As I sit here typing this post, I’m listening to the fireworks outside our door and all I can think with each BOOM is, please don’t wake up my kids! When did I become such a grandma? But seriously, STOP with the fireworks people!
We had a festive few days celebrating our nation’s independence! I really love the 4th of July. But according to my husband, I say that about every holiday!
I had Turner and Gracie dressed in their most festive outfits since Friday! It’s never too early to start celebrating, right? We pretty much spent the weekend lounging, grilling, and playing outside, while Gracie perfected her RBF (I had to google that too. Don’t feel bad).
Saturday afternoon, the kids woke up early from their naps, so we went out for an early ice cream treat before supper. There’s a cute little hole in the wall called Jack’s Cosmic Dogs where they have retro soft-serve that hit the spot!
This morning, we did some last minute grocery shopping to get ready for our BBQ this afternoon. Gracie took an early nap so we had some quality time with her while Turner napped, which rarely happens! So she played with Turner’s giant garbage truck and we passed her around like a hot potato to get some photos because she’s SO stinkin’ cute and poses for pictures!
We had some friends over, all of whom have kids. So it was a fun and crazy day! We set up the sprinkler so they could run around outside and get as messy as they wanted!
Everyone had a great time. It was the perfect celebration! Every holiday gets better and better with these two. But this was one for the books! This weekend was what childhood dreams are made of. Happy 4th, Friends!
