Fourth of July 2017

Hope you all had an amazing fourth of July with your friends & families!!

Monday we met up with some of our friends & went to a local fourth celebration with some food trucks & kids activities. We didn’t end up staying for fireworks because 1. HEAT and 2. the kids were just exhausted from walking/dancing/asking for snacks. One of my favorite parts of the day was that we gave Claire her first pigtails, that morning Eloise & Harper kept asking her if she wanted ponytails so we put them in her hair just like theirs and she loved it. When we were getting dressed up to leave, she brought me a ponytail holder and grabbed her hair and said “toe nails? toe nails!” Toddler language is my favorite ever!!

On the fourth, we spent most of the day at my parents’ neighborhood pool. They have a kids play area that is so perfect for our girls’ ages, little slides and a wading pool. Everyone was exhausted so we came home to nap in the afternoon while it stormed for a few hours. There is nothing better than snuggling up on the couch during a storm! The event we planned to go to got rained out early in the evening, so we took a detour and went out for tacos instead. We brought the girls home so they could change into their pajamas before walking to nearby fireworks. There were tons of fun fourth of July parties going on outside so we listened to nearby music & the girls danced around with their flags while they waited patiently for fireworks to start. The show was amazing & everyone did so good, no ear plugging or anything! 😉

I will never get tired of these bomb pop jammies.

Have a great rest of the week, hope your fifth of July hasn’t been too rough! XO

    Omg it sounded like a perfect celebration! I LOVE love love toddler language and toddler logic! “Toe nails”!!! My daughter couldn’t pronounce “quack” or “truck” when she was almost two. You can imagine what it sounded like when we were sitting at a Light and I hear “bye bye f#€k”! My family got such a kick out of her mispronunciation that they’d ask her to say “dump truck” and “BIG dump truck”!!!
