For the 4th, we went to the Boston's annual party.
We started out by going to the parade at the end of their block.
These two rode in style!
Aubry, Kyri, and Noah and Avery Connelly
Tess was thrilled to get candy from the pararde!
Three cuties watching
Her first sucker...mmm!!
Uncle B screened the candy for the older two.

After the parade, we headed back to Mr. and Mrs. Boston's house. It was 100 degrees that day, so the kids got started with the water activities right away.
We all went together to purchase this fun bounce house. Kyri, Tessa, and Aubry were really timid about it at first. The bigger kids at the party jumped right in, though.
Our girls preferred the safe, familiar baby pool.
But eventually, our girls gave it a try.
And they LOVED IT!
Even Tess tried out the slide a few times!
We got home from the party around 5:30, and we were all hot and tired. Tessa and Kyle took a nap, but Kyri was too excited about going to see the fireworks to nap. She made it until about 8:00. I made the mistake of leaving her alone on the living room couch for a few minutes, and when I came back, she was snoring. I even tried to wake her up and told her it was time to go see the fireworks. She shook her head and said she wanted to go to bed instead. (I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed!)
This little firecracker was wide awake, though!
