Fourth of July

We had a fun Fourth of July weekend and, everyone was totally exhausted by last night! It began at 9am on Saturday when the kids and I (Casey had to work all weekend) went downtown to watch the parade... we met up with friends there and the kids all got lots of candy! Then, from there we went to the park for the community celebrations. Katie and Tys got to ride on a few rides and we hung out with our friends at Judy and Sharla's homemade ice cream/ice tea booth. It was pretty hot so, we only lasted until around 1:30 before heading home for naps. That evening we met up with our friends again and had a church picnic at the park... we spent the evening playing games, fishing at the duck pond(Uncle Doug took Katie fishing which, she loved!) and relaxing. I didn't really take a lot of pictures but, here are a few....
The kids waiting for the parade to begin... they're ready with their bags to collect candy!
