I hope you all had a great 4th of July last week – all of us in the McDermott household certainly did! Here’s how we spent Independence Day:
The day started out pretty gloomy with grey skies in Los Angeles, so we utilized our indoor time until the sun came out and crafted. Here’s the American flag Stella made!
Meanwhile, Hattie played iPhone police and boss of the house:
Miss Hattie can’t decide whether she wants to nibble on Dad’s iPhone or brother Liam’s nose with her three teeth! She’s feeling pretty grown up!
Here are my boys!!
Holidays call for hair art! Braid time…
The girls in their bathing suits waiting patiently for the sun to shine so that they can grab some pool time:
My Independence Day babes!
My hubby returned from the market with some beautiful sunflowers for mama:
The clouds start to go away and Hattie is ready to party!
Liam is happy the sun finally came out and shows off his 4th of July ensemble!
Love this necklace! I think of Dean & me and it’s a reminder that “I kissed a boy,” and I liked it! I really liked it and can’t wait to kiss my man for the rest of our lives!
Hattie’s new thing: Nose, nose, nose…
Mama Bear lounging poolside:
Dean hit the grill and made delicious burgers aka Krabby Patties (Sponge Bob reference – whatever gets the kids to eat!):
Dogs and bacon! How can you go wrong?
Perfectly grilled flank steak by The Gourmet Dad!
Stella says bon appétit!
Who doesn’t love a sleeping baby’s head? Love her blonde cowlick!
Dean made delicious Dr. Pepper ice cream floats. It was a spontaneous pregnancy craving but turned out delicious! Root beer move on over 😉
Liam’s was topped with his favorite monkey straw. After all, he is our MONKEY!
Liam ends our family poolside celebration with dessert. Red popsicles, of course. Everyone cheer… 4th of July!
When it got dark outside we watched the local fireworks and they were amazing! This was the kids’ favorite firework – a smiley face.
Liam said, “That firework looks like exploding diarrhea.” I guess I see his 5-year-old, I-love-to-talk-about-poop reference.
Afterwards we went inside and watched a 4th of July movie classic – Independence Day with Will Smith. I love that movie and was excited to share it with my kids! What a great, relaxing holiday.
