This was a great fourth of July.
It started out with a lake trip…in the rain.
We didn’t plan for it to be in the rain, but it was.
Luckily the water was warm and the rain eased up on us for a while so we could enjoy a couple of hours in the water.
(see those dark, stormy clouds…!)
After the lake, we headed back to my parent’s house where the adults rested, the kiddos swam in the pool, and eventually we barbequed and set off some fireworks.
(TJ’s marinated hot dogs are my favorite…and this time, we spiral cut them so they were extra cool!)
(so grateful that fireworks are legal in Gilbert now…we don’t have to fight the crowds to see them!)
Easy, low-key, relaxing, fun.
The perfect fourth of July!
