Thursday was July 4th!! My bff from Baylor, Shae, was spending the 4th at her parents' cabin in Angel Fire. So she came over to Red River with her boys, Smith and Bode, to join us for some 4th of July fun. First up...the parade! Our fave!
They collected more candy than they get at Halloween! They were in candy heaven :-)
We ran into our Dallas neighbors. Such a surprise and so fun!!
Avery & Caroline
We headed to the park for a picnic and some playtime after the parade. Uncle Ronnie taught Matthew learned how to throw a Frisbee. He's pretty good!!
Thursday night we drove over to Eagles Nest to watch the firework with Shae and her family. Due to the super bright flash on my camera I wasn't able to get too many pics. The kids loved the fireworks!
Friday morning, we met Shae and the boys again to go horseback riding! We took the bigs and my mom took the littles to the park. This was Smith and Caroline's first time to ride a horse. Caroline was a little fearful at first but quickly warmed up to it. I loved it! Brought back MANY memories of riding horses with my dad in Red River every summer. I loved snuggling with Caroline during the ride as we rode up the mountain through the pretty aspen groves. What a special memory!
Thanks for all of the memories, Red River! We'll be back!
