On Tuesday afternoon we took our annual trip up to Gowrie to celebrate the 4th. We had a great time despite the heat. :-) On Tuesday we mostly relaxed, the boys played in the pool outside, ate some yummy food, got to visit with Carl and Lisa and then Andy headed out to see some friends and go to the street dance. I stayed home with the boys.
Andy and I got up early to get ready for the 5K. It was smokin' hot but we did it and did pretty well...we both got 2nd in our age groups. Andy really improved his time from last year...he did awesome! My time was of course slower than last year but I was happy overall...since it was my first race post-baby. Then we showered up and headed up to the parade. Brady LOVED waving to all the floats and getting as much candy as he could. He raked in a huge haul! Mason was so good, despite the heat, he slept most of the time and only stirred when the sirens went off but never did wake up...Amen!
We then headed back to the house to cool off and have some lunch. After a yummy lunch and some more catching up, it was time for me to head home as I had to work on Thursday. Andy stayed up with both boys for the night. They hit up the carnival and had a ton of fun! Later that night they had a fire and did Smores and watched some fireworks. It was another great 4th...enjoy the pics below!
