Unfortunately, my camera was out of battery (which I didn't realize until right before we left), so we just have a few phone pictures.
Matthew was a good sport, sleeping most of the time in the stroller, but when he woke up, he was just happy to hang out and play with his feet (a favorite past time of his).
The above picture is Ben with Mrs. Balogh, the awesome kindergarten teacher who invited us to her house! The below picture is my good friend, Rachael, who has triplets in Ben's class.
After the parade, it was time to load up in the wagon and walk home.
After a traditional July 4 BBQ, we had the afternoon to relax and play with the cousins, which is our yearly tradition.
After a rest and some dinner, it was fireworks time! I stayed home with Matthew, but Daddy packed up the wagon with these three and went to meet up with some friends to watch the fireworks at Arlington Park (also within walking distance...did I mention I love the location of our new house?).
It was a long day and these girls were tired.
Apparently, Juliette wrapped herself up in the blanket on the ground and went to sleep - she is lucky she wasn't stepped on!
This picture cracks me up because Juliette got moved to a chair and this is Rachael trying to wake her up when it was over. Juliette will fall asleep anywhere if she decides she is tired. Love that girl!
And Ben and Daddy at the fireworks. It was a great day and a lot of fun!
