We had a Fourth of July full of family and friends. And alliteration. The whole big Fitzgerald clan was in town for our annual summer get-together.
We were blessed with a gorgeous beach day on Friday (and a day off of work! even better!)
We are lucky to see our nieces and nephews as often as we do, despite the distance.
July 3rd is a big day in the family so we had a celebratory dinner out. We celebrated 11 years of marriage for Mark and Steph. I hate that I didn’t know them when they got married! I would have loved to be there.
And Millie’s birthday! I believe it was your 29th, right, Mil?
The Fourth wasn’t beach weather (insert sad faces here). But Uncle Scott still got some good ol’ fashioned American football time in with Liam.
Liam picked up the football after breakfast and said, “Who wants to play football with me?” I think Scott walked away from me mid-sentence.
He’s not even four years old! Look at him go. Scott was so proud he nearly burst.
We spent the afternoon at the track. It’s outside, you can bring your own food/drink and the kids can run around. I highly recommend it.
Winning ticket, y’all!
We ended the weekend with a huge cookout. There was limbo, a pinata and a dance party.
And my favorite – SPARKLERS! Most of the kids were in bed so I asked the adults to humor me. While I was spinning and dancing, I turned around to see this. A line of people standing. Just standing!
Oh well. Not everyone can have my flair! 🙂
A big thank you to our family for making the trek to Jersey and making our Fourth festive!
