Fourth of July 2017

Fourth of July is always one of our favorite holidays thanks to sweet traditions in the neighborhood and a fantastic fireworks show at the club in the evening.
This year, we started the festivities one night early thanks to Rick's new firm's uptown office perch that overlooks a downtown Dallas display.  (Next time, we'll bring some sunglasses for the kids!)
The Hull and Jordan kids had a ball with a BBQ and games beforehand...maybe too much fun for this brand new set of colleagues... haha
Front row seats.
The Jordan family has officially outgrown the go-cart for our parade appearances.  Grace sweet-talked herself into wedging between the two seats, but I'm pretty sure Mr. Jordan will be sure to upgrade to a new vehicle before any 2018 Easter or 4th of July parade obligations.  There is no more room in our yellow inn.
 Rick said that kids yelled, "Hi Palmer" and "Hi Grace" during the entire route and I loved getting different route angles sent to me during the parade from various friends.
We stopped by a few watch parties afterwards, but the kids couldn't resist stripping down to their swimsuits for the annual Theriot party.

 (Throw-back to that same spot with those same kiddos in 2015.)
Back to this year...
We ended the day with a visit to the club for swimming and more BBQ and fireworks.  Cousin Elle and family joined us and we barely saw the older kids until the sun went down.  They swam their hearts out and Grace entertained with flips off of the diving board.
Happy Fourth, America.
