4th of July

The day was spent on the go from breakfast on to way past bedtime. It was such a fun filled day! We started with a brunch over at our good friends the Powells (our wonderful neighbors who live behind us). This has become a tradition and we always have such a great time. From there we spent the day at a block party. The kids had such a blast playing on the bounce house, riding in abike parade, playing water games, getting rides on the quad, and eating lots of snow cones. After a bbq dinner at our house we headed to Memorial Park for some fantastic fireworks with friends and family! We were all exhausted by the end of the evening but can't wait to do it all again next year.
