Every 4th of July, we attend a cookout at (now, follow this) Brian's Best Friend's Parents' House. They are practically his family and have known Brian since he was a little boy. They just recently got an above ground pool, so that's what we took advantage of the most!
The whole family, including Thad, got into the action of some badminton.
The pictures of the fireworks are on my other camera, so they'll be posted shortly :)
