The Fourth: Beach & Fireworks

4th of July is one of my favorite holidays! We have started our own family tradition of a day at the beach and then watching the amazing fireworks show at the Biltmore Hotel. This is our third year spending the holiday this way, I blogged about last year here.

I love the beach and JC doesn't. This is the one day a year that he will go with me. The kids totally enjoy it though so he is stuck with our 4th of July beach day!!

I posted some pics throughout the day on Instagram (@scggirl) and the rest I saved for this post!!

Isn't this guard house adorable?

When extreme boredom kicks in, JC practices his handstand walks. 

After the beach, we went home, caught the end of the Brazil vs Colombia World Cup game and got ready to go watch fireworks!

Every year, the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables opens up the golf course to everyone and anyone that wants to watch their amazing fireworks show. The event is free, put on by the City of Coral Gables, and runs from 5pm to 9pm. The event begins with an orchestra playing different types of music and then at 9pm the show begins. Since I color-coordinate our 4th of July outfits, I take this moment to take our annual family photo! There was a lot less cooperation this year, but after a couple tries, we managed to get this one. I don't love it but I am content for now.

Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July!!!

  1. July 4th is definitely a favorite of mine. Sometimes I think I like it more than Christmas, just because I hate winter that much.
    Love the last family shot!
