All American Fun!

We have had perfect weather this 4th of July weekend. Lots of time for outdoor fun, socializing with friends and great food. It has been our first holiday where our family of 4 hasn't been able to all be together, since Abby left on Sunday for a Marching Band trip to Seattle, WA.

Some traditions have had to change a bit, but we are so happy to be able to spend time with great friends, laugh and share in the excitement that surrounds celebrating the 4th of July.

Thankfully, no one was injured during the backyard sparkler extravaganza.

While two moms captured the activities to preserve the moment.

Steve rescued the broken "mega sparkler" and had time to write his own name in the air. Ha!

Good friends, good times, great memories...

Their joy is infectious and a disease I would love to have every single day.
