4th of July Weekend. . .

We had a great 4th of July this year.
We went to the Grandville city parade where the kids got a ton of candy and beaded necklaces.
Seth loved the fire trucks and Isaac had fun dancing to all the music.
And Andy was able to try out the Michigan Elephant Ears at the fair.

After the parade and fair Andy took Isaac swimming at the community pool while Seth and I took a nap.
That night we had a BBQ and fireworks with our friends/neighbors.

we drove up to Pentwater, MI to meet up with our friends the Smiths.
We had such a great time hanging out with them.
We played in the sand and water and had a yummy BBQ.

The dad's took the older kid's in the canoe, they had so much fun.
They canoed right into the harbor by downtown Pentwater, where the mom's were waiting with the younger kiddos.

In the town we looked at a few fun shops, and the kids LOVED the candy shop.
Seth was in heaven!
He picked out a sucker, he was so excited about this sucker.
He was showing it to everyone then pointing to the candy shop.

When we got back, we had Fresh blueberry Pie, it was so YUMMY!!
They are always so nice to us, we are very grateful for their friendship.

That looks like the perfect 4th of July weekend. It's too bad that we don't live closer because I am sure our boys would have fun together.
Thanks for the adorable magnents! I love them!
