"Where's Natalie?" I asked, as Harry sat with our middle son, Preston in his lap.
Harry shrugged, continuing to watch the game on tv.
"Nat?" I called.
I saw the tip of her light brown hair peep out from behind the counter, "yes?"
I walked towards her, scooping her up, and placing her on the counter. I put some sunscreen in my hand, before smearing it across her face.
Natalie squirmed on the counter, "mommy stop it!"
"I just don't want you to get burnt-"
Just then the doorbell rang, "I've got it!" my oldest son Clay said, before running to the door, followed by our dog Boo.
I heard Niall and Lottie's voice, as they entered the house.
"Mia" Niall said, pulling me into a hug.
"Hey Nialler" I smiled, as his little boy, James ran by, "hey Lottie." she pulled me in for a hug, while holding the hand of her oldest child, Sadie.
Natalie saw James, and hopped off the counter. Niall lived next door, and Natalie and James were best friends.
"Hey" Nicole shouted, entering the house, with Liam and her two kids.
"How did you get in?" I asked, pointing to the locked gate.
"I know where your spare key is" she smirked.
I shook my head, before leaning down to her oldest child, Lauren, "Clay is in his room"
Lauren smiled, before running down the hall.
The doorbell rang again, this time Harry got up to get it.
"Hey guys!" he greeted, giving everyone hugs, before answering the door.
The rest of the gang, and their kids entered. Everyone said hello, before we headed to the backyard for a pool party.
All the kids jumped into the pool, the younger ones in floatys.
I leaned back in the patio chair, "I still can't believe we have all stayed this close for this long, gotten married, and had kids"
Everyone agreed, as Harry flipped the last burger over.
"Okay" Harry said, "time to eat!"
"Natalie" Harry said, placing her down at the picnic table, "you have to stay seated while you eat, sweetie."
Natalie slumped down, taking a bite of her burger.
"Time to eat!" Louis shouted to all the kids. The all climbed out of the pool, grabbing their towels, before running over to the picnic table.
"Burgers!" James exclaimed, taking a seat beside Natalie.
I laughed, watching all the kids dig in and eat.
It was so cute seeing how they all got along.
Once dinner was over, we went to the front yard, where the fire pit was, and roasted marshmallows.
Natalie sat on Harry's lap, as he helped her roast her marshmallow.
"C-A-M-P-F-I-R-E-S-O-N-G Song!" Niall sang, coming out with his guitar.
All the kids laughed, before joining in, "and if you dont think we can sing it faster than your wrong!"
"C-A-M-P-F-I-R-E-S-O-N-G Song!" everyone sang for a few more verses, getting faster each time.
Everyone was laughing by the end, "Spongebob!" James shouted.
Niall nodded, messing up James hair. Lottie pulled James into her lap, helping him roast his marshmallow.
"Any requests?" Niall asked.
"Gotta be you!" I exclaimed, "remember thos days?"
Niall nodded, running his guitar, "I haven't heard that in forever."
"I actually heard one of our old songs on the radio the other day" Zayn added.
"Really?" Louis asked.
Zayn nodded, "it was crazy! I'm pretty sure it was More Than This?"
"What are you talking about?" Lauren asked.
"Well, sweetie" Liam said, "we use to perform to perform on stages.
"Really?" Clay asked.
"Yeah" Niall nodded, "I still remember the adrenalin rush I use to get, first running on to the stage."
"Adrenalin?" Natalie asked, looking up at Harry, "isn't that medicine?"
Harry laughed, "no, sweetie"
"I remember when Simon told us we were going on tour!" Zayn exclaimed.
"It was right after Nicole and Liam's wedding" Louis added.
"Right!" Harry exclaimed.
"Who's Simon?" Caleb asked.
All the boys looked at each other, "let's just say he's your uncle."
"We've got a long night ahead of us" Louis sighed, before leaning back in his chair and smiling.
