We enjoyed our Fourth of July tradition again in Wheaton, Illinois visiting AJ's sister. The little town has many festivities over the weekend but we mainly look forward to the parade.
However it started out with loud fire engines and sirens so it woke Lincoln up and Evangeline didn't like it since she was already nervous about loud noises. (notice the earmuffs-she sleeps in them during storms even)
But it was still fun and the kids picked up lots of candy.
This year Erin took us to a new park and pool. It was nice to have a shallow pool with a zero entry that way all the kids could play on their own.
But after a while they were cold and ready for some pizza.
This park had a zipline, how fun!
The kids requested to come back to this same park one more time before leaving so they could do the zipline again.
They also enjoyed this gigantic hill...walking up and running down over and over again.
And of course we had to get a cousin picture. They love hanging with Owen so much!
