We had a very low-key, but fun, 4th of July.

We started the day with our Donut Party.

Then, we went to Mt. Bonnell.

We had a fun snack that consisted of three salsas and a semi-red, white, and blue slush.

It was a beautiful Independence Day, and it made me so thankful that we live in a country where we are blessed to enjoy family, food, fun, and freedom.

    You made all your celebrations meals look absolutely beautiful. You certainly must have gotten your talent for decorations from your Uncle Ronnie. Love all the post you have been having during the summer What a fantastic Mom you are. Thanks for making my grand children so happy and kind. You and Sean have done such a fine job at parenting. Keep up the good work!! I’ll be looking forward to reading what all is going on in the life of the Family during the remaining summer break.

    • I am glad that you are enjoying reading about and seeing our summer (the season) :). Each time I look at pictures, I remember why I spend time behind my camera. I can look at a single picture and immediately be taken back to that one, specific moment in time. It is one of the things that allows me to enjoy exactly the age that my children are at any given moment. I know that I can always look back at pictures and remember the moments exactly as they were then, too.
