Favorites From the 4th

We had a perfect  4th of July.  We celebrated all weekend.  Our weekend was filled with great friends, really good food, and HOT weather.  96 degrees takes on a whole new meaning when you add in humidity.
The pool was our outdoor activity of choice during the day.
Other than being inside in the AC, the pool was the only thing that kept us cool.
Oh how I wish I had his eyelashes!
We had 4th of July cake pops along with smores.
Have you seen the new StackerMallows?
They are perfect for smores!  I recommend roasting two StackerMallows for each smore.  I can't believe someone didn't think of these marshmallows before now.
M, A, and C played with friends until they were so tired that they could hardly stand up (literally).
Baseball, cars, corn hole, chase, hide-n-go seek, and scooters were a few of the things the children enjoyed.
We attended the 3rd annual 4th of July party at one of our neighbor's homes.  Not only is this party great every year, but I love getting to explore her home.  It is simply beautiful!
We love living in our neighborhood.  It reminds me a little of college because I can walk down the street and have coffee with friends at any time. 
This sweet stinker enjoyed the fireworks for the first time!  In the past, he would cover his ears and cry when the fireworks began.  This year he covered his ears, but he loved looking at them. 
Hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend!
