Who doesn't love holidays? I'll take any excuse to dress up, grill-out, wear big sunglasses and eat festively colored donuts. Our 4th of July was filled with family, food and fun - just as a holiday should be :) We didn't do any fireworks this year, but we did get to experience my 3-year-old nephew's first sparkler.
I must say, everything is much more fun when there's a child around to delight in the wonderment of it all. You start looking at things with new eyes and a fresh perspective. Little things matter more, and worries aren't as big. It was a great way to kick off the long weekend. The next couple days were full of swimming, soaking up the sun, and lots and lots of water slides. Summer, I hope you stay a long, long time.
