I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July! We had a lot of fun, and I, of course, took a lot of pictures.
The first few are pre-4th of July.... trying to get some good patriotic photos of the boys :)
Sam did his own hair special for the occasion...
On the morning of the 4th, we headed to Brad's parents cottage. Sam enjoyed some fishing and kayaking. He likes kayaking... but takes it seriously. No smiling allowed. :)
Then, the cousins had a fun time running around and playing inside.
Most of the photos ended up being blurry because these guys don't like to stop for photos...
We attempted some group shots... not terrible :)
All the Rush Cousins
It's too bad Sam was being a 3 year old and refused to get in this picture...
After lunch, we headed down to the playground for games and playing
More playing around the cottage
After that, we headed home to rest a bit before the parade in Fowlerville. The parade was okay... Mostly just politicians and tractors. Sam got some candy which he was thrilled about. The most exciting part was there was a Spider-Man in the parade. He must have noticed Sam's excitement to see him, because he came over and gave Sam a hug. Sam was so happy! He kept talking about it and couldn't believe Spider-Man was there. It happened so quick, so I didn't get a picture...
Relaxing after the parade
We came home, had some dinner, and got ready for bed. Sam stayed up late and we were able to drive to the front of our subdivision to see the fireworks.
It was a fun and busy 4th of July!
