Red, White and Blue!

Hello and Happy day after the 4th of July! I hope everyone enjoyed a fun filled holiday.

We stuck around in town this year since I had to work Monday and come back to work again on Wednesday, but we made the best of our 24 hours of freedom in the middle of the week.

The day started off gloriously when Kevin let me sleep in till 8:30 (and yes 8:30 is sleeping in #adulting). Once I was up, we dressed Lincoln for the splash pad and walked over to the park to enjoy some fun in the sun before the day got too hot. While tentative at first, he ended up loving the splash pad and spent a good hour running in and out of the water and trying to step on the water holes only to be squirted (repeatedly) in the face haha!

After the park, we headed back home for lunch, crossed of some household "to-do's" and a nap before heading back out for our evening 4th of July plans!

This year, we met up with some good friends to watch the fireworks from their apartment in Kendall Yards. Olmstead Park had a band and food trucks set up as well so we walked down there for some more park time play and dinner. We headed home before the band started to play, but there was plenty of festive fun including holiday ice cream sandwiches to enjoy before we settled in for the firework show put on in downtown.

Once the 15 minute show was over, we packed up as quickly as we could and headed home to go to bed with a busy work/school week ahead of us.

It was fun to stay local this year (although I think we'll try and hit up the island next year!) and see the big fireworks show put on by the city.

Happy Independence Day!!
