Happy 4th of July

What a fun weekend! Saturday we had a neighborhood parade that was led by a firetruck! The parade started so quickly I didn't even take any photos of all the kids following behind the truck. Take my word for it - it was cute.

The parade led us to a BBQ feast and pool party.

Where Gavin took his first unassisted jump off the diving board without his swim vest or dad catching him! He just learned to swim in swim lessons 3 weeks ago, I'm really impressed with his progress.

Sunday we went to church and spent some time hanging out with Nana & Papaw, we even snuck in a nap. Then Monday morning we went to the community parade on the square. Watching the bands, trucks, motorcycles, princesses (beauty queens) and other groups was super enjoyable, hot, but fun.
 I made Camille's tutu last year altering the instructions I found here. It is so full and festive, she wore it all weekend.

Having fun running around the maze of bushes after the parade.

We had turkey burgers on the grill with all the fixins which should have been followed by fireworks but due to the rain we thought it wouldn't happen so we stayed home to do our own sparklers - though come to find out they did do the fireworks they just did them early.

 fun with sparklers, that were given to the kids by a good friend!

Our own little firecracker!

Happy Birthday America!

  1. Great 4th of July pics!! I was so bummed Indian Hills cancelled their fireworks. I think it was the first time since we moved here in '98 that they have not gone on.
