The 3rd of July (2009 edition)

>> Saturday, July 4, 2009

I don't ever remember July 3rd being a holiday but I guess it is sometimes. Matt didn't have to work (yeah!) so we got the girls ready and headed to a little fountain near our house to play before it got too crowded and the bigger kids got there.

Then after naps and dinner our local YMCA had a big family celebration last night ending with fireworks. I was grateful for the fact that Matt was able to join us b/c I am not sure the girls would have had as much fun b/c it was pretty hot and sunny so we set up a little 1/2 tent shade thing and Ruby and I spent most of our time lounging there while Matt took the girls around and got their faces painted and bounced in a bounce house. We also splurged on funnel cakes, kettle corn, and Piper's favorite deep fried oreos :) We know how to live :)

We did not get home from the festivities until 10:30 pm and the girls were up this morning bright and early at 6:45 soooo we will have our own little fireworks display in the driveway tonight. I might have to pick up a few more things though b/c I LOVE the 4th almost as much as I LOVE Halloween!
