This year for the 4th of July, we decided (rather spontaneously) to go to Lubbock and hang out with the Curry's. We all met for lunch at Fuzzy's and then took the boys to nap while we got ready for cookin' out!! We cooked quite a feast, consisting of hamburgers, hot dogs, jalapeno poppers, broccoli and cauliflour salad (YUM!), baked beans and brownie with cream cheese and berries for dessert! WOW! LuLu and Papaw came and the Curry's invited their neighbors too, who brought homemade ice cream... SO MUCH DELICIOUS FOOD!!! It was a beautiful evening and we all really enjoyed being together! All three boys just ran circles around the backyard and pretty much wore each other out. Poor baby Quin had his first taste of strawberries... and immediately broke out into a rash with hives :( No more strawberries for baby Quin!
On the morning of the 4th, we all got up and headed to the 4th on Broadway parade. We watched it from the Tech campus... one of my most favorite places in Lubbock. It was a gorgeous morning, cloudy with some sprinkles. It was a great parade. I loved watching the boys, all in their red, white and blue, waving their flags and clapping their hands. So proud to be an AMERICAN! We saw lots of tractors, horses, weinie dogs, bands... the kiddos thought they were all pretty cool! Crockett's favorite was, of course, the TAC-TERs!!!!!
We were all pretty exhausted after the parade, but not the boys! They decided to strip down in the backyard and jump on the trampoline :) We put the sprinkler underneath the trampoline and they had a blast! It was a pretty funny sight! Johnny is so good to play with the littler boys and he definitely keeps them entertained. After a LLLOOONNNGGG nap, we headed home! Crockett didn't want to go, but he never wants to leave DD's hooouuusssse :) It was a wonderful 4th of July! I don't think we even missed the firework toooooo much!
