4th of July Fun!

This year for the Fourth we drove up to the Lake the night before and headed home right after the fireworks. {Wes and his silly job!}

We started the morning off with a boat ride while it was still relatively cool, then lined up to watch the parade. Our afternoon was spent lounging around the house, having fun outside by the playground/water & playing games with the family. Then of course we watched some amazing fireworks before heading home. Overall, it was a pretty fun day!

This girl loves the sand!

    "clear lake" sounds like a great place! Love all the pictures 🙂

  • It's pretty fun! We don't get up there much, but it's not too far so we enjoy visiting 🙂

    P.S. I noticed you're "following" me now… {thanks!} do you have a blog as well?

  • Hayden is so cute 🙂 That looks like a fun day. We didn't have fireworks, because of the fires here in Colorado. The fireworks shows were canceled this year. But I made Sophie some faux "fireworks" (I posted about it on my blog) to open for fun. We went to the splash ground earlier in the morning. It didn't really bother me to miss the fireworks, but Sophie would have liked to see them. Hopefully next year we won't have any fires!

  • Looks like a fun day!

  • Oh my gosh — your little lovey is so cute!  Love that sweet teensy ponytail!  🙂

  • Love all the pictures of Hayden! She is absolutely adorable!

  • O yeah I heard about that! {the fireworks being cancelled that it… i think everyone knows about the fires!} I will definitely have to check out your post… sounds fun 🙂 Are you guys close to the fires at all?? Sad Sophie had to miss the fireworks 🙁

  • it was! Looking back at the pictures I kind of forgot how much we sqeezed into that day! {especially considering how many things we didn't get pictures of lol}

  • hehe – thanks! & i know, her hair is juuust barely long enough to get most of it up – and lucky for me she loves having her hair done!

  • thanks 🙂 we like her! 😛

  • Yes, we are in Boulder where the Flagstaff fire was. But the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs was the worst, and the High Park Fire in Fort Collins was worse than ours as well. Our air quality has been very bad, they just lifted the alerts a few days ago. We had to stay in for most of the past 2 weeks.

  •  Yikes! Well I'm glad you guys are safe so far 🙂
