Red, White and Blue

The 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays so having it over a 3 day weekend made it even more magical. The party started on Saturday night when we watched the fireworks from my parents yard.

Sunday evening everyone went on the annual scooter ride. Family, friends and even strangers gather on their scooters and motorcycles, drive down University Avenue and throw candy at all the campers.

Following tradition we had out sleepover at the clubhouse. You still get all the excitement and noise from the University campers but get to sleep in a cozy bed. We enjoyed patriotic popcorn and watched Alice in Wonderland. Karson thought it was an adventure of a lifetime; he packed 3 days worth of clothes and kept screaming "woo hoo party with no mom and dad!".

Monday morning we got up bright and early to watch the parade.

After the parade we had all the Roney's over for swimming, games, good company and delicious food.

Mik and his patriotic "sleeve".....

Kyler got creative with his tattooing.

Then it was off to the Smith's for a little rain and an amazing firework show.
