What A Wonderful Day!

We had a WONDERFUL 4th of July! The parade was great, the girls both marched with the Junior High band, I walked with them as a chaperone, and my husband and my sister-in-law (my husband's sister) watched the parade. Afterwards, we came home and painted the girls' rooms. It took us the rest of the day all the way up to when we left to watch the fireworks at the main park. It was a lot of work, it was exhausting, but it was well worth the effort, because the painting is done! My sister-in-law came over for a day of fun, and instead, we put her to work! She said she didn't mind, thank goodness! She said she actually had fun helping us paint!


Here we are at the main park waiting for the fireworks to start. We were all so sweaty from painting!! Here are some firework photos for you to enjoy! I was impressed with how well these photos turned out!





Thanks for stopping by!

Sounds like you had a great time, even painting. We spent our 4th recooping from the 3rd. Our parade and fireworks were on the 3rd and the fireworks were right across the street from my house so we had a huge crowd over. It was a blast!!
I really love your girlfriend card. How cute!!
