Happy Independence Day!

We kicked off the day with our annual neighborhood parade (decorations provided by GG). Last year the kids were just babies and I was pregnant with Holden. This year the kids are now toddlers and Holden made the caboose to our train. Lily was able to wear her 4th of July dress one more time.

The big kids enjoyed the post parade festivities. Here is Evan fishing for treasure with Dad.

Will with a big grin.

And taking juice break on a cool old radio flyer tricycle. Lily participated in the bean bag toss and made her first throw through the target a few feet away!

Holden got some cuddling from our neighbor Melanie.

In the afternoon Will and Evan headed to Grammy and Papa's house for their first sleep over.

While my mom, David, Lily, Holden and I went to our friend's Ranch for the day.

Lily spend most of the day swiming and exploring. David taught her how to blow bubbles under water.

My mom spent some quality time with her dear friend Sandy.

We enjoyed some delicious barbeque at dusk. One the way home we passed through several small towns and caught bits of their firework displays on the horizon. Driving past downtown Austin we had a great view of our fireworks and even caught the last 10 minutes from the bleachers in our own park.
