Happy Fourth of July

We're home, unpacked and the laundry is going!
We had a wonderful week at the beach. I have lots of pictures to share of our fun week.
I'll start off with the Fourth of July.
On Friday our neighbors the Osbornes and Adams came down to join us for the weekend.
Saturday morning started with our pancake breakfast compliments of Chef Jim.
After breakfast everyone dressed in their red, white, and blue.
Tessa's red Van's came in handy for the holiday.

The kids' put on some patriotic tattoos for the occasion too!

We lined the street with our chairs to enjoy the Manzanita parade!

I think my favorite part of the parade every year is the HUGE American Flag.

After the parade we went back for a barbeque at the house.

After dinner we headed down to the beach for the evening and fireworks!!

Despite the signs and the warnings there were TONS of illegal fireworks on the beach. We had quite a show right next door and over the top of our heads!

We were one of about 200 fires on the beach - and there was a LOT of smoke!

We roasted hot dogs and made s'mores over the fire.

After dinner we did some of our own fireworks while we waited for the big show to start.

We were only able to see about half the fireworks show because a fog rolled in and the fireworks disappeared! We had enough illegal ones going off right next to use though that we don't feel like we missed anything!

Happy Fourth of July!!
