Our 4th of July was celebrated on the 3rd
Why was that?
The city we live in celebrates the 4th on the 3rd....
I really have no clue as to why they do this
It has always been like this....I've never asked
So on the 3rd, we ventured over to the central location of the celebration
It was a very wet weekend....due to the tropical depression off the west coast
The city had asked the Color Guard team to present the colors before fireworks that evening
So if it wasn't for them performing we would have stayed home
Here we are finding a dry place to sit....
So......after a few sprinkles of rain from time to time
we finally settled down shared a nice dinner
Donnie grabbed some of his funny hats for the kids to wear
(i'm so glad he decided to leave his uncle sam costume at home...yikes)
Ana had a blast trying these hats on....isn't she so cute! :)
We waited for the evening to begin
I loved the time spent chatting and watching the kids run and play
As the jazz tunes resonated from the live band on stage,
Donnie played with the kids with this pool inflate
I had no clue he brought this
I said "honey are you planning on swimming out here?"
He thinks of the wackiest ways to entertain our children
Since he couldn't find the football....this came into use
The older kids were dressed for their performance
Donnie came prepared to catch them in action
Yes...I was a good sport and lounged on the wet grass since I forgot to bring lawn chairs
I did bring a blanket that came in handy to keep us "dry" during the torrential down pour
We look dry don't we?
As the sun went down and before the rain,
the children played with these light up star necklaces
the Color Guard stayed dry under the shelter...good thing!
And finally..... after about an hour of postponing the fireworks
because of the rain
We all enjoyed our happy and wet 3rd or rather "4th of July"
Here is a sneak peek of my next post....
