It was so weird having the Fourth of July on a Wednesday this year, but it actually was the perfect break in the week. We spent the day with some great friends and enjoyed the first day of Summer weather for a while.
We went over to a friend's house in the morning to enjoy a little breakfast and chat on their patio before two other families joined us and we walked up to be part of the annual neighborhood parade. After a few blocks around the parade loop, the whole loop was only a few blocks, we made it back to the house to fire up the grill. A delicious bbq lunch and play time in the backyard. Between me and Brian we captured several great pictures of the kiddos on this beautiful day. Next year we'll have a little one in tow with the rest of the neighborhood. They probably won't know what is going on, but we will!

|The Powell kids. The lady on the right, Viola. The little man is Hugo.|
|After Viola it was hard to imagine another Powell that was so irresistible. We found him.|

|It was pretty bright out, but the shades just were not working for her.|
|Lovely lips just like his Mama.|
|Holiday spirit on those chunky little legs.|

|Hugo has the right idea. Bring the bed to me, not me to the bed.|
