Long 4th of July Weekend

We had just the best time as a family this weekend.
It was a long one.
Because of Zach's work schedule we had Wed- Sunday as a family and it ROCKED!!!!

We spend lots of time outside, playing in the pool, swinging, blowing bubbles, being silly and just having fun!

On Friday we went to the Royals game and saw the amazing fireworks. Both kids loved it!! Isaac was so sad when they were over.

(horrible pic, I know- I should have figured out how to do night setting before we got there)

I got to thinking during the display about how blessed we are that loud explosions over our head are fun & entertaining for us. I'm sure there are way too many people in the world that have a very different reaction- one of fear and confusion. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to care for your children and keep them safe in an environment like that. Once again amazed at our many blessings here in the USA!!!

On the 4th we had a fun lunch with the extended Taylor family. Last year Isaac was learned about corn on the cob & watermelon on the 4th- this year Brooklyn learned about those same foods & Isaac moved onto learning how to tear up a chicken wing.

Hope you had an equally fun & enjoyable 4th celebrating our independence!
