4th of July 2015

Drew’s sister, brother-in-law, dad and nephew Augie came to visit for his birthday and the 4th of July. It was Augie’s and Finn’s first 4th and our first time meeting Augie. The boys are just 2 months apart and already fast friends!

Augie!

Augie’s hand on Finn’s thigh kills me.

Meeting Augie

We walked to the neighborhood pool for Finn’s first swim.

The boys swimming

The water was a bit cool that morning. I’d say Finn didn’t like it or dislike it.

But he was happy to dry off and relax.

After swimming

We went to the local coffeehouse/brewhouse on Drew’s birthday.

On the 4th, I tried to get pictues of my kiddos holding flags, but they were too distracted by them to look at the camera. Harper tried to get Finn to wave his flag.

What a fun weekend with family!

fourth of july trip to missouri

We made our way back to Missouri again for the 4th of July this year to see lots of Drew’s family. We basically replicated our trip from last year – except this year Harper was running around and playing and swinging. Lots of swinging.

She swung with Great Grandma and ran around.

Harper loved playing at Uncle Don and Aunt Deb’s with Devyn and Audrey – 2 of the many second cousins that are closest to her age.

On the 4th, we went to a party at Drew’s cousin’s house where we had some awesome cousin-made barbeque! All Harper wanted to do the whole evening was swing, swing, swing.
