Festivals, Floats, And Family

I promise I'll stop with the title alliteration...maybe.

Everyone have a good 4th?
The girls had a blast at the parade...

Can you tell?

Modest, isn't she :)?

They waved at the floats, caught candy, and blew some bubbles...


Absolutely nothing could tear them away from the festive parade and entertainment...

...well, unless you count the 5 minutes they spent watching a bug crawl along the street, you know, because that can be really interesting and exciting too. Sigh :).

After the festival we spent the rest of the day at a family cookout. We decided to skip the fireworks this year - too late for the girls - enough fun for one day - too tired - need sanity - etc.

I have lots of pics coming from more outings we ventured out on this past week, and from a couple photo shoots w/ some amazingly adorable kiddos. I'm also gearing up for some changes that are coming to our blog in the next couple weeks - it's time for a change around here, don't ya think?

But for now, we are off to the pool...or park...or both...oh who knows!

Happy Monday!

Kate, thank you so much for your consistent friendship and encouragement. I am so grateful to have a friend, even from across the miles, to know so well what I am going through, and then some. If we ever figure out a way to get that coffee date, that would be amazing! :)

love the pictures, as usual. They are great! Sorry that I never made plans last week. I was sick all week and not feeling great over the weekend. I think that once swim team is over our lives will be better! I am getting a little bit sick of it already.

Fun 4th pics! Was sad to miss the parade this year. Looks like the girls had fun. They look super cute!

The pics are beautiful!!! I had to giggle about the pic of the girls staring at a bug. Today, Cole and Bella were obsessed with watching a ladybug crawl on one of our zucchini plants. They must have watched it for a good 7 minutes. I was like, "how come you all can't manage to have this great of an attention span when I'm reading books to you?"

I like your title alliteration, just might steal the idea :)It looks like you had great weather for the 4th. We sat and watched a parade in cold, rainy weather, but the candy was still good :)and the rained stopped in time for fireworks!
