6th annual 4th of July block party

We started out the 4th of July holiday hanging out with our neighbors!

Our neighbors throw a fun party with a water slide, tons of food and lots of patriotic activities.  It's sad when the water slide is almost taller than your home...heehee!

We get permission from the city to block off our street to thru traffic for the night.  

Layla was more than happy to cool off in the water slide.

There was a long line to the water slide all afternoon and into the night.  See Hayden sliding down?!

We invited some friends of ours who don't live on our block.  Layla was so excited to her little best friends.  She has been out of town, so the reunion was so sweet!  Layla was so happy to see her.

The kids had so much fun riding their scooters and bikes.

Hayden (sporting his patriotic necklace) was in hog heaven riding his tricycle in the middle of the street. 

Layla loved having her hair sprayed with blue hairspray!

The girls showing off their patriotic hair :)

Cuties...taking a break!

Popsicle cheers!

They were standing near the water slide in hopes of getting splashed. 

I took this picture to show off the glow stick anklets and necklaces, but you can't see them :(

Hayden and Daddy...I totally cut Gary's head off in this picture.  It was so dark...I couldn't see!


Hayden loved the sparklers...Layla didn't love them.  Can you tell?  haha!

We can't wait to celebrate more as the weekend goes on.  Fireworks are tonight...right in our backyard!!  We can't wait to see them!

It looks like y'alls neighborhood is a lot like ours. We're always hanging out with our neighbors & we have a big crawfish boil in April every year.
