4th of July Fun

4th of July Fun

Goodness did we have a super fun holiday!

We kicked it off on the 3rd with a birthday for our cousin Caitlyn! I LOVE that she wants to be here with us for her birthday. This is somehow the only photo I took that evening…of Remi eating the cake.

After dinner, we went to see fireworks. It’s a tradition for Cait on her birthday! It was BUSY because the only fireworks in the area were at a town about 30 minutes from home….and EVERYONE was there. My aunt had some car trouble that threw a wrench into the plans, but we still watched the big show and it was fun.

Remi was a little nervous, but ended up doing great, not even needing me to hold her. She sat by her KK most of the night!

On the 4th, we headed to the square in the morning to get some fun family time before Tyler had to go to work!

Remi wanted to bring her bike, and (even though I was nervous she was going to run into someone!) she had a great time peddling around. Our small town celebration is a great time to ride your little bike around.

She got plenty of play time on the bouncy houses (even though she was afraid of the ones with water).

And we loved getting some family time together. If you’re not dressing crazy patriotic for the 4th, are you even American? ha!

We cooled off with snowcones- off course blue for this one!

She LOVED seeing her blue tongue in my camera. 🙂

After a good nap, we hit up Mimi’s house for swimming and lunch!  We were there with our family and some friends (my friend Rachel’s crew came to swim, too!). SO MUCH FUN.

We got ready that evening (and got some Nene snuggles) and then headed back to the square.

My favorite 4th of July tradition is the HUGE block party that happens on our town square. Live music- so many friends. It’s HOT (see everyone sweating like crazy?) but it’s SO fun.

We dance, we eat dinner from the food trucks, we get snow cones and watch fireworks.

We LOVED dancing with our friends Tara and Amelia…

And we also partied with my sweet friend Brandy and her son.

Tyler had to work, but we were so grateful to meet up with Tara and her family- and sweet Heath played with Remi just like a daddy would have. So thankful for friends who are more like family.

More blue snow cones!

And then fireworks!  Remi wasn’t too interested (it was her third fireworks in like 4 nights)….but we enjoyed being all together!
