I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July, and I cannot believe it is already July where has this year gone?
Serena took a nice camping vacation with the neighbor girls and their family for 5 days so she wasn’t with us on the 4th but I’m sure she had an amazing time out on the boat all day for the 4th along with lots of fireworks and of course 5 days away from her brothers 😉
We also had my niece over for the night of the 4th so she was able to enjoy the day with us and then we had a nice cookout with my sister and brother in law the next day to pick her up.
For our 4th Of July meal we had some delicious hamburgers on the grill from local grass fed cows, a fresh salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, hard boiled eggs, a red/blue fruit salad, and organic banana muffins. The kids enjoyed a water balloon fight, and lots of fun fire works both before and after it got dark.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day.
The Water balloon fight!!
Just as an FYI Dustin and Cody were left in charge of getting the water balloons filled while me and Jake got dinner ready for everyone, well they not only filled the water balloons but also threw about 150 of them, so not only did everyone else not get very many water balloons they also didn’t get to join in on the family water fight.
The kids ready for the BIG night time fireworks.
The older boys ready for night time fireworks to start.
We couldn’t have asked for a better day, all the kids had so much fun, and ended up staying up very late!!
What did your family do special for the 4th Of July?
I am linking up with these great linky parties.
