We could so get used to having 4th of July on a Friday! A long weekend with the family, not having to rush back to work and what made it even better was the weather! It was not the usual scorching, Georgia July heat but a nice, cool breeze and temps in the 80’s. It surprised us all! We stayed outside the majority of the weekend and the kiddos played and played and played. It was wonderful and so relaxing!
So how did we celebrate the 4th of July in a good ole’ Georgia small town?
First up the local parade and festivities:
Then we headed to a family baby shower, can you believe we took no pics?!? Oops! Just use your imagination – she is having a baby girl, so there were lots of cute dresses and all things pink. 🙂 The boys were hilarious, Ty said, “I have never been to a baby shower before, are we all giving a baby a shower or taking a shower with a baby…..?” Poor kid, but he wonders no more because the family “showered” the expectant mommy with lots and lots of wonderful presents.
After the shower we headed to real water – the swimming pool! And what a great day to go, we practically had the pool all to ourselves. We did get pics there!
The day ended with a family dinner – with everyone! It has been years since we all have been together and enjoyed a meal. It only took us 7 tries to find a restaurant open on the 4th but the hunt was worth it. The absolute best way to spend your 4th of July – with family!
How did we end this already fun-filled, jam-packed day?
What a wonderful day! Next year has quite the challenge to live up to! 🙂
Hope your 4th was just as amazing as ours!
