Happy Belated 4th of July!

We had a really nice time at our friend Michelle's house with her fav guy, Mike and her kiddos! After partaking in some tasty food, we headed out on 2 block long walk. Well at least that's what she told me! LOL! The walk was a little longer then that, but that's ok since I didn't work out (P90X) on that day.

I was so proud of myself for remembering to bring all the food, sunscreen, bubbles (for the kids and baby), and drinks!











BUT! I forgot my camera! AGH! I swear Mommy Brain strikes again! Luckily I had my trusty cell phone to take pictures with. Ok they aren't the best and for some random reason after the age of 35 my hands are not so steady anymore. What's up with that? Everything seemed to fall apart, my eyesight went to crap, my elasticity on my whole body is shot and the bladder! Well that's another story (I love my sling!)

Anyway...

The parade went on for over an 1 1/2 hours! I was surprised! I don't think I ever sat through a parade that long!  Afterwards we went back to the house and I stuffed myself with more yummy food and dessert! Though I missed out on the Chips Ahoy Summer cookies and I brought them! LOL! The kids went through their candy bags! They had quite a stash, there was so trading involved that took about a half hour. Luckily for me I really like Tootsie Rolls!

Didn't see any big fireworks. We were too pooped to deal with the traffic. I told the girls to go through the back of the apartment to look but neither one wanted to get bit up. All in all it was a fun time!
