Another holiday weekend done right. A BBQ, a picnic, a gathering with friends, a play date, a bike parade, fireworks, the splash pad… Happy Birthday, America- we celebrated the heck out of you!
Carrying on the new/old tradition, we had the requisite July 4th picnic (held on July 6th). This one included three generations of picnickers. We’ve been family friends since preschool and elementary school. Almost 33 years of friendship and now our kids are friends. Not many people can claim those kind of relationships- we’re pretty lucky.
And Finn beat Grandpa at arm wrestling, so he was feeling pretty lucky too…
Of course, the actual 4th included sparklers and fireworks, a sprinkler, BBQ, cute babies and 2/$5 flag t-shirts- does it get more American? (Note Max’s tank top and a lady on both arms…)
We also got to spend time with some of Drew’s junior high friends (it’s not preschool, but 20+ years of friendship isn’t too shabby either) and their adorable kids.
Finn had a play date with one of his school best buds…
Reenacted his school bike parade (several times)…
And did a little star gazing… (surprisingly we didn’t see any)!
Maybe we could just have a three day weekend every week? Seriously… we promise to do it right!
Happy Fourth of July!
