They were trying to wait up for the fireworks!!
Who knew what the end result would be for the weekend!?!? A Mohawk!
There was the BIG Children's Parade Float where we managed to place what I think is 4-5 years in a row... this year squeaking out a 1st place victory! After the Children's Parade, was the BIG ADULT PARADE! This was the first time the Ernst Family has entered this... (complete with our 1949 John Deer pulling us all!) We were blown away at how great Carter was ALL morning long in the extreme hot Texas weather! Although he was perfectly behaved, he was exhausted after having thrown out over 85 pounds of candy to the crowds!
These 2, Ainsley and Addie, were deep in conversation...
Some of my favorite time each afternoon was when the ENTIRE family was out on the dock and in the water! Carter took a while to warm up to the idea of swimming in the lake but in stepped the magical Julie and had him splashing in no time!
The lake on July 4th is like an ocean from 10 - 5PM, so the kids loved their early morning rides. Addie would just giggle and giggle!
