So how was everyone's 4th? Good? Awesome! What's that? How was mine? Oh, well since you asked, I will tell you all about it! I know there are a LOT of pictures, but just remember, you ASKED me to show them to you. Don't blame me. It's what YOU ALL WANTED.
So, this past weekend was the 4th of July, which for my non-American readers, is sorta a big deal in the good old USA. So we decided to go ahead and have a party out at my father in laws house. It was so great! That was Sunday night, then Monday we went downtown to the parade. Good times were had by all. And I documented every good time with my camera.
So I decided before the party started that nobody would really want to get in the pool, so I got ready as if this WASN'T a pool party. Spoiler alert, I was wrong. But here is the lone picture of me before I joined the masses in the water.
How can you say no when these want to swim this bad?
See...people went swimming
but some people chose to hang out by the giant fan instead. Not a bad deal
Aunt Missy loving on Sweet Cici
My cousin and his girlfriend joined the party
My parents came too! But alas, my mom is not in any pictures. Which is sad. Sorry mom!
Missy and George
Someone really enjoyed her first 4th of July!
This picture makes me laugh so hard. But the LOVE!
Arielle hanging out with the Doodle bug
The girls just hanging out
Me with Candice and Nicole. We made sure to get the pool in the background so that nobody thought Nicole was actually wearing this around town...
Our friends came in from out of town, which was so awesome!
Grandaddy with the sweet boy
Our soon to be newlyweds...just two more weeks!
So as evening rolled around the boys set up a projector so we could play the Wii outside. It was awesome!
Nick and Andy hanging out
Watching people play some Wii Sports
Joy on the 4th of July
This one looks sorta Lord of the Flies like, but I love it!
Watching the show
Hanging out by the Smores pit
And passed out.
BUT WAIT! We aren't done! The next day, we went to the PARADE! (I know...but some of these are worth showing too!)
Good family picture
Boo and Cici came along
And so did Ryan, Arielle and Alyssa!
Enjoying the view
Cici is very serious about the 4th of July
Watching the parade in action
There were floats that looked like this!
And somehow this couch drove down the road by itself...
We had such a great time! (except is was a million degrees during the parade and there were WAY too many political things and just random cars in the middle. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR CORVETTE, PLEASE GIVE ME CANDY)
But all in all, it was an absolutely perfect holiday weekend!
(are you still reading? You get a gold star!!)
Somehow, even though there are a million pictures, I somehow have missed some people. Sorry if you aren't pictured! You are still important! I swear.
