We had a great 4th of July. Getting a four day weekend definitely didn't hurt. We decided last minute to head to the parade on Saturday. We found great parking and got there early enough to do lots of the kids activities at NewBo before the parade which worked out perfectly.
It was a lot of fun watching the kids do the challenge. Tatum was able to do it all by herself with the exception of spraying the hose.
Carrying extra hose "up a ladder"
Some of our family was looking quite patriotic on Sunday so I had to get a picture.
Late that afternoon we met my dad at Lake MacBride to take out his kayak. Clouds moved in and kept things pretty comfortable but it never rained, it was perfect.
Declan tried to climb out of the boat without any help. I'm not sure where Brennan was but by the time I got over to him to help he had pushed the boat quite far from the dock and his body was stretched out between. He fell in before I could do much to help. He was screaming and quite unhappy about it even though he had his floaty on and didn't go under. It gave the rest of us a good laugh but he was mad. Of course he decided he loved being in the water about the time we were ready to leave. So then he got to be mad again when we said we had to go.
Our attempts at 4th of July pictures. Weak. haha
