In the morning, we packed our bags for the day and headed to Leesburg to watch the annual 4th of July parade. This year Jacob wasn't IN the parade, but we still like to go see it.
Our favorite part of the parade is the fire department, of course. Lol After that we always wanna just leave, but then figure it would be rude, so we stay and watch the rest. haha
After the parade we went to my mom's house to swim at the pool while John and his friend, Adam, went to ride their motorcycles for a bit. It was so cool for the first time as long as I can remember that it was actually too cold at the pool, and then later after the sun went down it was really chilly!
After we swam and ate the goodies I had made the day before, we got showered and changed to head on over to Ida Lee to stake out our little spot for the fireworks that night. The boys, of course, wore their shirts we had made earlier in the week. You can see the post on how we made them here.
Then we met up with John and we all left to go over to Ida Lee for dinner, music and fireworks. Like, I said ... it was much chillier this past year then it has been in years past. By the time the sun went down, I was freezing! But, that didn't stop us from walking around and checking things out. And, just having fun, in general.
We hope everyone had a happy and SAFE Independence Day. Happy Birthday, America!!
