We had a super fun 4th this year. My favorite holiday rarely disappoints, but this year we had a fabulous group of friends to celebrate with, and that just made it all the better. :)
|Me, LeAnn Mills, Lacey Nef, Katie Taylor (+James), Sharlie Zinniger. Friends for life!|
Now, personally, I love parades! The candy, the excitement, the marching bands...Walt's not sold on them though. He doesn't love the crowds.
And Zuzu spent most of it like this:
But we still had a lot of fun. :)
Next we headed with our friends over to a BBQ. This was by far Walt's favorite part of the day, because of this:
He-LO, giant water slide! My friends are awesome. :)
We also ate a lot of really good food and just generally caused a ruckus.
We snuck out of the BBQ a bit early because, as I explained to my friends, I NEED a big fireworks show in my life...but since it was cold and a bit rainy, we decided it may not be super responsible to take a newborn and sit outside for hours. So we opted for the "drive in" experience.
Best. Idea. Ever.
We brought popcorn, pillows and blankets, parked up above the lake, and had a great time! My phone died, so I don't have any good pictures, but it was awesome.
Happy 4th of July!!!
