It was Independence Day

I am a little late in posting but here is a little peek at what our July has looked like so far. 

We decided to stay home for the 4th of July weekend this year. Since the holiday was on Sunday our neighborhood decided to celebrate on Saturday. We started the morning off nice and early for a kid's bike parade and pot luck breakfast. Brady took both the kids with him on the 4 wheeler, since Ellie can't ride a bike yet. The loved every minute of their ride and wished it would have lasted a little longer. We then enjoyed breakfast with the neighbors then went back into the coolness for naps!  

That evening we attended our first Heinekin BBQ, it was so fun. Ellie was a little hesitant in the pool at first, but after eating she dove right in and turned into a little fish, she would jump/slide into one side have Brady shuttle her to the step, only to get out and do it all again. I wish I would have taken some pics, but the camera was left at home. After taking Coop home and putting the exhausted little man to bed we got ready for the firework show. A few of the neighbors set out on one lawn and then set off fireworks together, Ellie loved it!! She even ventured off to hang with her friend Abbie and sit with the big girls. It was a long day but we had a great time and are looking forward to many more 4th of July celebrations with the hood!!
