We stayed in town this year for fourth of July because let’s face it, who wants to travel with a four week old! I love Portland because no matter what holiday it is, there is always something fun for the entire family!
We started the day off with a walk around the neighborhood and after the kids napped, we went to Happy Valley Park.
They had all kinds of activities from food carts, to bouncy houses to awesome fireworks. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the awesome Prince cover band that played for hours on end!
Claire slept pretty much the entire time but Charlie had a blast. I would have to say his favorite part of the entire day was getting to see the fire trucks. This kid has a thing for cars, trucks and planes!
Later in the afternoon we made our way to my brothers house where we had barbecue and a bonfire with smores.
We stayed out way too late and I ended up only getting like 3-4 hours of sleep that night because of the baby, but it was well worth the fun!
Here are some photos from our day:
I hope you had a wonderful July 4th!
We are so thankful we get to live in such a great country!
