Going out with a BANG!

We didn't leave our house without cramming in a LOT of last minute fun and time with friends.

We got to say good bye to our friends by celebrating Anaya's birthday.

 There was even a train ride and couple carousel rides as part of the party!

We took advantage of the great local farms and picked us some berries!  Yum, yum. (The buckets also made fabulous hats!)

We also took our last few days to hang out with our neighbors. 
 who helped us celebrate Davin's birthday too...
 and Maddy and I just had fun with our FIRST sleepover. And yes, we actually slept too... by 11am.

Finally, we enjoyed the Kensington July4th festivities. One of the best 4th of Julys yet. The bike parade actually happened this year - last year it and the fireworks were cancelled.  And better yet, they gave out FREE POPSICLES!

 And if we hadn't had enough sugar... we had a pre-fireworks bonfire - complete with S'MORES!
 And of course, the fireworks to celebrate our first family home... oh yeah and America's independence.

Wow!!! How much can you jam into a very short period of time -- 4th of July, partying with friends and neighbors, picking strawberries, traveling throughout southern Europe -- my, what a whirlwind time. Nana and I are very jealous. Now, all you need is a new house (keeping our fingers crossed)...

Glad you enjoyed your last few months with friends before your move. I'm sure you'll make new friends in your new state too! Can't wait to come see you again.
