The end

Sunday we got together with the Millar extended family for a big dinner then family pictures. Monday morning, the 4th of July we went to the annual Hidden Oaks neighborhood parade and breakfast!
Mac, Drew, Grandpa Millar, Grandpa Dad and Gray waiting in line for their breakfast.

Gray loves his uncle Peter
Drew reunited with friends Steve and Lee
Millarapalooza's grand finale was an obstacle course that involved riding a bike, climbing a play set, putting on and taking off a huge wet t-shirt, eating a cookie, planting a flag, kicking a soccer ball, catching a football, hitting a water balloon with a tennis racket, and slip-n-sliding all the while getting water balloons thrown at you! It got pretty intense!Ben doing a flag dance and showing us how the course works.
It was sad to see the weekend over. As I was packing up, I might have cried. It's always fun getting together with family! Can't wait for the 2012 Millar family Olympics!

Good times!

Swimming and pool games, lets just say I can't remember when I have laughed so hard or had this much fun. Really, I'm pretty easily entertained but this was a whole new level.

Drew came up with Alligator races. It's pretty self-explanatory but I just wish we videotaped it! It was one of the most awkward things I have done and it was hilarious watching it. I took 2
nd over all and I'm pretty proud of it!
Later, we got on the tube, made up more games and ended up ripping the tube, buying a new one, fixing the broken tube and totally destroying it again- I don't think the tube was made for 8 adults jumping and switching seats. The Quote of the Day...

Ben: "Okay, everybody switch seats with the person directly across from you"
Drew: "Wait, I think that will put too much weight in the middle and we'll break it again"
Ben: "I think we're going to have a good time!"

They were both right!
