The kids come home today

The whole group will be pulling into our house around 4:00-4:30 today. There are 11 total. 9 adults and my 2 kids. They were in Hershey, PA last night and went to Hershey's Choc. World. On their way back to the hotel they watched some fireworks going off in the distance and just headed back to the hotel. Everyone was too tired to stay up and watch the whole fireworks show. I spoke with my mom this morning at 9:30am and she said that Jordan was already back asleep in the van. My kids will be exhausted, but I can't wait to see their excitement as they begin to tell us about all they did. We are prepared to stick their photo card in right away and look at pictures - Zach said that he has taken around 300 pics and Jord around 200. I know what we'll be doing all evening! First thing Rach said this morning is, "Jordy's coming home today!"

I have to put together food for the van of travelers coming today, so I will be cleaning and baking today. Tomorrow evening our court is having a 4th of July party so I also have to start preparing for that as well. The kids are meeting early to decorate their bikes, wagons, scooters, and power wheels for a mini-parade and then we will start grilling. Volleyball games, sack races and a water balloon toss should make for a fun evening.
