Fourth Family Fun

Yesterday we celebrated the Fourth of July at my Great-Great Aunt Miriam's house in Arlington. There sure were a lot of people there... and they all seemed to know who I was! They all know me as Thatcher, not Boogie, though. A lot of us decided to go swimming. When I say "a lot" I mean, A LOT. Just look how many of us are in the pool at once!
Cousins and Mommies
Travis (and Sharon, married to Sam), Dane (and Whitney), Me (and Mommy), Ashtyn (and AL)
Ashtyn loved the ring float
She did share with me, though.I ended up being a lot more interested in the beach balls, though.
I'm getting better in the water, and can't wait to start lessons on Monday.
I love to SPLASH! SPLASH! SPLASH! I even went off the diving board, but we didn't get a picture of it. What a shame.
Dane and I took Gracie's Barbie Jeep out for a spin.
... and of course, Ashtyn wanted to join in the fun.
She discovered a sit and spin.I call it STAND and spin. (or stand and fall down.)It wouldn't be a family gathering without Dominoes...... and Naps...... and Daddies...... and me, loving a puppy. (Odie didn't like me too much. Uncle held him so I could pet him, though.)Well... I hope everyone had as great of a celebration as I did. Thank you Jesus for allowing us to live in a free country where we can honor you.

The photo I loved most was the two kids in the car! One of them on the mobile phone. How classic!
