It couldn’t have been a better 4th of July weekend. The weather was amazing, there was a lot to do, and plenty of fireworks all around.
The weekend started with a parade! Our neighborhood put together an impromptu parade for all the children. So, Carter and 50 of his closest friends road their decorated vehicles down the bike path. Red white and blue was everywhere and spectators enjoyed watching the children.
Later that afternoon, we climbed to the top of the Four Lakes ski hill and watched the balloons lift off at eye of the skies.
In the evening, Emery stayed home with Grandma and Grandpa Stubler, while Julie, Carter, and I went to the the Fireworks in Bolingbrook. For the first time, Carter stayed awake through the entire show. To keep us busy before the show started, we brought homemade popcorn, a soccer ball, and Carter’s glow flag from Grandma and Grandpa Wassmer.
Oh, and while we were celebrating America’s birthday, we also celebrated Carter’s stuffed puppy’s, named Puppy, birthday. So, at dinner, we sang Happy Birthday to him. Carter also picked out a new lego set for him. Nice try, Carter! No birthday presents for puppy!
