Happy 4th!!!

The boys LOVED the parade yesterday morning, AND the fireworks. I just couldn't believe it! I thought they'd cry or get upset, but they loved every minute. In the morning, we went to my mom's for breakfast with Aunt CC and Uncle Mike,





Mimi and Papa, and Mike's family. They enjoyed a second breakfast, then we watched the centennial parade. Jack clapped and waved his flag at the parade,





and Summy played with a balloon one of the floats gave him and waved his flag too!



They had a great time and despite the weather, we all enjoyed it. It rained lightly on and off throughout the parade.

In the evening we went to my Papaw's house for dinner and family time. We were joined by the boys' Great Aunt Lisa and Great Uncle Tim, and my cousins Andrew and Nathaniel. They had a really hard time falling asleep in such a strange place, but I nervously woke them up for the fireworks. They just sat and watched the fireworks and talked about them.



I am amazed! They seemed to love watching them and no one cried or made any sort of scared motion while watching. The fireworks are shot off at the end of Papaw's street so they are very loud and close, but neither of them were scared. They really enjoyed it!

Hope everyone had a lovely fourth of July!

Hope you had a great weekend!
