Pictures from the 4th!

We had such a fun day on the fourth of July! Our neighborhood had its annual block party and it really was such a blast. For the kids, we had pools and a slip n slide, along with face painting and a bike parade around the block. For the adults, yummy food and drinks, great socializing time, and of course, we ended the day watching the local fireworks, which were only about a mile or two away at our local city park.
Chloe going in for a hug with one of our sweet neighbor girls. She absolutely loves any child who seems even a day younger than her.
Emma after a beautiful face painting job done by the professional face painter we hired for the day.
My goofy peanut getting ready to dive in!
Bringing up the rear of the kids bike parade. Seriously, my belly just cracks me up! It has its very own nose!
The bike parade in full swing.
Daddy testing out our slip n slide before opening it to the neighborhood. His comment was, "man, it's sure not as long as I remember it being as a kid!"
Launch number one, Super Emma!
Super Chloe really flew! She's such a water baby, no fear at all!
All in all, it was a glorious day, everything a summer day in July should be. Next week Emma has VBS (Vacation Bible School) and her birthday, it will be a full week to be sure. I am really in such shock at the way the summer is flying by! It's almost halfway over:(. But I love living in Colorado, because just when you're ready for a change in the weather, a new season begins. I hope you are taking in every sweet breath of your summer and relishing in memories made.
