Our Trip to Bar 10 Ranch

Tisha and I had a blast in Las Vegas. Well that's not completely true. We actually spent very little time in Vegas at all. It was the surrounding areas we had all our fun in. Here are a few pictures of our adventure to Bar 10 Ranch. I'll write more about it in a few days.

Ian's Birthday Party

The West's, the O'Donnell's, and Michael (one of our neighbors also known as our 4th child) got together to celebrate Ian's birthday this past week. Here are some pictures of the fun and festivities:

Happy birthday Ian!

Fun on the 4th of July

The O'Donnell Clan had a blast at the lake this 4th of July weekend! We had fun fishing, swimming, and watching fireworks at Grandpa Eddie and Grandma Mickey's lake house. This is one of our favorite holidays!

Besides the fishing and the swimming, the real fun starts when we get together with some of the neighbors and head out for the fireworks show. This is put on by a local business owner, and it's turned into quite the event. They shoot off thousands of dollars of fireworks and the show lasts about 25 minutes. They shoot them off literally one after the other and lead up to a grand finally at the end. Personally, I'd say this show rivals any I've ever seen with the exception of Disney. You will see some pictures of this toward the end of the slide show, but it doesn't do the show justice.

Thanks, as always, to the Moore's for their generosity! Every year they feed us and take us out on their pontoon boat for this event. They have created some wonderful memories for my family!

The two songs included in this slide show are from the Shrek movie soundtrack. To see a complete list of the songs on this album, or to purchase a copy, click here.
