Happy Thursday, friends!!
Here’s a little look at life lately…
It’s a shame that Mia and Kensington don’t have a connection…
…such a shame 🙂 .
We loved every minute of Samuel’s Swamp party! Can we just talk about Isaiah’s face here for a minute?! Oh my gosh!!!
Smith and I were waiting for him to walk into his orthodontist appointment. It’s never dull with a ten year old boy. 😉
On Friday, Andrew and I both took off work and headed to the pool to swim. This was my one and only picture…but I think it adequately sums up our happy day 🙂 .
On July 4th…
…I was dressed and ready to go!! Isn’t my shirt cute?!
All dressed up in our swimsuits but first stop, the McKinney parade…drive thru edition!
Love my peeps so much.
In the car ready for the parade! Andrew and I met 18 years ago on July 4th 🙂 .
Okay, wow. The parade was insane. The city of McKinney tried really hard to do a parade where everyone stays in their car and then follows the route and drives by the floats on our historic square. Our mayor has a band and they were playing in the middle, so you got to drive by and see all of the festivities from inside your car. The only problem? Like 4 billion people wanted to drive by. We were at a standstill on our square because traffic was so bad. It took us one hour and we NEVER saw anything! Isn’t that nuts?! Who knew everyone would be there??? Hahaha! Not me!
We finally pulled over on the side and watched from a distance for a minute just so the entire hour wasn’t for nothing.
It was crazy…but made me proud that so many people want to be out and enjoy July Fourth even from their cars.
The second part of our day was spent swimming at the Slaughter’s house! There was even an inflatable slide into the pool that I couldn’t quit!
It’s always such a fun day together!
After pool time, we went across the street to the lake that separates our neighborhood from theirs…
…and we had the best time on paddle boards and in the canoe. Look at Ebby Lee and Kensington go!
And then there go Erika and me!
Such a fun time out there!
After that, it was time to head to…
…Ms. Jeni’s house for fireworks and fun!!
It was the perfect way to end our fun day!!
Sigh. Lots of laundry room living these days.
With all of the construction, it’s too loud/dirty/crazy, so they hang out with us in a room versus roaming around like they typically do. It’s going to be a long few months.
Don’t be scared. It’s just Madeley 😉 .
That’s a little life lately. See you guys tomorrow!! xx
