Yet another fantastic 4th of July celebration in Quechee, with lots of family present and kids who are so big that they were able to just go along with their cousins and check in now and then. A whole new world–I guess this really is a day of independence!
That is, until Em wanted to stand in line for a half hour to get a balloon animal and her face painted. Big cousins aren’t waiting around for that! So I waited in the never-ending face painting line while she stood in the balloon animal line and got herself a giraffe, Little H a dog, and big brother a balloon sword.
We still had a while to wait, but it was worth it. The make-up artist was so impressed with Em and her ability to sit still. Little did she know my girl takes make-up very seriously.
We played games, stood in more lines, won prizes, had a few drinks, ate ice cream, had lots of laughs and waited for the sun to go down.
All three of our kids loved the fireworks. Little H kept pointing to the sky and saying, “Pop!” and signing “more!” One of my favorite summer memories every year.
Such a fantastic 4th of July celebration! My favorite since moving here!
