4th of July
We had such a great 4th of July this year!! Our friends from STG came up to share in the fun and festivities!! We love having the Farnsworths come up for the 4th!! We had a dutch oven dinner at our house on the night of the 3rd, most my family came over. It was very yummy, after a few poppies and fireworks we headed to Aurora to see the firework show! I love watching their fireworks, they get better every year! The morning of the 4th we headed to the Richfield parade. Gavin loved being there with all the older kids and sharing in the excitement. I think Kurt enjoyed catching the candy as much as Gavin! We went to the Heath's for a BBQ and then to the Aurora park for the races! Gavin actually took 2nd in his race- he ran right into Grandmas arms! He was so cute with what he won! That evening we went to the Salina parade- it was extremely hot! Then off to my parents for another BBQ. We did our own fireworks at my moms that night. We had lots of fun. Gavin loved the poppies and sparklers. He thought they were great! He really enjoyed stepping on the poppies. We had such a great and long weekend! I just love the 4th- it is such a fun holiday for the kids- I love watching the excitement on their little faces. I am so glad that Susie and Nelson and their two great kids were able to be here with us! It is a tradition that I look forward to every year!!
