4th of July - 2015

July 4th holiday is one of my favorites! I love the traditions we have started with makes me smile to think about each year spending time together celebrating something so important. Growing up we had a group of friends/families that spent a lot of time together, holidays, events, vacations...those are memories I will have FOREVER. Now having children of my own I can't thank my parents enough for always being such great examples of how to be a friend. *LOVE*

We started the weekend with a pool party:

We hung out around the pool and enjoyed the sunshine! We ordered lunch and all brought fun snacks to share. Early evening we packed up and headed back home to shower before moving the party to the next house...

and because everyone always loves a good comparison...(2012-2015)

We ate too much food, the kids all ran wild, and we waited for it to get dark. ;) Our friends live in a neighborhood that allows fireworks. They don't take that lightly...pretty much EVERYWHERE you turn there are amazing fireworks, nothing small around there! It's so neat! to make it even better Stephen puts on his own show too! It's so much fun!!! *MEMORIES*

We headed home way past bedtimes but totally worth it! Sunday morning we continued to wear our red, white, and blue one last time for the weekend...

*as we were taking our pictures Sloane says to Mark, "Daddy, scoot back and make sure to get my shoes in the picture because they are cute!" Ha ha!!!
