We had another successful Fourth of July celebration this year, and Ava's first.
We started with an early morning breakfast at the church.
AJ participated in the hula-hooping contest.
The girls played some Glee Karaoke on the WII...
while I made some homemade peach ice cream.
We cooled off in the pool for a bit. Mom's good for snuggling in the towels,
but when it comes to playing in the water, everyone wants dad. Can't say I blame them.
Ava LOVED the fireworks. She kept squealing and grinning and pointing every time one would go off. I'm still kicking myself for not bringing my good camera so I could take better shots of her - it was so cute. But I'll have to settle for my trusty iphone pics.
We were all tired by the end of the day, I think AJ more than the rest. She lasted about 10 minutes in the car on the way home.
This was her the next morning. Successful holiday indeed!
