Fourth of July Weekend celebrations are in full swing which means we’re squeezing all of the Red, White + Blue love that we can over the next few days. And we’re looking at some phenomenal weather in our forecast (highs in the 90s + lows in the 50s) so I couldn’t possibly be happier about spending most of our time over the next few days poolside. Come July 4th, our big plans (wink, wink) are to be a part of our neighborhood’s bike parade + barbecue… then a dip in the pool. This is our third year to celebrate along side these neighbors of ours + I think it’s great that we don’t have to travel to make the day special.

This year’s parade will be a new experience for the kids because they will be participants, not just spectators. So earlier today, I took the kids into town to grab some inexpensive decor for their bikes + helmets. Mostly they just told us what to do while Brad + I did the decorating.Duct Tape for the win.

I also took the kids around the neighborhood, waiting for the just right moment when the wind would blow + the American Flag would wave + the kids would be all happy + smiling right at my camera lens. Yeah, that didn’t really happen. The biggest smiles came when they would run + attack me. I have an elbow scratch as proof of their assault. But some pretty sweet moments happened in-between the crazy ones. The kiss. The wipe off. The re-kiss. =) So fun!

If you’ve stopped by today, I hope you’re here for the #StarSpangledKids Link-up Party!My friend, Liz, asked if I would be one of her co-hosts for her blog link-up party this year + I was so thrilled and immediately replied YES!
