5th Annual Fourth of July Parade and Picnic
We came back to Winston-Salem for our annual neighborhood Fourth of July Parade and Picnic. This year, we did not host the parade and water games, our wonderful friends, the Thorntons took over those festivities. The Campbells still hosted the picnic portion at their home. We had a great time with family and friends, but to be honest, it was a little bittersweet to not be a host family any more. It just made it seem even more real that we don't live there anymore. However, the weather was so perfect and we were surrounded by so many people we love and cherish, that it was hard to stay melancholy for long. Our children were in heaven being around their friends and cousins. They have missed playing together so much. After resting up after the party, we headed out to Lewisville, my favorite place to watch the fireworks.
