4th of July "Staycation"!

Hello hello!  I can't believe it's already Thursday!  With the 4th of July being on a Tuesday this year, I'm all mixed up on my week!

We had the BEST long holiday weekend from Friday to Tuesday!  I'm deeming it a "staycation" if you will - we were originally planning on going away for the 4th but then decided it would be fun to just stay home and do lots of fun stuff around Pittsburgh.  And that's exactly what we did!

Coffee outside, morning runs, delicious froyo, and fireworks!
We didn't want to keep Elijah up late on the actual 4th of July since he had to go to daycare the next day, so we found a nearby town that was doing fireworks on Friday and he loved them (for the most part... not a fan of the big boom ones)!

Pool day!
We spent the day at a nearby pool that had a ton of water features for little kids (and a huge sandbox!) and Elijah had the best time!  And so did we!

Morning runs, biking downtown, and more froyo!
We headed downtown and biked along the South Side/Station Square trail and Elijah loved looking at the river and watching the trains go by!  He LOVES his bike seat - which is so awesome because we love biking!  Oh, and do you like my new shirt?  "Powered by wine" :)

Moraine State Park!
We had such a fun day at Moraine - we brought our kayak and rented a canoe and Elijah loved it!  He kept saying "Momma, I on a boat!  Momma, I on a BOAT!"  He did SO well in the canoe.  We met up with Brett's family too and had fun hanging at the beach on the lake.  Elijah is definitely a water baby. :)

4th of july!
 We started the day with a 5k race (which Brett got 3rd place in his age group!!) in Brentwood, which was immediately followed by their 4th of July parade.  What a fun morning!  Elijah's favorite part was most definitely all the fire trucks.  :)  And then we had my family over for a fun little 4th of July BBQ.  Elijah and Pari (Eli's cousin) had a blast splashing around in the water and eating alllll the snacks.  :)  We didn't keep Elijah up for fireworks (since we saw them on Friday), so we just had a relaxing night at home after everyone left.

What a weekend!  So fun!
I love SUMMER!
