So. We are celebrating July 4th today. With a mid-week, single-day holiday, we didn't make it out of town. But, we enjoyed our neighborhood parade, and cooled off with friends in their pool. Now, Olive is napping, and we're checking a few things off of our to-do lists before grilling for dinner. (What is July 4th without a cook-out?!)
A firetruck led the neighborhood parade. (Yeah, we were a few minutes delayed. So we pulled into a cul-de-sac, and joined the parade after the truck went by.)
This year we opted for bikes over Olive's stroller. We decorated, but only a little bit :)
After the parade, Ava, Olive, and Olivia enjoyed a rest in the shade before joining the bounce house, playground, and water squirting fun.
