We had a lovely (and very humid) 4th of July! Gordon didn’t have to work, so we attended a fun “small town” parade with some friends in Central Park, had brunch and then had a picnic dinner with friends. These photos I’m sharing today are my favorites from the parade my boys were in! Gordon decked out their scooters and both boys had a ball scooting around! I didn’t expect to take so many photos, but I’m so glad I did. Happy to share these sweet photos today.

Brooke is still having a ball with her cousins up in Canada, getting spoiled by her grandparents. It’s weird to take all these photos without her being in them, but there’s always next year 🙂

Poor Eddie was so hot and sweaty the entire 3 hours we were outside. We all were pretty drenched, but particularly Eddie was REALLY drenched. This is why we need his hair short in the summer!

At our picnic brunch. Can you see he’s in the middle of telling me something important? Look at his hand out there mid-explanation. Haha! He is such a sweetheart.

Hope you all had a great 4th of July! Here’s to hoping Brooke is back with us for next years’ festivities!

    Your boys are very handsome. Love Eddie’s blue eyes. My husband and I have 5 boys and only one of them got my husband’s blue eyes.
