My Sarah Is A Teenager

Yes, my niece is officially a teenager.
I am VERY proud to be her "Tia" and am enjoying having her in my life! She is a pure joy! We have definately had our ups and downs, but I wouldn't do any of it over again!
Her mom had a party for her with her friends and of course family. We had nummy food, a great time, and of course CAKE! Here are some pics...

3rd & 4th of July Celebration 2007

One thing I have learned about capturing night time activities, is, it is stinken HARD!
Anyways, we hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! Jose and I took FULL advantage of this being a 'day off'.
He went out back and finished our little wall that he built and I cleaned the kitchen and carpets. Then we went swimming and bbq'd.
It was a very nice day w/ our kids, and we enjoyed every moment!
We later went to my old work and parked in the parking lot and took pics and waited for fireworks. When they finally came, they were HUGE AND LOUD!!!! Dominic freaked because we were so close, but then got used to it and enjoyed it. Beaumont put on a really good show! Here are some pics...

Here is Jose bbq'ing some food for us. Jose & Dominic swimming in the pool

Then Tuesday night, the 3rd, Cabazon had a firework show also. So after dinner and cleaning, we headed out there, got a really good spot and watched those.
