4th of July evening with friends

We spent the evening of the 4th at the Hatch's house.  We sure are glad they are our friends.  They are such great people and we have so much fun whenever we get together with them.  They invited us over for a BBQ.  The kids played outside the entire time we were there.  Us adults talked the entire time we were there.  Doug made delicious gourmet hamburgers with caramelized onions and a special sauce.  Yum.  I wanted to eat two, but I was so full I couldn't.  :)

Thanks guys!  It was a always!

I had Laurel snap a quick picture of our family all together before the kids ran off and started playing.

Riley and Charlotte were buddies.  

Seriously, what great memories in their backyard.

Riley with her star glasses and bubbles.

Eating.  I think the kids ate mostly chips. 

All the kids (minus Clara)  They all have blue mouths because they just ate cupcakes with blue frosting. 

Riley and Charlotte passing the huge ball back and forth.  Riley would roll it to Charlotte, and Charlotte would let it hit her and then fall over.  It was cute.

Laurel and I.  I'm so glad for her friendship.

Zac and Andrew.

Sadie and Jake showing off their patriotic glasses and tattoos.  Jake called himself Patriotic Man.

Emery and Ella.

Riley and Charlotte.

They also got a cat!  That was exciting to meet her.  Emery loved the cat the most.  I mean...look how cute they are together.  Too bad Sadie is really allergic to most cats we come across...I might just be convinced to get one looking at these pictures!  :)

We had to leave the Hatch's house around 7 to get home in time for Rob to pick up the flags in the neighborhood with the Young Men in the ward.  Then we just bounced on the trampoline and watched fireworks until way too late.  Riley and Emery and I ended up watching them from inside again because there were just so many huge fireworks from the neighbors that made them nervous.  And they were so loud.  All in all it was a great 4th of July!

I'm so glad I checked your blog and saw this post! We love your family too, and I totally treasure our friendship. I didn't realize Sadie was allergic to cats! Hopefully it's fine if she doesn't go near Fluffy. (Is it?) That family pic is amazing, too. I really like it!
