Our 4th

No…not our fourth child…this is a post about our July 4th. Just in case you were jumping to conclusions before you got to the pictures.

Ever since last year our kids have been asking to be in the kiddie parade. So Jill and I decided to walk for the MOPS group and were joined by one other MOPS mom. (she didn’t get in the pictures)

Hard to see in  this picture but Jill and I made the girls matching skirts for the girls and she decked out her double stroller for Thad and Ava.

Anson has been practicing all kinds of tricks for his parade debut. Our favorite quote of the day, “Mom…should I start out the parade doing my wheelies, or what?”

Abby just trucked along like it was nothin’!

Imagine the street lined with kids…all blowing noisemakers.

 Happy 4th!

My heart did quicken for a second at "our 4th" but slowed down as I remembered it was just the 4th of July. I admit, I was disappointed! :P :)

Great pictures of the kids though. Being in a parade is very exciting.

What was it like wearing summer clothes at the parade? I almost forgot that other people are actually having summer weather. The kids were all so adorable. What a fun memory.

Wish I could have been there to watch, wave, and buy ice cream for everyone.
