We LOVE this holiday. REALLY love it. It’s a toss up between the 4th and Christmas – I still can’t pick a favorite!
This long weekend couldn’t have been any better! We relaxed (got really burnt) by the pool, watched a parade, spent time at our friends’ new house, and then stayed overnight at my parents’ house. We did a bon fire, lit off fireworks, and played games with the kids. We ended the weekend at a little beach on Lake Wisconsin. I grew up on this lake so it was so much fun to spend the day there. Wesley loved it, too. A little too much – we couldn’t pull him away from it!
It’s always tough getting back into the swing of things after a long, fun holiday, but all of the activities, sunshine & fresh air, and time spent with family is more than worth it! I’ve been trying to do a better job of documenting personal & family time both so I can share it here, and so I have more photos for the family yearbook I’m going to create at the end of the year. Enjoy just a few of my favorites from the 4th!
