Love this one! Zoë has the greatest, tightest hugs!
Zoë would sit for a picture but she refused to stand; so my ugly porch it is, ha ha! At least he beauties distract from it. Had their tops custom made at Mighty Sweet Designs.
Mmm... chocolate pie for dessert!
Slip-n-Slide for all sorts of fun! Kept kids distracted for quite a long time.
It started off as a nice, cool day but it got super duper hot. My husband and father-in-law decided to help me cool off. I got shot with a water gun a lot and kept hugging everyone who was soaking wet even though I was wearing regular clothes instead of a swimsuit. We went home before it got dark because I was so tired and uncomfortable and the girls needed to go to bed. They ended up not being able to sleep.
It sounded like a battlefield in my neighborhood. Those fireworks you see that your city puts on? Neighbors all around us had those fireworks and were shooting them off across the street, a few houses down, behind our house, etc. We had plenty of fireworks to watch. Surprisingly Elaina was the most scared after being the most excited. I got Zoë out of her bed to see them out the window and then took her outside with me; she started shaking like a little leaf! Poor thing! So we ended up watching the Macy's thing on TV.
I love the Fourth of July! It's my favorite holiday. I had a lot of fun, the kids had a blast and my husband was like a big kid (his idea to bring the water slide and he brought the water balloons)!
