family, food and fun on the fourth!

We started our July 4th last night in the front yard watching our HOA's annual fireworks show!

After a late night outside and a good nights sleep;

we started the day with a yummy brunch.

After we ate the kids were ready to swim for a bit.

Don't you get hungry for ice cream when you swim?

We took off on a trip to Kroger for a few last minute items for our dinner.

Low and behold Blue Bell was on sale!

Layla picked out this flavor and it is amazing.  It is the best ice-cream I have had in YEARS!
In case you can't tell it is called Christmas Cookies in July.  It has pieces of cookies, sprinkles and green icing and of course vanilla ice-cream.  Oh my!

It was the highlight of our day!

The kids loved it so much they were licking their bowls.

We played outside all afternoon in the pool.  Gary and I even got in and splashed around to cool off.  It was a great way to spend our 4th of July.  I just love my little family!

Happy Fourth of July 2012!

Sounds like the perfect holiday...especially with all that ice cream:) I didn't see the in July part and I was wondering why there was Christmas ice cream in the summer!
