4th of July Weekend

We kicked off our 4th of July weekend on Friday night in Kemah. We ate outside at the aquarium and watched the fireworks.

Just the 3 of us
Kane and his Lulu
The next morning we got up bright and early and headed to Lulu's for the annual Greenwood Kings parade. She lives right off of the parade street so we walked to the end of her block and watched!

We decorated his wagon so we would fit right in!

I found him a firecracker lollipop a couple months ago but the red part broke during our move.

waving hi to the kids passing by!

After the parade we went to the church carnival and Kane got his very first snow cone.

4th of July morning we got dressed and went to the Racquet Club to go swimming and eat lunch. I ate my little heart out... finishing a great meal with 2 desserts Note to self, don't eat like a fat cow right before you jump in the pool. You don't want to be mistaken for a beached whale.
Kane and I made this shirt right before we moved. The "stars" are his fingerprints.

Lots of sunblock for my pale baby!
We came home and had turkey burgers, potatoes and tea!
I made candy skewers for my nieces a few days ago but I never got to see them, so we enjoyed them as a little snack! Too bad half of the candies fell off.
For our dessert I made us mini s'more pies. Below are the instructions to make your own!
I saw these the other day at the store and knew instantly what I would use them for.

Layer marshmallows and chocolate chips inside each bowl and bake for 8 minutes at 325. They are delicious!
I hope you had a wonderful 4th!
