Ah! Well, ’tis that time of year to share one of my VERY favorite days in McKinney with you!!
Every year, my family LOVES spending July 4th here in McKinney. From the parade in the morning to the fireworks at night, it’s just a fun-filled day from start to finish. Here are some pics from our July 4th…
We arrived!! I love McKinney for so many reasons, but one of the biggest is that it’s (in my opinion) the perfect combination of big city and small town all wrapped into one. Our historic town square is always the place to be, but on July 4th? It’s simply magical!
When you show up to the parade twinning with your bestie 🙂 .
Speaking of besties…how big are these two girls?! I cannot believe they’re about to be in FIFTH GRADE!!
July 4th is always extra special because it marks the half year anniversary of being this girl’s mama!! Four and a half years ago, we met our sweet Ashby London! If you missed my post about it, you can see it HERE.
Madeley had her flag and her front row spot! She was ready for the parade!
Did you know that 17 years ago on this day, I met Andrew Shull for the very first time? 🙂
There are just so many friends who meet us every year on the square! Please note, Karla brought a huge bag filled with patriotic earrings for us to have. Wasn’t that sweet?! She said she got them HERE.
If you know Andrea and myself then you know this…we rocked that parade HARD…and then the very next morning, we started texting each other about when the Pottery Barn fall catalog would be out. Bahahaha! We are two peas in a pod! We love you July 4th…but we love you more fall 🙂 .
Oh hey there, Meagan!
Madeley is…um, a sweater. Are any of you or your kids? She sweats a lot. She’s suuuuuuper adorable even sweaty 😉 .
I love this community so much!! We have gotten to know and love so many families over the last 13 years that we’ve lived here.
My beautiful Ashby!
These two girls are so sweet together!
After the parade, we always grab lunch together. Love this family of mine!
…we get ready for our swim party!! We bought this float just for the occasion 🙂 .
The Slaughters came over for our annual framily swim party, and as always, we had the BEST time! We swam, we rented a bounce house, we grilled fajitas for dinner…fantastic!
That night, we headed to the fireworks! We always love McKinney’s Red, White and BOOM!
And as always, we finish off our night at 11:00 PM at In-N-Out Burger. Somehow, that became our tradition…and we love it 🙂 .
I hope you all had a fun FOURTH too!! Don’t forget, tomorrow is…
