The 4th of July

I just love the 4th of July! Every year it seems that we manage to do something fun, and this year was no exeption! We started our day at the 4th on Broadway parade. We took all of the boys, ours and the Curry boys, last year and had a BLAST, so we weren't going to miss it this year! We got there bright and early and met up with the Curry's. We were right by the fountain and it was all we could do to keep the boys out of the water :) Once the parade started, the boys watched all the floats, tractors, fire trucks and everything in between pass by. They had lots of fun and enjoyed getting little favors and giving people high-fives. Chris got them some flags and I just loved watching them proudly wave them as everyone went by. Bowen even got a flag :) He slept soundly through about half of the parade, then got hungry, so we missed the rest of the parade. It was pretty hot by the time it was over, so we all headed home for some yummy lunch with the Curry's!
After lunch, Bowen, Crockett and I headed to LuLu and Papaw's house. Crockett was excited to play in the water and hang out with LuLu and Papaw. Mom helped me make my 1st batch of homemade butterfinger ice cream, which was DELICIOUS! Les cooked burgers on the grill and mom made her delicious potato salad. It was such a yummy dinner and exactly what I wanted on the 4th of July! I was a little bummed we didn't see any fireworks, and I didn't really even get to watch them on tv this year. Maybe next year when we don't have a newborn :) It was such a wonderful 4th of July spent with so many people we love!
