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!
