Post-holiday fatigue has set in. I am canceling potluck – and here is a picture. Nevermind, I thought I could post just one picture. But I am incapable of it. So here is a bunch of pictures… Boys against Fort Worth TX skyline We started the celebration off with a visit to my in-laws who took us to a party overlooking the Fort Worth skyline.   In the picture above, I requested that the boys smile. Holly and the boys Blog-Stedman had to work the evening of the fourth, so it was nice to have the grandparental help with the boys which included photography. Fort Worth skyline without fireworks My camera has a firework setting.   Each year I set it.   Each year I get REALLY CRAPPY FIREWORK pictures.   So, here is a picture of the Fort Worth skyline and you can insert your own fireworks into it.   Believe me, they will look much better. On Sunday, we went to my parents to play in the lake.   The cousins were present. kids in intertubes in lake I got back on a water ski after a mere 15 year hiatus.   It was not pretty.   Luckily I have no photos. All in all a fabulous way to celebrate the most amazing country in the WORLD.   Oh ya! And here is the best photo from the day… Fourth of July boys and Holly Best because I was able to crop out my mom’s fingers, Ryan is not grabbing Reid by the neck (as in a previous shot to this one), all boys are accounted for and 1/4 people are looking at the camera. YEAH.

  5. Sounds like you guys had fun! Yes, it’s so hard getting good family shots. I have given up trying for the posed shots. Now I actually like my action ones:-)
