4th of July

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 4th of July. Hands down my favorite holiday of all time. I think it is like the ultimate "Summer is Here" day. This year we made a whole weekend of it! Gramma Peggy and Paw Paw were visiting from New Mexico so I spent 4 nights at mom's house just enjoying the wonderful company. Keith was working most of the time but he came to join us for the last night. It is such a joy to be able to spend time with family. I love those moments more than anything.

We mostly just played in the pool, and chatted, but it was so nice and relaxing! I took so many pictures and stole some from Kyle. I can't wait for more summer weekends!
