We had a small celebration of our nations freedom this year. We knew some of our families were getting together, and we always miss family on holidays. We did have a good day however.
First I have to show off the very cute t-shirts! I am so happy with how cute they are! Faith’s headband was made by her Aunt Tessa. I could not get the kids to sit still though! This was the best one I got.
Going outside didn’t help at all either!
I like to make food that is patriotic. It helps celebrate in a bigger way I think. Plus it’s just fun! I wanted to do a picnic but we ended up eating in our back yard instead.
The Jello and cupcakes were a big hit!
Miss Faith. Her first 4th of July. She is almost 7 months!
We showed up just in time to see fireworks. Which turned out to be too late in city-ezz. It would be a small-town-there-is-always-room mentality that got us in trouble. There was no where to park! We ended up parking quite a ways away from the park, and walked for a while. In the end we sat in someone’s driveway. Next year we’ll probably go much earlier just to get a good parking spot!
Happy 4th of July! Remember freedom isn’t free! I am truly thankful for the freedoms I live with!
