I hope everyone had a fun 4th. We had a great one that lasted all weekend long! The joy of having it fall on a Sunday, right.

(My cute patriotic boys modeling the adorable outfits their Grandma Bigelow got for them- Thanks Grandma!)

On Saturday morning we woke up bright and early and headed out to my parent's house for a new family tradition (we started last year & love it).

My parent's little town has an awesome parade, awesome becuase you get LOTS of candy! Brayden got a whole sack full. After the parade my mom makes the most yummy breakfast for everyone...crepes and breakfast casserole. (Is your mouth watering, mine is...my mom makes the best crepes!)
(My handsome guys patiently waiting for the parade to come to them... and the candy. (Notice they are wearing sweatshirts, it was surprisingly cool for the 4th)
We can't go to Grandma and Grandpa Moore's house without riding the four wheeler and lawn mower. (Don't worry the blades aren't going on the mower so we are being somewhat safe).
After the parade the town does a all day celebration with food, games and activities. We hit the free stuff for kids. They had a jump house (I think that is what it is called), a fishing pond (they fished for a prize), and a train ride. Brayden didn't really get the fish pond, he wanted to catch real fish but liked it after he got the toy. His favorite was the train ride. Parker is still too small to do much but he liked being able to wander a bit on the grass.
That night we had a small BBQ with my parents and brother and sister in-law (Matt and Jen). Then being the cool Aunt and Uncle Matt and Jen are they brought over some fireworks. After putting Parker to bed we got to be little pyros. Brayden loved the sparklers and setting up the fireworks before they were lit. After we had used up all of Matt and Jen's fireworks we went down the street to watch our neighbors show. They had TONS of fireworks and it was so nice of them to let us watch.
On Sunday after church we had another BBQ with some of Caleb's family. Then we went to close to the fairgrounds and watched the BIG firework show. Brayden now LOVES fireworks.
We had an awesome 4th of July! We would like to thank all of the men and women who have sacrificed so much on our behalf so that we can enjoy the freedom that we have! "Freedom isn't free" and I am so grateful for those brave people who are willing to fight for our Freedom. Thanks.
