+ 24th party picture overload…

Despite the rain and wind, my family’s 24th party was ROCKIN’! Firework watching and lighting, dessert eating, swimming, tramp jumping, lounging, and chatting all happening. It was so dang awesome! Thanks Kathy, Craig, and Sarah….and others!

The lovely ladies….the awesome one in the pink posing is my EXACT age and has the EXACT same name as me and she is my sister-in-law. So, that is why I’m called “liz-in-law”. And I actually love the nickname too.
Sweet baby Dexter…soon to be Beck’s best friend and a heartbreaker.
Got to love Sarah in her to die for swimming suit.
Just call me squinty eye.
The handsome boys.
Beck and Packer dead asleep while the fireworks are still happening, when they crash, they crash hard.
