Happy Birthday America!

We started celebrating the 4th with a little pre-party cake on Thursday night complete with candles (football themed, of course) and singing of "Happy Birthday to America."  Tyler was a sucker at the grocery store with Max when he saw the red, white, and blue cake.

The morning of the 4th, the first words out of Max's mouth was "you are both here." It felt like a little stab in the heart but made me really want to spend some good quality family time together over the three day weekend putting all errands aside. We got the kiddos dressed in their patriotic gear and headed to Highland Park for the parade/festival. Max and Mommy went to the parade the previous year and had a blast so it was a must-do again this year. 
Not even a parade will interrupt

Following the festival we went home for a group/family nap. After we were rested, Tyler had a special treat in store for Max ... a slipping slide. Tyler was right that Max was ready.  

Max loved it!

Camille did not!

We hope you had as great of a 4th as we did.
