I love the 4th of July and to make things even better this year we were able to celebrate my brother's graduation from Boot Camp! He is now officially a Marine! We are so proud of him and are so thankful that he is here with us to celebrate for a few days before heading out again!
We started out our day with our town's annual parade!
I LOVE taking the kids each year and making sweet memories with them!
We always get there early to set things up and then we wait until the parade makes its way down to us!
We sit with so many of our friends which makes things so much more fun!
It was a hot morning, so as soon as the parade wrapped up we headed home to grab our suits and head over to my parents for some pool time and a cookout!
We always love our time together! We had a wonderful afternoon filled with swimming, cooking out, playing games and doing sparklers (in between rain showers)!
We finished up the evening by heading down the street for the fireworks show!
We are thankful for our freedom and for a wonderful day to celebrate it!
