4th Of July Fun

Hi Foxy Friends! I was feeling pretty awful today, basically slept the entire day...but feeling slightly better. Hopefully on the mend....Advil Cold and Sinus is my best friend right now. Anyway, I thought I would dedicate a post to our 4th of July fun! That way I have it all in one post. So let's get started.

My cousin always throws a party the day before, so the kids can decorate their bikes for the parade the following day. We drove the 2 hours out to their house, stopped at our favorite sandwich place and then drove to a park nearby to eat it.

The kids looked at the fish and I got a cute picture.

Oh and I did some fun 4th of July nails too, I just love Color Street!

Soon the cousin were together again. It's been a while since we've seen them in a normal setting, so the kids loved every minute of being together.

I was in charge of the candy, white and blue theme...I think I did a pretty good job :)

Got a great picture of the girls of some of the kids...I love this age, they really cooperate when you want to take a picture.

The kids discovered the joy of 4 square.

Ate some dinner.

We were having so much fun, we almost forgot to decorate the bikes! But here is the before.

Mini Fox was really getting into it, with some help.

And the after, the kids did a great job! So great that we ended up winning best group! We call ourselves the Firecracker Cousins.

Afterwards we played, Right, Left Middle...but with real money. It was fun.

Everyone really got into it. You should play it at your next fun.

Then we had a massive sleepover.

Breakfast the next day consisted of Flag Waffles.

Off to the parade we went.

Cousins ready for the parade.

First time getting a group shot...with our winning certificate front and center.

Baby Fox did great on his bike...definitely time to upgrade him! I was worried about nothing, he went into the lead and I tried to run to keep up, but couldn't...

Some of the cousins decided they wanted to ride back home instead of taking the cars...I volunteered to take was a lot of running on my part to get them the mile or so home, safely, but they all listened and stopped at streets and waited for me to catch up.

Small party afterwards to eat some more breakfast.

Rested a bit, then headed out for dinner, movie and firework watching. We parked our cars where we were going to watch the fireworks, did dinner and movie and it worked out PERFECT!

Tried to get a shot of everyone watching the movie...

Waiting for the fireworks to start.

Perfect way to end 4th of July extravaganza.

Until next year! How was your week?
