4th of July
For the 4th of July our neighbors asked us over for a barbecue with her cute family. We had fantastic ribs, potato salad, watermelon, and brownies. It was really fun for everyone. The kids played with the neighbors and rode their bikes around the street. Then we started a water fight, most of the adults also joined in on the fun. It was a great day.
Some of the highlights was that Evie started to ride her bike without any assistance and without her training wheels. She is very proud of herself.
The older kids found a plum tree and Adele was able to store some in the fridge in the garage. I have spent a week cleaning plum juice out of the garage and off the floor where the kids spit out their pits. Pretty nasty if you ask me.
The kids watched the fireworks that my neighbors bought and successfully stayed up until 9:30 with minimal meltdowns. They loved the fireworks even the loud ones. Delsa surprised me and slept through the whole time. It was so pretty.
