Independence Day

With all of the grandparents in town for Reed's baptism tomorrow, we had an exceptionally fun Fourth of July. Unfortunately, rain made for quite a soggy day, so we spent much of the day inside. Thankfully it subsided when it was time to head to the park for the fireworks. We played all morning, grilled burgers for lunch, enjoyed rainy day naps, and then headed to Godfathers for dinner (you know, the great American meal: PIZZA!) before going to the park. What a great day to spend with family!

Family feast at Godfathers.

The people sitting at the next table were enjoying the holiday with cake. They had extra, so they shared a piece with Drew.

Party in the park!

The boys in their Fourth of July best.

"Hey Mom, this is F-U-N!"

Cute, sure, but kind of irritating having to tell him to get out of the way all the time so he doesn't get knocked out with those balls!

A better game for a 2 year old.

Trying to pose like his dad. So funny!

Enjoying the fireworks (that's Reed underneath the blue hoodie).

If anyone missed seeing fireworks, enjoy your own personal slide show here! Pekin put on a GREAT show!
