We played with and kissed our cousins:
We played some hockey:
We took some patriotic family pictures. The great-grandkids:
Liz, Kirk & Logan:
Sarah, Jason, and Jacob:
Aunt Sandy, Uncle Kirk and Jacob:

Then it was off to Columbia Mall for the fireworks. All those rows in the mall parking lot...we could have turned down any one of them. But the one we happened down happened to be the same one that our good friends Larry and Lauren were parked in with their kids! Emily, Larry, and baby Nolan:
It was so good to see them! Emily, Ryan, and Wesley:

As we waited in traffic, Katy commented, "If Scott were here he'd pull out the football."
