The Fourth

We spent the afternoon/evening with friends... swimming, grilling, eating, firework-ing. It was very relaxing and very fun. Our dear friends are moving to a different base so this was our last time to see them. It was so bittersweet. They've been such good friends over the past 3 years and our kids love each other. I'm sure we will see them again at some point! '

Here's some pictures from our day...

Can't skip the watermelon on the Fourth of July!
Or the swimming!

Or the popsicles
Or the slip-n-slide!

And you DEFINITELY can't skip the fireworks, sparklers, and poppers!

(A whole box at once.... nice....)
Hello, cuteness!
After our friends left, we decided last-minute to head on post for the free concert and fireworks show. Charlie Daniels and Little Big Town were performing. It was almost over once we finally got there, but I was really looking forward to the fireworks, so I wasn't too disappointed. It got a little rainy and windy, and we were thinking that they might cancel the fireworks, but they didn't... And they were awesome! I suppose you can't beat a military base's fireworks show! Jax enjoyed it... as long as he was on our laps. It was a good day and a good way to celebrate our last Independence Day in the military!


Love my little family :)
