4th of July Weekend

We had a great 4th of July weekend this year. Well, great except for the “I need to spend extra time working” part.  We still fit in a lot of fun.  We went to Latrobe to watch the parade.  It was a beautiful day and we luckily found a pretty good spot to sit.  Next year we’ll take chairs out ahead of time!


Free ice pops!  What a great idea.  I also had a snow cone that neither kid wanted to try.


Tristan liked the fire trucks.  He loved seeing tractors and even a few monster trucks.  He did a good job scooping up candy that people in the parade threw as well.  We didn’t stay for the whole parade because it was past lunch time for the kids.  We went to Eat N Park and had lunch before it got crowded.


That night Andy set off some fireworks in the backyard.  Tristan loved them but Delaney did not.  The loud noises were scary for her so we went inside and watched through the window.  I’m glad we didn’t make an effort to go see community fireworks this year, it probably would have been a disaster.


We had some friends over to play on Saturday and I think everyone had a great time.  Pictures are on Facebook.

We also harvested our first sweet banana pepper.  Anyone have ideas on what to do with them?  We are soon going to have a lot.

    Stuffed banana peppers are my favorite – not sure if they would be too spicy for the kiddos. Great pics!
