After the bike parade, we headed to wild waves as a family for the afternoon. We had a great time depsite losing all my pictures when I was transferring them to my PC.
We hosted a 4th of July BBQ at our home. My friend, Jen, came to the rescue and let me borrow a few things and helped me set up in the back yard the day before. So all we had to do was put the food out! With 4 families attending, we had some great BBQ and delicious desserts!!
We piled into the street in front of our house for fireworks and fun. The parachute guys are always a big hit!
As are the smoke bombs.
And finger snaps.
We lit dozens of sparklers.
And borrowed a firepit to roast smores (because we hadn't had quite enough dessert at that point).
We lit some fountains and bigger fireworks too and finally these lanterns which the kids love watching float off into the sky.
It was a jam-packed day, but it was filled with fun and friends! Grateful to God and our country for all we have been blessed with!
