It's been awhile since I blogged. With my kids wrapping up their school year, then summer beginning, I completely lost track of time!
We've had a busy summer so far with swim lessons, pool fun, playing with friends, and trying to keep cool in our 100 degree heat! But I haven't done any permanent damage to the kids (that I know of) and everyone seems to be having fun.
Happy belated 4th of July!
We celebrated our Independence Day on Monday with a few festivities. We watched the 4th of July Parade in Downtown Round Rock. It was the first year we brought the kids, and they loved it! We started off a little rocky since we got there about 45 minutes early to get a good spot. Patience is not a strong virtue when it comes to my children. But we finally made it to the start of the parade, and I was told it was worth the wait. Shocking! (yes I know said with all kinds of dripping sarcasm)
There were tons of floats and most of them threw candy which is always a win when it comes to children. All 4 got into it! We saw a few small bands and lots of red, white, and blue.
At the end of the day, I brought Jackson and Cullen over to parent's house to watch the City of Round Rock's fireworks. A bonus was they're neighbors bought and shot off a few fireworks of their own. It was legit since they don't live the city limits. The boys also had fun playing with a couple of sparklers. Lots of neighbors setting off fireworks. Cullen and Jackson loved it!
I hope all of you had a great 4th of July! And a big THANK YOU to all of our soldiers (both here on US soil and those deployed) for continuing to fight for our freedom!
