We joined my sister and her family for a morning of fun with a parade, sack races, three-legged races, and of course food!
Paul even had a festive outfit for the occasion!
Paul also competed in a race for the 0-2 year olds. He didn't win (shocking, right?!?) but he had a good time. :)
Nat joined in on the sack race, which was fun to watch. What a great way to spend the morning!
In the afternoon we had some family and friends over for a picnic. 30+ people definitely wouldn't fit into our apartment, so we opted for the great outdoors and was happy to see the weather cooperate. :)
We had a missionary family in all week so we had them over for the picnic too. The missionary entertained all the kids with balloon animals...
... including Paul!
Of course we finished the day with a few games of volleyball - my first time playing in two years! What fun. :)
Most everyone else went to see fireworks, but we were too tired. We're hoping to see some Saturday night.
What a wonderful 4th of July. I'm sure next year won't be anything like this year. I'm so glad we were able to spend time with lots of dear people!
