4th of July

We had a great 4th of July!
Both of our families were together which makes things so much fun.
Btw...I am so thankfully that our families get along so well. I don't know many families that spend this much time together. It's wonderful and so special.
We went over to Kellen's parents house and cooked out.
There was a pool and slide for the kids and they loooove it.
Michael, Jackson and Lorelei were able to be there. Wish Julie could have come.
Got some great family pictures. The last time me and my bother took a picture together by ourselves was my freshman year of college. (wow)

Favorite words is Elmo.
Ask for her bow when she wakes up in the morning.

Talks for Maddux. I will ask Maddux a question and she will answer...another reason I think Maddux doesn't feel the need to talk in English!

Avery and Maddux have now attended their first movie. Sherk, The Final Chapter.
They did really well. We went to Northpark and at first we were the only ones. 10 minutes after the movie started another big family came in but they were letting their kids walk around a little so it ended up being ok!
They actually watched about 45 minutes of the movie in our laps. Our row dead-ended into a wall so we let them explore our row which was a lifesaver.
There was about 10 left in the movie and they were done. Finally we let them run around so Kellen and I could finish the movie!
Now the pictures:
Kellen, Avery and Maddux
Mommy, Avery and Maddux
Them watching the movie!
