Of course the babies had to be decked out for their first 4th of July. So they started the day in these cute outfits from my Auntie Mary & Uncle Phil.
But oddly, it was a little chilly in the morning so sweatshirts were added for our first event of the day. We went to our friends' house for a quintessential Central PA experience, a tiny local parade of tractors, riding lawnmowers, and a handful of little floats that lasted all of 15 minutes. But we enjoyed socializing with friends and meeting some new folks, many of whom said "Oh, you're the adorable triplets we've heard so much about!" :)

After the parade we came home for lunch and the babies' 1pm nap which gave us time to prep for having people over for a BBQ at 3. Thankfully they all took 2hr plus afternoon naps so we were all set when people arrived. It was a fun party with a diverse mix of friends. Overall it all went fairly smooth. Things were a little nutty around dinner & bathtime (which we did in the pool) because I was also trying to handle the grill then and we had to disappear from the party for 20min or so to nurse babies and put them to bed.

All in all a great, if tiring, Fourth of July!
