I'd like to promise, there will be shorter posts in the future... I just can't do that.
We spent 4th of July weekend in Fort Worth again this year. It's fun to spend the holiday with family.
Before everyone got there, Aaron's mom gave Kade and Aaron their birthday gifts.
The swimming happened. A lot of swimming. Also, Max looked like a ninja turtle in his floatie.
Water fights happened. Relaxing happened. Eating happened.
Then everyone got ready to go watch fireworks.
We played with glow-sticks and watched fireworks. It wasn't too hot, it was perfect!
Tadd slept through the whole thing. We learned later, it was probably for the best.
The next day we went to the zoo. Max was in full character.
Kade's favorite bird/animal is the Eagle.
Later that night we did more fireworks and some sparklers. Max and Kade loved it. Tadd, not so much. Turns out they scare him. A lot.
Tadd preferred the glow-sticks. Way less terrifying.
We had a dance party and then decided to have the kids swim for the glow-sticks. It ended up being just as much fun for the adults as it was for the kids.
It was a nice weekend away! We loved celebrating our country and feel so grateful to live in the United States.
