This year we’ll be heading up to Virginia to celebrate the 4th of July with my in-laws. They live in a very small town, without even so much as a stoplight, but there is something special about celebrating a patriotic holiday in a small, southern town.
We’ll go on the lake, hopefully find a parade to watch, and if David can make it (and I’m quite sure he can!), we’ll let him stay up to watch the fireworks. Luke can barely make it past 7:15p these day so I’m sure he’ll hit the hay early!
I picked up some cute, coordinating outfits from Target for the boys to wear on the 4th! I also grabbed a few festive things from the dollar section and this picnic blanket too! I have very fond memories of watching a small town parade in Wisconsin with my family and I’m so excited to introduce David and Luke to that fun! The fire trucks always scared me as a kid, just because they are so loud, but the firefighters always tossed out the best candy that we could run and scoop up off the street!
More often, as the boys are getting older, I’m getting the “are they twins?” question when we are out. And while I still think they look so different, I’m beginning to see a closer resemblance as Luke is growing out of his “baby-ness”.
David insisted on pulling the wagon when we tried out the blanket and blew up the ball. He’s always looking for something to do so he can be a “worker”!
I hope you have a Happy 4th of July!
