Happy 4th of July!!!!!


We love the 4th of July. I have not yet uploaded this year's pics, but it's fun to look back at the fun we had last year. The festivities always begin with Uncle and Mrs. Sam arriving at the parade.

Then, the whole island paused to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Everyone is decked out in their red, white, and blue, which promotes patriotism.

The children love the trampoline jump. This year they were first in line!

We also have our annual cousin picture over snow cones that happily drip down all of their dresses and shirts. Each year I tell the children that they can have as many snow cones as they want. They love not having rules one day a year! This year one of our girls ate four!

It's always fun to swing in the hammock with everyone at the end of the day!

Well...about the cleaning...haha! Didn't get it done. Friday, Baby W didn't quite cooperate and then we left town for hubby's b-day. He was off today, so we spent it doing other things. Excuses! Excuses! Tomorrow is cleaning day...no excuses!! I will definitely get it done :) I even googled how to clean...haha...I'm motivated now!

Oh my goodness gracious, those little ladies and gentlemen are just TOO CUTE FOR WORDS! They are each so beautiful/handsome and I am in love with their precious outfits for the holiday. Bottomless snowcones sounds like an absolutely perfect day to me! Hope you had the most wonderful holiday weekend dear friend! xoxo
