We woke up early and went and met the Gibson's at our neighborhood parade. It was PACKED but we found the Gibson crew and watched the RED, WHITE, AND BLUE Parade.
Then we came home to swim and grill out. But first I took some pictures of the kids in the backyard on the hammock.
And then told the girls to kiss Gavin--he was thrilled....
But it made for some cute pictures. :)
We stuffed ourselves silly, and played some games until it was time to go to the fireworks.
I made this yummy Phyllis Hoffman dessert.....it was SO GOOD...
Then we went to watch the fireworks with a few other people...
We went to the roof of a parking garage and had GREAT seats with a GREAT view.
I love this "make a funny face" picture...for all of you who laugh when I say Hadley has a BIG mouth...she really does...this picture is proof!
The kids danced and played chase on the rooftop until it was time for the fireworks show.
And then they began....in the 34 years that I have lived in this same town, I have NEVER seen a show quite like this..it was an impressive one this year.
Happy Birthday America!!
The Big Apple!
