The 4th of July is celebrated in our little town with a parade, originally created for neighborhood kids to keep them away from dangerous fireworks. The parade has continued and grown through the years, but kids are still the focus. Jim and I were already at the lake, but these three were decked out an ready to ride in the parade.
Meanwhile at the lake, Bryan, Jennifer, Noah, and Piper arrived.
I made the traditional flag fruit pizza. I've been making a variation of this treat since I was in high school.
I used some photos from through the years to decorate at the lake.
Happy Birthday Nana!
They day was spent on the water...

Of course, we had cake. And candles.
Some of the family headed home, and the rest of us boarded the pontoon for an evening cruise.
Kristin and Kyle took Baby Alaina on her first boat ride.
There was even some dancing.
