Fourth of July

We really had such a wonderful Fourth of July this year! We want to introduce a love and appreciation for our country and all the history that still makes this nation great as early as possible. For a toddler, that basically means cheering at a parade in our sweet little town. It's close enough to walk over with the wagon and meet friends.

Boys are so fun and parades are made for them! Fire trucks, loud cars, drums and bands! What more could they want?!?

Before the parade, we cheered Josh across the finish line of the July 4th Race (10K) along with Mr. Brad and a couple other friends from church. Dax and I "raced" to Starbucks and then to find the finish line before Daddy crossed.

In the afternoon, we really just relaxed, grilled and enjoyed strawberry short cake. All-in-all, a very American weekend.

Here are our favorite pictures from a very fun day!

We are so proud of Daddy and all his hard work -Rochester Marathon, here he comes!

Mr. Brad and Daddy, great running buddies.

Cutest little fan.

Ready for the parade to start.

Our favorites! Look at that chunky baby face all -if we could only take off the Boston hat.

Serious parade patrons.

 In awe of all the truckies.

Seriously. This is our life.

Cheering for the fire trucks! 

Waiting for the trucks to make "beep beep" noises.

Go, go, go.

Hooray, truckies!

Best we could do. Toddlers are the most fun to photograph.

He thinks he's part of their family.

Serious dance moves. I cried tears of laughter.

His white boy moves.

Serious white boy moves.

They really think suckers are only for drumming. This is an awesome mama win!!!

We can't handle his cuteness.

Three sweet babes -toddlers don't do pictures on purpose. Ever.

Love these sweet friends and so thankful they live in our little town!

Walking home withe a hungry boy in the wagon.

Nom. Nom. Nom.
