Sunday Snapshot - Happy Independance Day!

We had no plans this day. We usually do, but not this year. We planned nothing but we had fun.

We started the day at Church where we sang God Bless America and The Star Spangled Banner. What a great way to start your 4th of July!

Next was a trip to the pool in the pick up truck.

My Dad's old pick up truck!

Then there were handstands

and piggy backs from big brothers

as well as lots of flying acrobats!!

The kids were getting along - whoo hoo - and everyone was having fun.


My poor little Lizzie fell

No worries though,

Cinnamon Graham Crackers make it all better:)

What???? You never heard of the cinnamon graham cracker bandaid??? Works every time!

Next up...

Brownie Ice Cream Sundae's

on the porch


Towels hanging to dry on the front porch is a sure sign of summer round here and they came in handy after those sundae's!!!

The day ended with sidewalk chalk portraits

froggy finds

and fireworks from the neighborhood dock!

Sorry the picture of the fireworks is so bad but we were VERY far away. It was great though! From the dock we were able to see all 5 fireworks displays around town. They may have been far away BUT, we weren't in a mob of people either, just the young couple we ran off after all 5 of our little but LOUD crew ran down the dock!!! Sorry guys, but that is sometimes how you end up with 5 loud little people, so you can thank us later!! Hehe!!!


If we had nothing planned for the 4th of July, then why am I so tired???

Happy 4th of July!! To check out more Sunday Snapshots go here,
