Thank you to Grandpa John and Grandma Nancy for hosting the party at the beach.  It was the perfect setting for the band of scallywags.  And a big thanks to Grandma Nancy, Britnie, Auntie Gina, Aunt Heidi and Aunt Nikki for bringing yummy (and creative) food.  We love you.

June celebrated with ongoing traditions like:
- coordinated cousin outfits

She also tried out some new ways to celebrate:
- staying up to see the fireworks
- slip 'n slide
- no sun burn!!
- letting mom sleep in the next morning

Thank you Grandpa John and Grandma Nancy for hosting another great party!
