4th of July at the Beach

This year the Fitts family got into the family car and headed down to the beach to visit Grammy and Pops.  It was a nice long weekend and we had a great time.  I have lots of pictures to share of the kids adventures but I thought I would first share our 4th of July pictures and how we celebrated. 

Our first stop was the annual 4th of July Parade in Beaufort.  It was a little accident that we arrived there 30 minutes before the festivities started but a great accident, because the kids loved seeing all the floats, double decker bus, and getting candy (of course).  Had I known there was going to be a parade they would have been in their 4th outfits…oh well.

Cailyn enjoyed the…sounds.  Ha!


Wesley had a great view but the wind was fierce so he didn’t last long on his daddy’s shoulders.


While the big kids and their grandparents watched the parade close-up, Collins, Cailyn and I were in the shade.  Perfect chance for a close-up of us – boy I have a handsome hubby!


After the parade we went to the Maritime museum.  DSC_0384DSC_0387

Caught ya…Lawson is always picking up her brother, ugh.  I am not sure if it is to really help him or what, but goodness she is always picking him up!


Here are 2 of my cuties.  We will have to go back when Cailyn is old enough to get a picture of her in the ship! 


Collins and the kids….


After the museum we went by the waterfront and had lunch.  Lawson checking out all of the boats  It was a windy but gorgeous day!


After naptime we all got dressed up in our 4th of July outfits and went poolside for a cookout.  Here are some of pictures of the evening…


We had a great 4th of July.  Wesley favorite part of the evening were the Morehead City Fireworks.  They were actually amazing.  Wesley now wishes everyday there were fireworks!
