Happy Summer! Have a great 4th!

I hope everyone has a great 4th! Dave & I took the kids to the zoo this morning. It was nice to be there before it got to 90 degrees, like it is now! Portland’s having a heat wave for the 4th, so now we’re home in the AC. Later we’ll be out in our backyard pool, hope it has warmed up a bit since yesterday! Here are some pics from this week, the first pool outing of the summer. Can’t wait to inaugurate our firepit tonight with some s’mores!

Tomorrow we’ll be enjoying the neighborhood parade and all the kids on their decorated bikes. I’ll post some pics soon! And then we’re heading to our friends’ big party, they’re even taking out their front grass & putting in beach sand!
OK, they are landscapers and are putting in a new lawn soon, but still, it should be very cool! They’re renting a big bounce house & a dunk tank, hopefully I’ll get Dave in there! Combine that with hamburgers, snacks, all sorts of alcoholic drinks & a pile of illegal Washington fireworks and we should have a lot of fun tomorrow night!

Hope you all have just as much fun as we are! Enjoy!
