4th of July

Happy 4th of July!

I can't believe how fast the summer is zooming by!  We had such a fun 4th of July!  We went down to the lake the weekend before the holiday to celebrate with family.  On Saturday we entered the 4th of July Golf Cart Parade.  Gabe really wanted a golf cart with a Statue of Liberty theme so crazy Meme ordered a huge cardboard cut out to attach to the cart.  It took a little bit of critical thinking to figure out how to get it attached but we did it!  And we even won first place for Most Patriotic!  There were lots of other cute themed carts from the Flintstones, to a beach theme with a blow up pool attached to the top, to a Red Solo Cup cart!  Gabe was so excited that they won 1st place!  The rest of the weekend consisted of a lot of boating, swimming and tubing.  And on our last night there we went fishing and caught quite a few!  I even got to catch a few!  We came home on the 4th and popped just a few fireworks of our own and then headed over to Matt's dad's house to watch the city fireworks from his yard.  It was a fun time!

The award winning golf cart!

I love seeing all three of my kids
chatting on the back of the golf cart like they're the best of friends!
