LOVE this movie! If you havn't seen it, you should!

My Fourth of July was super busy! My BF's family always does a big picnic/bbq for the holiday and this year it was up to my bf and one of his sister's to get all the plans made and carried out. I had a full day of helping with prep work Friday night - including putting on two full sets of nails for a couple of his family members. We didn't get home until 1:30 in the morning and then we were up at 5:30 the next morning. Ricco had to set about getting the cooking started, he had several slabs of ribs to smoke, not to mention all the burgers and chicken he had to cook after the ribs smoked.

There was lots for the little ones to do since we did this at the park - and all were smiles

Check the side eye my son was giving Jordan during his!

The smiles didn't last long though - my son flipped out of a swing and used his face to land with, lol! I was actually pretty worried when it first happened, his little mouth was full of blood and I couldn't tell if he knocked any teeth out. Luckily he didn't, but he did have a big fat lip and scratched up face for the next two days.
Ahhhh, nothing like a nice cold Coors light after a day of sweating it out at the park!

(two smiley's to go with his "one thumb up and one thumb down" comment because this is sad, but funny too!)

Ah what's a family gathering without a little bloodshed? Glad he's ok. I miss being a part of a big family. The family I married into is tiny and my family is 6 hours away.

Looks like a busy and very fun time! And awww, that poor guy, he looks so distraught - you're the family paparazzi too! I do that, take pictures of everything. Haha!

Poor Little, I'm so sorry he fell out of the swing. I hope he got lots fo kisses from everyone. Especially Mama. I miss the family gatherings also. Looks like you had a fabulous time. I was always the photograper also. I guess you are exhausted! Food looks delicious.
