Our Fabulous Fourth

We had a great but extremely HOT 4th of July! Despite the heat, we still were able to do some of those quintessential July 4th activities - watching a parade, wearing red white and blue, drinking beer, eating watermelon, hanging out with friends, watching the kids playing in the baby pool, and doing some relaxing inside in the A/C as well.

We were thankful that all of our families had power restored from the storm the weekend before. My parents were without power for 4 or 5 days! I'm just grateful overall to have a nice, pleasant happy and healthy holiday! It really hit me this weekend just how lucky I am for everything that I have - health, friends, family, an awesome little girl and husband and sweet sweet air conditioning. And yes, freedom. It's not free, you know. I learned that from Team America. I'm not super patriotic, but yes, I'm glad I live in the good ole USA. Even in these 100+ days, what a wonderful summer it is!

My shining star!

I'm excited for the cool down we are supposed to get next week... mid-80s ya'll! So excited. It's almost been too hot to go to the pool! My mom is coming tomorrow and Neil and I are getting a date night! July 1st was our 6 year anniversary! Can't believe it's been 6 years since we got married. Time really flies. I hope everyone else had a great 4th of July too!
