The Fifth of July

Every summer, our friends, Tracy and Gary, host a 4th of July picnic.  It's never on the 4th, but that's okay, because that means they can attend our picnic on the 4th and we can go to their picnic! Double the fun!

This year, it was held on July 5th, and we were happy to extend the 4th of July celebration!

The picnic started with some playtime outside.

Lily had so much fun that it resulted in broken flip flops.  Broken, as in split into 2-3 pieces each!!!

 There were so many fireworks that the first round started early!

There was a funny incident involving Liam knocking down Lexie's chair!

The fireworks lured Lily to sleep.

After the fireworks ended, I moved sleeping Lily into the house, put Liam in his pajamas, and helped Tracy clean up her house.

Celebrating the 4th of July two days in a row was so much fun!

Liam was a big fan of his first 4th of July!

  2. One of my most favorite things is kids dressed up in red, white, and blue. I love all of these patriotic pictures. I love the picture of Lexie and Liam after the chair tanked. How cute is that!
