4th of July

For the first time ever on the 4th, we headed down to Seagrove for the parade. I have no idea why we've never done this! We won't miss it again though! Such fun! We sat right in front of Seagrove V and it was great.

The weather could not have been more perfect. Not a cloud in sight and it was actually on the cool side for July, with a great breeze!

 Patiently waiting for the parade to start (in the middle of the street!). Don't worry, the street was blocked off!

 We were ready in our red, white, and blue!

 Attempt at a family picture!

Somebody was REALLY excited.

Harrison racked up on beads. He put every one of them on that he caught! We thought he looked like Mr. T!
And even stole some of Hudson's...
 After the parade, we headed back to the condo where we had the annual 4th of July parade there.

And then it was time for races! This picture below cracks me up. Both boys were not paying one bit of attention and they are still standing on the starting line while everyone else is going! They apparently did not get my competitiveness.

 Then it was time to cover Daddy in shaving cream! They LOVED this!

 Do you see the water in the background? Wow, it was beautiful! And so calm too!

 Then it was back to the pool for more swimming.

 And beach time too!
 That night, Sand Cliffs had a pot luck cookout. There was a band and a piƱata for the kids. Such a beautiful view. I tried to get some pictures of the boys. Love the silly faces!

 And one (I repeat, ONE, out of 5,000) was decent.

 Maybe two turned out ok...

 They had red, white, and blue glowstick necklaces for the kids too! They really thought of everything!

 And then we settled in for the fireworks show, which was fabulous!

 It was a long day...the boys didn't go to sleep until almost 10! What a fun 4th it was though.

Saturday was our last full day. We started out the day at the splash pad at Alys.

And ended it with dinner at Louis Louis. We always do Red Bar, but with the crowds, I just didn't want to get in the mix this week. Louis Louis did not disappoint though!

 We went early to avoid crowds, so we got back in plenty of time to do one last trip to the beach.

 Someone had to take another bath because he covered himself with sand...

 Love this happy picture!

It was a great week at the beach. We already can't wait to go back!
