Happy Fourth 2012!

We had a really fun 4th of July this year, as usual.  It's beginning to be one of my favorite holidays. Russell and I started off the day by making a ton of apricot jam with apricots we got from a friend's tree. In the afternoon we went swimming and had a barbecue at Aunt Vickie's house and then headed to Aunt Lynne and Uncle Max's house for a parade, homemade ice cream, sparklers and, of course, fireworks!
The kids got together and had a very small parade (mostly just them running/riding around in circles with flags and streamers) but it was really cute.  This is a shot of most of the kids, but not all.

The kids had fun playing with sparklers while waiting for the show
Morgan was a little nervous
Lydia was very interested
