4th of July

The 4th of July is always a much anticipated holiday in the Searle household. All of Aaron's family comes into town for a family reunion and we always have a blast. Chloe had a great time playing with her cousins and for the first time, wasn't super shy around them. As soon as we got to the Searle's house, Chloe went straight to her cousins and asked them to go downstairs and play, and from then on I hardly saw her. That would have been a nice break for me, but Abby wouldn't let me set her down for a second the whole day. Oh well!
I was in charge of the games this year and we started off with a game of kickball with a little water twist. Each of the bases had a different water feature that you had to go through, and in order to get home you had to slide on a slip-n-slide. We played that for a while and then of course, a huge water fight broke out and then the fun really began!
Chloe had hurt her knee earlier on in the day and refused to walk on it, but we were able to get her to kick the ball once.
The rest of the day, Chloe had Elissa carry her around! Thanks again!
I had a bunch of Minute to Win it games planned, but the weather had other plans for us. It started to rain right as we started the games. We tried to move them inside but it was just too crazy. We did get a chance for Aaron to play Junk in the Trunk before we called it quit though and we got quite the show!

But through it all we had a great time and can't wait until next year to do it all over again.!
