Fourth of July Weekend

We had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! It was packed full of laughter and family-time. I am so thankful that we live in the greatest country in the world!

We enjoyed our first watermelon of the summer.....

except Daniel.... He did not like watermelon!

We were so happy to get to spend some time with this cute "little firecracker"...

The kids had the best time playing with cousin Banks!

After church Sunday we snapped a few family pictures.

This was a first for us. We actually bought the kids sparklers. They were a little scared of them at first but then loved them!
Daniel kept trying to blow his out!

Monday morning we headed downtown for a walking parade. The community was invited to decorate wagons and strollers and come in their patriotic clothes. We traveled around the block then had a ice cream party at Suzannah's Photography.

They awarded a few prizes and we were surprised when Georgie won "Best Patriotic Dressed". Suzy said her red boots sealed the deal!
Georgie (Best Dressed), Beth Dunn (Best Vehicle) and Chloe the dog (Honorable Mention for Best Dressed)

Then we headed to the lake to visit Michael's grandparents. The kids always have fun swimming...

Then the boys enjoyed a few games of flag football. I love the fact that Michael's grandaddy can still run and throw just as good as him and his cousin Larry!
