A fun and festive 4th!

It was a celebration of the 4th and a birthday for my family this weekend!!  On Saturday we all gathered at my sister Meghan's house for the holiday and a birthday party for my niece, Amy who will be 6 on Thursday.  It's wasn't the nicest day weather-wise.  It was cloudy in the morning, then poured rain on us for awhile!  But there was a break in the weather around 5 and then it was clear for the rest of the night!  Which was good for the fireworks.    It was a fun day!  Kids don't mind the clouds and rain when there's a pool involved.  Only Aunt Katie minds...hahahaha.  So I went inside and missed the biggest commotion of the day!!  The boys pushed Poppy in the pool.  And his phone was in his pocket!!!  So you can just imagine how that went.  The phone is currently sitting in rice and everyone's fingers are crossed!

It was a day filled with family, fun, yummy food, delicious cake and plenty of drinks to keep the party going all night long!  When the parties are at my sister Meghan's house, they always seem to go the longest!  I ended up staying over and got to get a few hours of sun before heading home. Because, of course, today (Sunday) was beautiful!!

A few pictures of our favorite moments!  Most of these are courtesy of my mom!  She's the resident photographer and always has her pictures emailed within hours of our parties.

Uncle Tony (Amy's Dad) always makes the cake...last year it was a 5, and she requested a 6 again this year.  Billy helped with the M&M's

Pool Fun!

Don't try this at home!!

Don't worry...I didn't wear this headband all day!  Just for fun!!

Only Anthony goes to the Ice Cream Supply Store and stocks up for the summer!!  I had a chipwich-my fave!!


And this last one is just for fun because my mom always does this...she's not at the Macy's Fireworks Spectacular, but she pretends she is by taking pictures of the TV!!!  HAHAHAHAHA

My Aunt, Uncle and cousin actually left the party early to really go watch them live...LUCKY!!

The night always ends with a fire in the fire pit & S'MORES!

All in all a successful Independence Day!  I hope you and yours enjoyed the day as well!!  

And what a way to end this 4th of July Weekend!!  Team USA wins the World Cup!!  Woo Hoo!!  Go Girls!!

Have a great week!
