I'm behind on my recaps and fourth of July is no exception. We decided this year to head out to watch the fireworks at a local lake that my in laws own a small cottage on. We headed out on Wednesday early evening.
The inlaws also have a boat so boarded the boat and headed out for a quick boat ride. Addie hates this life vest. It sits right up under his chin and squishes her face. But, safety first.
We docked over at the winery that opened that day. It's gorgeous at the winery. They've got a lot of work cut out for them but the place is gorgeous!
Somehow I didn't take any pictures of Addie and the fireworks. We were out on the boat watching them from the lake and it started to rain on us so I'm sure we were distracted. Addie was a little bored by them and kept saying "go fireworks". Overall the night was really nice and we had fun.
The next day was the fourth and we headed to the local community parade. It was packed. Loads of kids including about 15 - 8 year old boys sitting to our right. Poor Addie, she didn't have much luck getting loads of candy. This picture sort of breaks my heart.
I love this girl so much. She did have a few kids who gave her a piece of candy if she wasn't fast enough. I'll make sure to raise my children to be like these kids and aware of the younger children around you. I couldn't believe some of the parents didn't at least tell their kids to watch running around her. Anywho, she enjoyed the parade and I think next year will be a better age for her to be a bit quicker.
We finished up the holiday with a cookout with my best friend and enjoyed the rest of the day very low key. I can't believe next year Addie will be 3.5 and I'll have a 6 month old baby.
