Happy 4th of July!

Of course this long weekend has flown by us! We had a wonderful time with family and friends. On Friday, Ellison and I had a playdate with some of our friends at the Peek a Boo Playtown. Connor and his dad went canoeing for the whole afternoon and early evening. When they returned we made dinner for Connor's dad and enjoyed a meal out on our patio. We shared the big news about Baby Ball to all of his family that evening. Unfortunately we had to do most of it over the phone but everyone was very excited.

On Saturday, Ellison and I met up with my brother (Ellison's Uncle "GoGo") and we went out to run errands and then ate lunch & played at Chikfila. Ellison took a great nap while Connor and I got ready to have my whole family over for dinner at our house and the big gender reveal!

Playing with Googie (my Uncle) he was visiting from Pasadena, CA!

On Sunday we took Ellison to the 4th of July downtown festival. We spent a lot of time at the petting zoo which Ellison LOVED!
She looks like a little teenager with all her sassyness!

On Sunday night we went over to our friends, The Ogles, for a yummy dinner, playtime and then we headed to downtown Franklin to watch the fireworks! After waiting patiently for the fireworks to begin at 9:30pm the kids started to have meltdowns so we just decided to pack them back up in the car and head home. We will try again next year for the fireworks!
