Just to remember.....I LOVE Independence Day!


I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. I love this holiday!!! When I reminded Hunter Dan how much I loved it he said,"yeah, and every other holiday." It's true I usually decorate my yard and house for each holiday or season, but....it just didn't happen this year! Too much time with my head in the toilet:-)! I'm hoping by Halloween I can scare the yard up good!(it's one of my most favorite!!!)

********************
At least I was able to decorate the girls up a bit! Here's some photos of the day, there are a lot, and this post is long... just humor me!:-)
*Also, just to explain a little...Bug, and Lexlee were at there Dad's for the holiday this year, so it was just the two little girls. July 2nd was their last day of school, and Lexlee wanted to be patriotic, so here is what she wore on the last day of school. Bug wore red, white, and blue also, but I didn't get a pic of him.
*******************
We(I, Hunter Dan had many things he was trying to accomplish this weekend)spent a nice relaxing day at home...mostly. We had to be over to the church at 8:45 to line up for the "bike" parade. It is something Jibbity has been looking forward to for an entire year, because a few days after last years parade, she learned how to ride her bike without training wheels. Her and Hunter Dan spent the evening before decorating her bike, she told me I could have a break this year from decorating, since I was sick.(too cute)
Photos from the parade, and at the church while waiting for the bikes to return from around the block.
Our ward always has a breakfast after the parade, but I wasn't feeling up to staying, so we just came home, and that is where my relaxation comes in! Later in the evening Hunter Dan cooked us some yummy hamburgers on the grill, and then when it was dark, he started his fireworks show. I sooo wanted to see some big ones this year, but Ashie was pretty nervous, so we opted for the home version. Around us there were many who don't follow the law, and buy illegal... then shoot them off in the city,(my law abiding hubby..haha.. only had a few left from last year) so I still got to see many that were up in the air! Gorgeous!

He LOVES doing fireworks!!!

The girls had already had their baths to be ready for church....Ashie was quite nervous, but as long as I didn't put her down she was o.k.

I never could understand how kids could fall asleep during fireworks, but....

Too sweet!

What a great day, and what a great country we live in!! Hope everyone's holiday was safe and wonderful!! Have a fantastic Monday!

For a barfy pregnant lady, you sure look gorgeous. How did you pull that one off? Perhaps you could write a Barf Your Way To Beauty book....?
The girls are adorable and I love little Ashie's worried face. Those eyebrows! Oh my.
