This year we followed tradition and headed up to the cabin and out of the heat! We had a wonderful time with Justin's family. It has been so long since we've all been together so it was great to be with everyone again (we missed you Krista & Ryan!).
For the actual 4th of July, we headed up to Eager for the annual parade. The kids loved this. They throw candy out after every other float goes by so Gunner was bound and determined to get as much candy as he could. There were a few times when his cousins didn't get any candy so he took some of his own and shared with them. Ah, what a sweet boy we have! He made his Momma proud!
Waiting for the parade to start...
Alisa made these super cute hats for the girls. Isn't she crafty? What cute girls!
Bree kept hers on for about 30 seconds. She's actually signing "all done."
I always get a little choked up when floats like this one goes by. I'm so thankful for the people that have served our country and are currently serving so that we can continue to enjoy our freedom.
The statue of liberty made an appearance too. This float was actually pretty cool.
Miss Breezy was her usual sweet self. She loved the parade. She was content to sit in her stroller with her blankie and watch the floats go by. She clapped her hands & squealed with delight as she'd watch her cousins and brothers run after candy. I'm so lucky to have this girl!
Later that day we had the traditional BBQ with hamburgers, chicken, hot dogs and all the fixins! So yummy!
(And, no, those are not beers, it's IBC root beer! The best ever!)
