Fourth of July Fun!

For our fourth of July we were blessed to have the most beautiful weather. The days leading up to it were soooo hot and the actual day was overcast and 70 degrees. We decided to take advantage and go take the kids to the park. We went to get Arby's and sandwiches so that we could have a picnic. Right after we got done eating the kids ran off to play and ten minutes later it started raining. Go figure... but we still let them play for a bit and then took them home for naps. After naps we went to a family BBQ at my parents. We got dressed in our Red, White, and Blue and headed over! We had so much fun! Amber brought a snow cone maker and homemade ice cream, I brought fruit pizza, my parents did the BBQ, Grandma brought her yummy potato salad and eggs, and my mom made her homemade ice cream. The food was delish to say the least. We had relay races where we tied our legs together, used spoons while trying to balance an egg on them, and had an egg toss! My mom is always so much fun with the grandkids. She is the best Grandma there is and always makes each kid feel so welcome and special. Our kids jumped in the pool and had fun swimming with dad and their cousins. It was so fun celebrating this special day. We are so grateful for the freedoms we enjoy and for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for us. We loved spending time with family and the kids had a blast!
