Our 4th of July couldn't have been more fun! I loved that it fell over the weekend and Jon got Friday off of work. Friday and Saturday were jam packed yet relaxing. I'll tell ya, our social life is 100x better than before we had kids and it is FUN! We spent hours at Mimi and Papa's pool, Ford only got out for an afternoon nap. We hopped over to another friends party where we had planned on keeping Ford up for fireworks (his bedtime is between 7-7:30 so it would have been a really big push since it doesn't get dark until 9p) and at 8:30pm he found me outside and sat in my lap and said, "Mama go home, go night night". I love my scheduled little boy! Saturday we walked in our neighborhoods parade and spent a few hours at the community celebration. Ford and I went down a huge slide, he ate popsicles (a total of 3 bomb pops within 24 hours), squirted water guns, and ran around with his friends. I just love our neighborhood, it is such a fun place to raise our children. We went to another BBQ....more swimming, popsicles, and lots of attention from family and friends! We are so thankful for living in a country where we can say what we want, do what we want, and be who we want. We are also so thankful for the freedom Christ has given us, an everyday celebration! All in all, it was a fabulous weekend and I am sad to see it end. For me and Jon, life is so much richer and more fulfilling with children, these are days to remember.

Ford wanted to play with all the big kids so bad!
