Fourth Fun!

We had a fun and busy weekend.

First off, it was great that 4th landed on a Saturday because that meant daddy was home with us on Friday.

We had a nice Friday. Went to the mall for some lunch, carousel riding and a little window shopping. That evening we headed out to hang out with friends, listen to some music and watch fireworks. It wasn't terribly hot and listen to Beatles and Cher impersonators was fun while waiting for the fireworks to start. Best part was the fireworks were about 2 miles from our house so we were home and in bed in no time.

Saturday morning we woke up and headed to the local parade with friends. We found a nice shady spot under a tree and enjoyed the nice short 20 minute parade (perfect amount of time for a toddler and preschooler).
We headed home for a quick nap, then headed to some friends house a little north of us in the country. It was heaven! They rented a huge inflatable water slide and a mechanical bull! SO FUN! And wow are my girls fearless. Here is a video of the girls with Adam. After this I was even able to send Emma down by herself! She loved it!!

They also have this amazing pool and spa so we basically followed the girls back and forth between the slide and pool. We left around 8 b/c we had planned to watch fireworks again but on the way home Grace was asking to go to bed. So we headed home instead and enjoyed a little quiet.

Sunday we went to church and then headed to my parents house to enjoy a little more pool time and some yummy brisket. yum :)

So how was your fourth??
