Happy 4th of July!

We celebrated a perfect July 4th yesterday from start to finish. Our morning began very early with a 5:30am wake up call to get dressed to cheer for Daddy at his 14th Annual Peachtree Road Race. The kids kept themselves busy handing out "free high fives."

Tuttle tolerates my yearly flag picture. I know sooner rather than later he will probably be running the race, but I will still make him stop for this tradition.

Jay had been training in this hot summer sun for the last few weeks to prepare, and he finished with an impressive time. Running comes so naturally to him. Cheering is more natural for me.

Our other favorite July 4th tradition is lunch with the Poole Family after the race. Since the starting time was earlier this year, we opted for breakfast at The Flying Biscuit instead of our normal Taco Mac meal. We were seated in the back room which accommodated our loud bunch. :)

Our afternoon consisted of long naps for Mommy and Jacob and pool time for Daddy and the big kids. It was a win for everyone!

Gram and Grumps treated us to a cookout complete with hotdogs, hamburgers, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, and cupcakes. They better be careful or they may never get rid of us. 

Happy 4th of July!
