Fourth of July
Have I ever mentioned how much I love the 4th? It's one of my favorite holidays because it's in the summertime (yay), it's simple, and the fireworks.
I remember sitting out on the fence when I was a little girl and watching them from far away. I just loved watching the burst of color in the sky.
We always start the morning with a breakfast to go as we head out to the 4th of July Parade.
These boys were so excited for the big day!
Traditional pictures (and a very messy boy..so messy we had to go straight home after and wash these clothes ha)
With the statue we get pictures by every single year.
A new tradition perhaps? The jumping picture.
The cutest little camper...oh my.
Then we headed home to prepare for our 4th of July party. It was so much fun!
This is my mom and dad, and my aunt and uncle. These ladies are sisters and they are precious. My aunt got in a car wreck a few weeks ago. She rolled her car 8 times. By the grace of God she was okay and came away with some broken ribs. We are so blessed to have her in our lives!
My sweetest cousin and one of my best friends with her littlest.
The girl table...I'm not used to one of those! *grin*
And the boy table:
The flowers. I had a lot of fun decorating if you can imagine.
And at last we headed to the fireworks.
It was such a beautiful day.
