Family Reunion

Tradition. It's tradition. My parents, siblings, nieces and nephews gather together in Baileys Harbor Wisconsin every year for the 4th of July and a family reunion.

Everyone wears their red, white and blue.

We toss candy to parade-watchers in an old-fashioned parade while my dad drives his old Ford truck.

This year was Sam's first year walking in the parade (in previous years he watched the parade). We had to ration the candy this year! There were thousands of people!

After the parade, we return to my parents cottage on the lake to play in the water and catch up before dinner, fireworks and s'mores.

According to most of the kids in our family "Fourth of July is the best day of the year after Christmas and my birthday!"

Um, you forgot to say favorite sister-in-law. Your parents, siblings, nieces, nephews AND favorite sister-in-law gather together.
Just kidding ... great photos, as always! It really is one of the best days of the year, isn't it?!

So much fun. And I love the first shot of your three. Beautiful. I can imagine it's hard to get shots of all three together.
