This past weekend we managed to cram in almost every single tradition summer/4th of July thing you could do, and it was AWESOME.
We started off Thursday morning with a little silly
After work we took the kids to the Crystal Lake Lakeside Fest. Blake rode on all the rides, and even wanted to go on the rides he was too short for. He ran into his friend Mason and the two of them went crazy on the rides. We probably spent a million dollars in tickets!
The kid was all smiles waiting in line for the "big dragon ride"
Fest popcorn is worth fighting over!
The next day was my birthday and we started the day off with breakfast downtown Crystal Lake. What cuties!!
Then some backyard pool action
We ended the night with Cary fireworks (Grandma Malic was kind enough to watch Brooke as she was asleep before we even left the house!!)
For the actual 4th, we woke up and packed up for a day at the beach in Fontana on Geneva Lake.
We ended the weekend with a little grilling with the whole Malic crew followed by smores and sparklers!!
I have no idea how we are going to top this next year but we will sure try. Truly the definition of the perfect summer weekend.
