July 4th (in review)

We had a great day yesterday...did a little shopping for some new wicker furniture for our back patio.  Pat is covering part of the patio...and we sold our hot we were off in search of some furniture.

We then headed to a pool party in our neighborhood and finally to downtown Loveland for the parade, concert and fireworks.  Have to say the band was pretty bad, but it put absolutely no damper on our plans!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day!  Happy 4th!

The "big boys", Johnny, Liam, Ryan and Trevor...too cool to watch the parade were off to play king of the mountain on a big dirt pile.  Got them to turn around and give me a smile...

My next door neighbor and dear friend, Danielle, with her oldest son, Matthew...he's getting so tall!
Olivia singing in the parade with the Loveland Stage Company.
Emma, chilling on the stage, listening to the band...she ran away from me right after this picture...! I love those pigtails!
Pat watching the kids play...they all had beach balls that they were having a ball kicking around.
Hey brown eyes...Jonathon enjoying is sno cone! And my toothless guy, Collin, enjoying his too!
Marcel, taking a breather on my lap...
A little blurry...but pure joy...I love this picture!  Collin having fun kicking beach balls!
Olivia and Jayna relaxing on the blanket...
Pat and Mark....chatting as the kids run around and wishing Pat's root beer was a real beer!
Checking out the pre fireworks...there were mini hot air balloons being sent up in the air.
The boys dancing to "Play Some Funky Music White Boy..."
Marcel catching a little cuddle time with daddy...
 Happy Fourth!

Beautiful pictures! It looks like you guys had a blast! We could only watch the fireworks on TV because our little one had to go to bed :)

Great photos, looks like it was a great day/night. Now I can't get the tune of Play that Funky Music out of my head - love that song.
