We had a 4th of July party

We had a 4th of July party.  I'm sure this is not shocking news, as we'll probably continue doing this as long as we live in this house with a pool. 

So, I wasn't really planning on taking lots of pictures or blogging any, but then, you know, I got snap happy.  I turned them into a slideshow and set the whole thing to music because it was actually far easier than pasting a bunch of photos here.

The party was super fun.  But let me tell you, setting it to "Magic in the Air" also makes it look about 10x funner.  (If you don't believe me, try taking pictures of your boring day at work, yourself taking out the trash, or maybe doing laundry, and then set it to "Magic in the Air", and voila!  Super fun day.)  The song, an unofficial anthem of the World Cup 2014, is a summer favorite in our family and is particularly fitting since we rigged up an outdoor TV during the party to put on the Brazil-Colombia match.  Gotta keep our Brazilian-American/American-Brazilian friends happy!

From my perspective, the biggest improvement on our party vs. last year's was that, well, we hadn't just moved in 3 weeks earlier with a one year old, a three year old, and a five year old, and a truckload full of boxes that as of the 4th of July seemed to have exploded all over the house.  Yea progress!
