We spent 4th of July in Abilene for the first time in several years. It was a very short trip but we had so much fun. We started the day really early so we could be down there for the events in the park that morning. The boys both did the pedal pull. This was their first time to ever do it. They both did great. Jackson took 2nd place in his age group. He was especially excited about his trophy.
After that we headed over to enter these two beauties in the baby contest
These two are such great buddies
Neither one cared too much for the pageant scene and didn't show any personality to the judges and so they both went home with only their flags (although I am pretty sure the flags were the best part to these two!) They were definately the two cutest ones there but oh well! The kids ate some popsicles, watched some sand volleyball, and had a waterballoon toss which actually turned into a waterballoon fight by the end. We then headed back to Annie's for the day to bbq and just hang out. It was such an enjoyable time. The kids had so much fun with their cousins. They played so hard in the heat all day. That night we went back into town for the fireworks show.
There was lots of screaming, clapping and cheering for the fireworks
This is how the girls took in the fireworks
It was a perfect day. I am so lucky to be able to spend my birthday with the people I love most.
