Ryan and I at our 4th of July/housewarming party in 2008. 

The 4th of July party became an annual tradition!  Here's some of the family.

At our 2009 4th party we announced that we were pregnant!

My Grandma Jan and Wiley playing some bean bags.

And here we are in 2010 at our party!  Notice the little red socks from 2 pictures ago!

Here are the cousins on Dad's side: Brennan, Evan, and Claire.

Ryan is the GRILL MASTER!

My Dad was having some sparkler fun.

A bunch of friends and family doing sparklers.

Our little family watching fireworks by the lake.  Brennan liked his first fireworks!
