I LOVE the 4th of July. Basically, I love any reason to dress in color-coordinated outfits and drink out of festive straws.
This morning, we decided to have a last minute BBQ in the afternoon. Leading up to that, our day was pretty low key. Since Stew was off from work, I went to the gym in the morning and then hit the grocery store for a few things (that may or may not have included s’mores ice cream sandwiches). It was surprisingly empty, so I was in and out!
When I got home, we all had some lunch, and then Turner napped. Stew and I cleaned the house and did some laundry. Once Turner woke up, around 2, we hit the pool! I love having a pool in our neighborhood. I get very grumpy in traffic, so we all win this way!
We came home, got cleaned up, and prepped for the BBQ! And by prepped I mean Turner ate peanut butter crackers and looked out the window waiting for all of his friends to show up.
Stew’s brother and his wife came over, along with my friend Toni, her husband Jason, and their son Andrew (Turner’s bestie). Side note: If you’re wondering why Turner has a headband on, it’s actually a belt that he likes having tied around his head. His alter-ego is better known as “Rambaby”.
We had so much fun! Since it was last minute, we did BYOMeat and a side to share. The men grilled while we hung out with the kiddos.
I love any excuse to celebrate. 4th of July is among the best. No drama, no gifts, no cards, just fun! Now that we got all of our partying out, it’s time to be old people and grumble about the fireworks that will undoubtedly keep me awake all night! Happy 4th!
