This Fourth of July, we had a ‘Murica pool party at our house.
I started by looking for some red, white and blue food on Pinterest.
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!
