We had a great 4th of July this year! We started the day by going to my good friend’s parents’ house. Sarah, my life-long BFF is moving back to Tulsa from Texas and we are SOOO excited. Her parents live less than a mile from us and have a beautiful backyard with an amazing pool. I’m bummed that I didn’t take any pictures but we had a great time swimming and hanging out for several hours on the 4th.
Then we came home so Foster could nap and we could get ready to go out for a fun evening!
We were invited to go to our friend’s Country Club for dinner and fireworks.
Here are the kids this year and the picture below is from last year in the same place.
(you can tell we had the gazebo painted!)
We had to wake Foster up from a nap so he wasn’t interested in smiling for pictures.

We also ran into Sophia (far right) who was in Emma and Aubrey’s pre-k class at school this year.

This was probably the best part of the evening… the kids had a BALL rolling down this large hill while waiting for the fireworks to start. Emma, Aubrey and Landon rolled down this hill over and over again and then just ran wild on the putting greens. I kept thinking, “Man, this is what summer is all about!”
Foster is much too “sophisticated” to roll down hills! He sat in a chair with the adults.
After rolling down the hill the kids broke out a dance party- they were hilarious!
Finally it was time for the fireworks and what did the kids do??? HIDE!!! They all hid under the blanket. Foster started crying and I had to walk with him. He loved the fireworks last year but this year was different. I think the noise bothered him the most.

We had such a great day- I just love the 4th of July!!!
