Fourth of July

As promised, I will be showing you highlights of all of our guest visits this summer that occupied all of my time.
We did so many things and had so much fun that the challenge for me in this series of posts is to just pick one thing to feature from each visit.

I will start off with our son and 2 little granddaughters because they were the first ones to come this summer.
Since they were here for the Fourth of July, I got busy making some fun shirts for the girls to wear.

The initials and the white stars actually glowed in the dark. I had enough vinyl leftover to make myself a shirt too.

The girls also made some special flip flops to match their shirts.

Our mall was having a big 4th of July celebration so we got all dressed up and joined the fun!

They had a free face painting station:

And we can’t go to the mall without getting in a little shopping. After all, we are girls, we were born to shop!

Before we left the mall, each of the girls got a balloon princess:

Legoland puts on a nice fireworks display over the lake.
Since The Capt. was eager to use his newly remodeled boat, we decided to watch the fireworks from the water this year.

I bought the girls a bunch of glow stuff from the dollar store to keep them busy until the fireworks started.

Wow, what a fantastic view we had, we were right under the fireworks and it was amazing ( and Legoland spared no expense!).

We really enjoyed our time with the girls!
