Fourth of July!

For the Fourth of July we had a great day. Will started the day off by going to the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest in Coney Island. He rode his bike and was there in about 25 minutes! He always watches this event live and it was a "bucket list" item for him. 

After the kids woke up from naps, we set off to explore Brooklyn. We went on a subway ride. It was the first time for the kids, and they did great! I wore Edith both times in the Ergo, and Israel was very content in the stroller. We just went up a few stops so it didn't take long but they did great. 

We went to Target and got some popcorn for a snack. We didn't buy anything but just enjoyed walking around!

After Target we walked around Fort Greene and went by the park there. Will looked like SuperDad!

We went to Shake Shack for dinner and then headed home. Successful outing!

At the end of the night the kids were too tired to stay up for fireworks. Maybe next year!

Overall, the day was really good. There were some really hard moments this week and we really needed a positive day together. I'm really thankful for God's grace and for the moments that are just sweet and successful. The hard days make the good days even better.
