Well, we didn’t do much on the actual 4th of July, but today, the 7th, we had a fun filled day celebrating together. It almost felt like we were home…except we were much cooler here! We got together with several other families on our base (mostly American, except for one Australian couple and one German gal, but we were happy to include them as well!) and had a cookout as well as fun games for the kids.
Here’s our patriotic family
The guys took turns blowing gigantic bubbles for the kids to pop.
Then we had some fun with water balloons.
Everett really liked to just squeeze them until they popped. He was SOAKED and we had to change his clothes!
Mr. Dave was the ring leader of all the fun activities for the kids.
Our patriotic table complete with yummy spread
Faye made both of these super cute red, white, and blue desserts and I thought they were too cute to not photograph them!
More yummy food and flags made by the kids.
Katie made these cute rockets that explode confetti when the string is pulled.
Pretty fun for the kids
My Patriotic Popsicles
They were actually pretty yummy
It was a fun day! We had lots of fun planning, decorating, playing, eating way too much and enjoying one another’s company! It is fun to celebrate some American things over here in the midst of another culture. We love our little community here!
