4th of July + Scoop

We spent the 4th on Camp Pendleton with the Davidges.  Not much more patriotic than a Marine base!

These two were quite the site to see.

No, that's not Blake and Mike.  Next year.


I can't get kids to smile, but ask them for a booty shot and they all comply.

There was a 21 gun salute just after the national anthem.  To see everyone stand at attention was pretty amazing.

Except for these two walking, obviously.

This is what most of the day looked like.  Wrestle mania.

Mike worked tirelessly to secure our spot.  That means showing up at 7am.  We were all super comfy!

Headed back to the Davidge house for dinner and fireworks. 


Lots going on.

First, I got an Iphone.  My blackberry had been through hell and so I finally upgraded.  Also bought the LifeProof cover, which is supposed to be waterproof and indestructible.

We'll see about that!

Next, Blake is busy hanging a hammock in the backyard.  Not as easy as it sounds. 

Finally, we're gearing up for Florida!  We fly overnight next weekend.  The beach house we're staying in is darling.  I can't wait.  After some time with the Starnes family, we have a surprise visit with more family.  The kids have no clue!

Off to work on flea control with Finn McMissle.  Nothing works on her.  Poor baby girl.  I'd like to get this taken care of before her birthday party next month.  I mean, fleas at a party?  So embarrassing.

No, Cindy. It's a surprise! Don't tell her. She will be rude to Finn if so.

Your 4th looked like a lot of fun. Loved the body paint on those men. Have fun on your vacation.
