Fourth of July Recap

We woke up early (for me anyway!) and went to see the 4th of July Parade in a neighborhood. After slathering on plenty of sunscreen we hunkered down on on some prime real estate.

 


 Hubby went and got all of us some water ice to cool off. It was really hot and humid and we were on the sunny side of the street. Lemon water ice on a hot humid day=yum!






Finally we heard the parade coming down the street! It was full of marching bands and floats...


I felt a little bit silly but started to cry when I saw how proud these gentlemen were to be carrying our flag with such honor.


My girls were waving their flags and so excited.









One of the clowns came over to show the girls her giant shoes. They wanted to know if her feet were really that big.





After the parade we made our way home to relax and for a while. The girls and I made some delicious lemon cupcakes with lemon coconut frosting and red white and blue sprinkles. After a dinner of hamburgers, potato salad and watermelon we went to see fireworks. By the time we all got home and showered and in bed it was so late. It was a great day!
