We held our fourth annual party to celebrate the Fourth of July! It rained while we were setting up in the morning, but the forecast said 0% chance rain for the rest of the morning. Our guests began to arrive at 10am and we started to decorate our bikes, scooters, and wagons for the parade.
Then the clouds rolled back in and it got really dark.
We had a short flag ceremony inside.
Once the rain stopped, the kids grabbed their parade gear and we headed out.
When the parade was over we enjoyed Popsicles and more water fun.
We headed up to the Campbells for more fun and a picnic.
We went home to rest and get ready for fireworks. The boys tried their hand at croquet and Nana and Papa and Rachel came by to see us, too.
We appreciate the friends who came and braved the temperamental weather to party with us. We had a lot fewer guests than we usually have (50+ instead of 80+), but just as much fun!
