Sunday in My City-July 4th recap!!


I thought for this Sunday in the city I would recap my July 4th in Mayville, New York at Lake Chautauqua. We had such a great time with my childhood friend and her family. You may remember we crashed their family reunion for a couple days. They had a beautiful lake house where we hung out, the kids fished and we relaxed and visited. The next morning was the most impressive 2 hour small town parade. I was surprised they still throw candy out to the kids along the road. I tried bartering and trading with the little ones for their tootsie rolls but none would have anything to do with me!! 

After the parade, down by the lake they had a mini carnival, music and lots of carni food. It was a gorgeous but hot day. We stayed there awhile spending a million bucks before heading to my friend Uncle's house for a BBQ. 
Her Uncle has 42 arces of land with trails and a small lake. Katelyn was in her element driving the kids around in his ATV truck and golf cart......hours of entertainment. After that we head out to fire works and they were just as impressive as the parade. 

Next day more hanging out, chatting and than our goodbyes! It was a wonderful 4th of July. I hope yours was just as memorable! Have a great Sunday!
