4th of July, iPhone version

The 4th of July was on a Saturday this year, so I had high expectations for a super fun weekend! Don't get me wrong....we had a great time, but it didn't go quite as planned. 

Seth was off on Friday so I had high hopes for spending the day doing fun things with him. Adelyn had attended an awesome girl scout camp all week that got cancelled due to the morning thunderstorms and rain all day long. She was crushed (I'm talking tears and a meltdown). We had plans to go out on the lake with friends, which also got cancelled. Then, Seth's car wouldn't start so he spent the majority of the day working on it. 

So....the kids and I baked a cake. Everytime we bake, they feel the need for Lowe's aprons and safety goggles. 

How cute is this cake topper? 

We grilled out salmon on a cedar plank that night. It was DELICIOUS! Highly recommend this marinade that I found on Pinterest. 

The kids are still loving their 4 wheelers (*sweet moment*)

We went to see the Cumming fireworks at 9:30. The kids played with glow in the dark toys while we waited. 

We woke up on the 4th to MORE RAIN! We pressed on and went to the parade and it didn't rain for the entire parade. Yay! The kids had a great time riding the steam engine and throwing candy to the crowds. 

After the parade (and a family nap....ahh!), we went to a friend's house to swim in the lake off their dock and in their pool. They also grilled out and shot off fireworks. We had an awesome time!

Happy birthday, America!
