This 4th of July, we celebrated the event in our neighborhood with an old fashioned bike and stroller parade. This was followed by a community-wide celebration, complete with a color guard, a medal of honor recipient, an adorable 11 year-old singing the national anthem and refreshments for all. It was a lot of fun and the kids were great!
Below is a photo of Grace enjoying the big band music being played over the PA. She was dancing to the beat and grinning the entire time.
Afterwards, we introduced Grace and Dylan to water sports. Specifically, maxing and relaxing at poolside. Clearly, Dylan has this mastered already.
On Saturday, we joined our friends the Machs and Orsis at their place on Crystal Beach, where Dylan and Grace got their first introduction to the ocean (Gulf of Mexico).
It was a terrific weekend for the entire family!
