Independence day!

Aside from Christmas, 4th of July is my favorite holiday! We had such a great weekend! The only pictures I got were at the parade cause I forgot my camera at everything else, I was so mad!
Before the parade we went to our ward breakfast for yummy pancakes, the primary kids got to sing God Bless America for the crowd.This has to be my favorite picture of the parade, I love his hand in his Daddy's pocket!
These next pictures are of what kept my kids so occupied at the parade....was it the horses, the police cars, the noisy band......NO.... it was the tree that we were standing next to because it was COVERED with lady bugs!

After the parade we headed to the street fair and fun music. That evening was spent eating the best BBQ food I think I have ever had with friends and family. The kids got to swim in the pool and play all night, the weather was great. Grandpa Evan taught the kids how to catch lizards with a fishing pole by making a little loop in the fishing line and slipping it over their heads. Connor was in heaven. The fireworks were so awesome this year and all of the kids fell asleep to the sound of Whistling Pete's!
We are so grateful for the people in our lives and for all of the selfless men and women who give their time and sometimes their lives for the freedom of others. Hope you all had a wonderful 4th.

Beautiful and thoughtful blog. The girls' dresses are darling - did you make them? Did Scott count his money after Connor put his hand in Daddy's wallet pocket?
