4th of July!

There's nothing more fun in the Summer time than 4th of July barbecues, ice cream, playing in the water, and fireworks! We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend this year. Friday we had fun with the Sperry's and Saturday we had fun with the Dutra's.

Here is Emma enjoying her very first creamsicle, she's game for anything you give her to eat! I think she ate most of that one in the picture. Cute Emma.

Girls having fun at Grandma and Grandpa's backyard, in the kiddie pool. They LOVED IT! It's so cute to see how much fun these little ones can have in 3 inches of water! :) And they look darling in their bathing suits.

Check out Emma's chunkylicious thighs! She wants to walk so bad, and spends as much time as she can grabbing people's hands and going for a walk. She's getting close! One of these days I just know she's going to let go and take off. Until then, I sure love those chunky thighs!

Anna enjoying her very first experience with fireworks. She loved the sparklers and called them "princess fairy fire wands" and had lots of fun seeing the beautiful colors of fireworks. I think she also really loved getting to stay up late. Isn't it so fun to see things we enjoy through a child's eyes for the first time? I have to say I have never enjoyed fireworks, or even really cared about fireworks, until this year. Every comment, every awed look up at the skies was delightful to me! What a fun time we all had!

Princess fairy fire wands- I love it. Emma is so darling holding your hands- what a cutie!! I'm with you- I think celebrations were invented just for kids. Happy 4th of July!
