4th of July Parade

We spent the long weekend visiting Dustin's family in Joplin, MO. We wanted to enjoy some festivities so we joined some friends for his hometown parade on Saturday. It was a hot day, but not nearly as hot as it has been here in Oklahoma. I think we were there on one of their very first triple digit days but we enjoyed a but of the cooler weather!

Our friends invited us to a family get together to watch a firework display that night. Even though this was in someones backyard and put on by an individual it was one of the best shows we have ever been to. The display was set to music and we watched from the inside in the sunroom. This was Olivia's first time seeing fireworks and after a few minutes of looking at them she fell asleep!

Gracie looks so cute!

And I'm glad you got to enjoy fireworks. We missed seeing them here, but after all the fires, I think our country officials made the right decision. Our firefighters needed a break!

And it would be nice to get some of that 100 degree weather. I'm going to have to pack an ice chest when I go get birthday groceries because driving just three miles to get home from Walmart is enough to make my ice cream melt. :-(
