4th of July Fun

For the 4th of July, we took a break from working on the house and went up to the river.  Although it was a little stormy at first, it turned out to be a very nice weekend.

On Saturday morning, Adelaide’s friend, Clayton, came over to play on the front porch.  They found the Pop Its and had a blast throwing them down and popping them.

We weren’t sure what the weather was going to do so we stayed in a little longer.  This allowed us to get A’s bubble machine going.  She loved it!

When we finally decided to get on the water, we decided to go out in our friend’s Austin’s boat.  Adelaide loved it, because it goes fast.  Mallory wanted to tube and Adelaide decided she would join her for her first adventure out on the tube.  She seemed to like it at first, but soon decided she wanted off. 

Kevin decided he would try to learn how to wakeboard.  Although he gave it a good try, he was not successful.  Maybe next time! 

Making sure Daddy was OK!
The others had to show him how to do it.

That night, we shot fireworks.  Adelaide loved them!   We even let her hold a sparkler when we got back to the house.

The next day, we went out on our boat.  We took a drive down to Crooked Creek for ice cream.  Adelaide enjoyed a Pop Up and got it everywhere!  She was so tired from all of her adventures that she gave up and took a nap on the boat while we floated down the river.  (There wasn’t much beach due to the storms.) 

Pulling in to Crooked Creek

Once she woke up, we enjoyed some family fun in the water before getting out to go home.

Fruit Snacks!
No Beach = Playing on the Front of the Boat

Pointing to our Vehicle
I think the weekend was needed for us all.  Little Bit was not very excited on Monday morning when she realized that we wouldn’t be going on the water. 

Until next time,
