July 4th In Rotan

Every year my hometown has a huge July 4th celebration complete with an all day softball tournament and a fireworks show at the end of the night. We’ve only missed one or two years since we’ve been married and it’s something we look forward to every year.

We spent the majority of the day going in between the softball fields and my parents house on the razor with cousins & friends!IMG_0893

Then, it was time to clean up and welcome our guests for our annual BBQ. My parents live in the perfect spot to watch the fireworks, so every year friends come over to eat dinner and stay for the firework show.

That vision you have of getting the perfect shot of all the cousins in their matching clothes – not happening when there’s fun to be had on a Pink Ranger waving an American flag!

Both boys have monogrammed shirts and seersucker shorts while the girls are wearing coordinating outfits – thanks to DeeDee!

We started out watching the fireworks on the grass, but they seemed to last extra long this year, so unfortunately neither kid made it to the grand finale. Maybe next year!

We had the absolute best July 4th as our new little family of four.
