July 4th holiday this year was so quick since it landed in the middle of the week but it was so packed with so much fun that it was a great little break!!
On the 3rd, we went to an amazing party at one of our friends house! They've done it the past several years, but we've never been able to make it, but we had no plans this year so we headed on over and are we sure glad we did! They had all sorts of things for the kiddos, bounce house water slide, swimming with a lifeguard on hand, babysitters, the hamburger man, bartender, servers, caricature man, sparklers, glow necklaces, etc... I can't remember it all :)
All dressed for the 4th and ready to go to the party
I LOVE this pic of the 3 of them :)
Right in and swimming!
Yummy cake pops
Such a movie star
They loved the sparklers!!
We spent the day up at the pool on the 4th...this is what your kids look like after staying up til 11:00 the night before. Avery's face cracks me up!
Kitty and Rich came over for dinner and to watch fireworks with us and this is what our main menu items looked like. Delicious!!
Trying to get a pic of them together. This was the closest I got before I gave up.
So excited for her ring out of the cupcakes for dessert
My non-sweet tooth in the family...takes after Tim for sure. She's wondering what she's supposed to do with it. I kept telling her to just eat it!
All our glow necklaces and bracelets are ready to go
Before the big fireworks show we had one of our own with these sparklers that we've had for a couple years. These things are CRAZY!!! They shoot out their sparks. It was hilarious!!
Avery staying a safe distance away...where she felt comfortable from the flying balls of fire!
Out by the bridge to watch the fireworks
and, then up on the hill checking out several different shows at once. Happy 4th!!
