This Fourth of July, we had a ‘Murica pool party at our house.

go site I started by looking for some red, white and blue food on Pinterest.

see url I also got some pretty sweet balloons from Publix.

Watermelon, raspberries, cherries and strawberries were the red.

Blueberries were the blue.

And the white was yogurt-covered pretzels.

I made some brownies and used a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut them out and then drizzled them with some red frosting and blue sprinkles.

I also used the cookie cutter for the watermelon.

For our drinks, we made Peach Iced Tea Whiskey from Tasty and it was delicious!

After swimming and food, we did fireworks!

I saw this idea on Pinterest; HOWEVER, I would change it next time. After a few times of doing a sparkler, Emma’s cup LIT ON FIRE! Soooooooo, next year I am going to try to use a mini aluminum pie pan to shield their hands from the sparklers.

They also LOVED their Pop Its and I got them some glow stick bracelets, which were a HUGE hit!

The next day, we went to our annual parade and I put these super cute hair clips in their hair.

Every year, we also take a family picture:

I hope you had a safe and happy Fourth!
