4th of July in Tower Lakes

Every year my family and I have celebrated the 4th of July in the neighborhood I grew up in, Tower Lakes, nestled in Barrington, IL. We celebrate our independence in the most quintessential way--a long weekend filled with a parade, boat races, tug-of-war, egg tossing and barbecuing, just to name a few. Here are a few of my favorite shots from my favorite 4th yet!

Pat McKillen played a few sets throughout the weekend which were a fantastic time, as always! Check out his music here.

We take the egg toss very seriously. This year Scott & Pat totally killed it finishing out the competition with [in my opinion] at least a 100' toss. So epic.
