thursday, july 8

we decided to have an impromptu bbq for the fourth of july this year.  afterall, we celebrate 2 birthdays on this special day…america's and jastin's.  it was an all american day; good company, good food, big sparkles in the sky and one happy little girl through it all.

happy birthday daddy!



i'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing but little miss adali had a slight infatuation with sparklers!  she definitely takes after her papa in the love of fireworks department.

lucky for us, as we finished putting our "little" sparkles in the sky the neighbors started adding their BIG sparkles to the night.  it was like we had our very own personal show!  thank you neighbors…whoever you are….

i love laying in bed at night when all of the festivities are over and hearing the booms high in the sky and knowing that so many people out there are celebrating the same exact thing.  thank you america for the best gift of all…our freedom.  and thank yo to all of those men and women out there that make our independence possible!  

summer is in full swing and i need time to stop!  i never want it to end.  

much love,

mama a

    I am so glad your family had a great 4th of July. We did as well. Adali was so cute in all of her red, white & blue! I hope you continue to have a very fun summer.
