A few days
weeks late but who's keeping track?
We had a wonderful 4th of July this year! We started off going to the Lenexa 4th of July parade in the morning!
The boys before the start of the parade when the streets were closed! They thought they were the coolest ever!!
Waiting for the parade to start, such suspense! Such excitement!
Our friends that just moved here from Texas joined us all day! We love showing them our Kansas pride! I mean, there were state senators, representatives and the governor! That's a good parade!
The boys favorite part of the parade! Well...and the candy!
Afterwards, we headed to Mogo's for a family BBQ! Ribs, beans, and chips! The rest of the day we napped and grilled out! Does it get anymore American than that?!
That night, we watched fireworks with our friends and enjoyed being outside without melting from humidity and heat!
An overall great day!!
But our American spirit end on Friday the 4th, oh no!
We headed to Home Depot on Saturday to make bug catchers! It was confirmed that I should stay away from tools and building ANYTHING! I opened Will's pieces and scattered them all over the table, kept dropping everything and his was put on upside down! Luckily he's 4 and loves me for all my flaws!
We next headed to Mogo's to pick up a tree! I mean, what else says USA than helping your grandmother get rid of her dead tree? The kids
and especially Eric loved every second of this adventure!
Hope you had a wonderful, patriotic 4th of July!
