Fourth of July

Playing a little catch up on the ol' blog.
Fourth of July was a little different this year!  We normally have the tradition of spending it at the beach house, but this year we stayed home.  We were headed to the beach a few weeks later for some wedding planning for my brother, so we stayed home this fourth.

It definitely did not have the same feel, but we made the best out of it and actually ended up having a really nice day.  I don't do well with case you haven't picked up on that yet.  But I rolled with it and brought out all the festive stops for my two little bits.

We started the day the same way we start it every year with our flag cake! And as per usual there may have been more eating than making.

Around lunch time my family came out to swim and grill out.

Then we spent the afternoon resting up for our neighborhood block party.  The girls showed up in style with their patriotically decked out car!

We didn't let the rain spoil our fun.  We did sparklers under the over hang and on the porch with my brother and his fiancé.  As in years past Jolie was still all about it and Brynn was still terrified.

Finally around nine the weather cleared up and my neighbor put on quite the firework show for us!
