4th of July!

Hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July.  It kind of stunk that it was in the middle of the week because Daddy had to go to work today.  Definitely feels like Monday and not Thursday!  We had a great 4th of July here in Omaha.  Layla said that her first holiday wasn't too shabby either.  Here are some pictures from our 4th of July:
Our 4th actually kind of started on the 3rd.  We went to the base fireworks and Brady got his first taste of staying up late and fireworks. He enjoyed both. Here's Daddy with his babies.

The next morning (way too early after our later night of fireworks) we participated in the nearby city of Ralston's Independence Day Fun Run/Walk.  Their city was turning 100 so it was kind of neat. We went through the hilly neighborhoods and the residents were so cute. A lot of them were outside cheering us on and many had their hoses out to hose us down since it was a crisp 90 degrees at 8 am! One guy even played his bagpipes for us! We mainly walked (that stroller is HEAVY!) but ran a little too.  I think we were one of the first strollers to finish, well at least that's what we tell ourselves! :)

And we're off!

The kids are thrilled. Mainly tired, but thrilled I'm sure!

The last stretch!

We're going so fast!

And Brady is off!

Almost there buddy, almost there!

Cheering Brady on to finish the race

And he did it! Haha!

 Whew! That last block he ran was rough!

Time to cool down with some water.  The kids are exhausted.

Popsicle mommy?

This picture makes me laugh with Layla smiling in her sleep

The fastest runner in the race (technically she finished first out of our family).

Of course we had to cool down with the fire fighter!

Then it was home we went to color 4th of July coloring pages.

And eat star shaped sandwiches of course

Stars are the best! Bite mommy?

Then we had to take a little snooze

And Layla had to take some pictures

My little smiley girl!

And Brady played with a can of green beans.

Took about 10 tries and this was the best picture we got.  Oh well at least Brady is looking at the camera!

Then we went to a friends house for a bbq and fireworks. Here's our family on the 4th.

Brady and his friend Judah waving the American flag. Brady's is moving too fast to see.

There we go!

So cute!

A little scared of the fireworks and a little warm but all in all a great 4th! :)
