It finally feels like summertime here in Colorado!
Second only to Christmas, I think the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday! I love the fireworks, the barbecues, and the fun in the sun!
After our early-morning bike parade, here are a few more favorite moments from our family's Fourth of July celebration...
Our Fourth of July was a blazin' 96 degrees! At least for this Colorado girl, that was HOT!
To celebrate the toasty holiday, we finally inflated Little Man's little pool for the very first time. Yes, that lil' pool that we've had sitting in our garage since last year! We finally put it to good use.
Little Man took the opportunity to wash up his Matchbox cars. At least 5 and a half times.
What would the Fourth of July be without a barbecue?! Little Man absolutely adores his cousin. His Fourth of July was complete, just palling around with his cuz. Well, I think Grandma's chocolate cake and homemade ice cream were highlights of the day, too!
America's favorite past-time just happens to be our favorite past-time too. Little Man is finally ready to take some swings all on his own! This makes me one proud Mama. I have to admit, I enjoyed a little tee-ball myself!
The perfect ending to our Independence Day was doing our very own fireworks. I don't know what was more entertaining--the fireworks OR my husband and brother-in-law. I didn't know my husband could giggle like that! Silly pyro.
I hope you enjoyed your Fourth of July...
Now soak in every moment of your summer!
