This year the 4th fell on a Wednesday and was crazy weird. I had a hard time remembering what day it was and if it was a weekend with working two days, off one day, working two days – I miss the days of extra floating holidays 🙁
Since Drew and I had to work on the 5th – we went to the Menomonee Falls parade and fireworks with some of my family on the 3rd. It was pretty hot and sweaty, but we toughed it out. As you can see Reese was a huge fan of the parade (or maybe next year…)
On the 4th – we celebrate my dad’s birthday with my family. We went over in the morning, had lunch, and created a slip n slide. Because that didn’t really help the 100 degree heat, we then headed over to our pool to cool off. We ended the night eating cake and playing a long game of Settlers of Catan.
I also got to see my best friend from high school, Morgan, because she was in town to visit family. It was great to catch up with her as always – I’m so glad her family moved back here!
