4th of July Rewind


July 5, 2012

I cannot lie, I was a little down at the fact that the 4th of July was on a Wednesday this year, yet after the fact I have to admit that it was nice to have a little mid-week break to celebrate with family and our best friends. We ventured over to my Aunt Denise’s house for food, fun, summertime beverages, and loads of water volleyball.

look at that patriotic baby! stars and stripes forever 😉
 CC and her godmother/Aunt Meg
 our happy little family
 me with my favorite firecracker!
 gran and papa and their 1st great grandbaby
 my little butterball
 four generations…my cup runneth over
I think I am still in a food coma today from all that I consumed yesterday…barbeque and all the traditional sides, coupled with my favorite Oreo dessert I whipped up, and my new favorite beverage (the Bud Light Lime-a-rita=AMAZING!), we’re taking it easy today and spending the day at the house catching up on chores!
Hope you all had a fantabulous Independence Day celebration, too!

    How cute is Caroline holding that flag in her little hand!! what a great picture! They all are of course!

  2. Miss V says:

    First… Caroline is too precious for words.. I die for those lips! Second… I know it's not "important" but you look AMAZING. Love the mix and match bikini. One hot mama. Glad you had a happy 4th! xoxo

  3. What great pictures! Four generations — you are one lucky girl. By the time I graduated college, I sadly had no grandparents left. I always love seeing people who have such close bonds to their grandparents and are thankful to have them in their lives.

    Ya'll had one major thing yesterday that we kept wishing for … a chilly, refreshing POOL!
