4th of July, 2012

When we returned from the wonderful beach, we were thrilled to have Mimi and Pop come stay with us!  Unfortunately, mother nature was not kind to us and our power was out for 3 days in 100 degree weather.  After the kids, Brian and I camped out in the basement for a few nights, the Wallaces took a chance and flew in despite reports that we wouldn't have power for another week.  We all resolved to have a good time and make it work.  Wouldn't you know it we went out to eat that night (remember, we had no stove or oven?-ha!) and when we came home the power came on as we pulled into the driveway.

We were so excited!

Anyway, moving on.  We had a great time visiting with Mimi and Pop.  The most fun was the parade on the 4th of July.  Our town has the best parade.  It is about an hour and a half long and is so entertaining and patriotic.  Pop had a great idea from last year and decorated the wagon for the girls.  He and Harper were out there all morning getting it ready.  The girls looked adorable in it!!!!

These square dancers were my favorite part.  They were so good and I was cracking up at thinking how dizzy I would be spinning on a moving trailer.  

It was SO hot!  We kept cool in the shade.  And what would the 4th of July be without ice cream?

We went to the same spot near the square for some shade and it was just a perfect time.  Then we spent the rest of the day at the pool.
