Happy 4th of July!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July! We're at the lake, and I'm so excited that my girls are going to get to spend today the way I did growing up--carefree, sun-drenched, and water soaked. They're too young for fireworks, but when I was a kid, there was always the anticipation of dusk, fireworks, and sparklers. There were the ones that popped in the air and little parachute men glided down. And then there were the ones that snaked their way across the table. Oh such fun memories of the 4th and the lake. I look forward to the future when my girls will get to do these things too. Tonight will be Caroline's first trip to watch the fireworks over the lake. We'll put her in her pjs and life jacket, then go on the pontoon to the point, where they'll have a multi-million dollar display. I CAN'T wait! She of course has no clue. But I can't wait to see her expression. She'll either love it or be scared. But I'm definitely a "traditions" girl, and it means so much to me that my girls get to experience some of the same ones that I did once. Tonight's just the first of many.

I hope all of you have a safe and happy 4th!

PS--I'll post my SO July LOs soon!

I am all about traditions too. And my boys are 4 and almost 3 and they still don't LOVE the fireworks like I hoped they would.
