due to our "mommy/daddy" vacation last week, i'm behind. like, in all aspects of my life. but, what's new, right? anyway, we celebrated the 4th the day before with a "cook-in", well, because our "cook-out" was hijacked by a pretty big storm that lasted the entire day. we had fun anyway with friends and family celebrating our nation's birth.
the 4th is my favorite holiday, so i had to include it in my posts. i think it started with the fireworks when i was young but as a student of american history, i became fascinated with the founders and their ideas that sparked a revolution. ideas that i firmly believe in today (i.e. upholding our constitution), and if we ever stop having kids (!) i might actually finish school and get to teach that history to young people some day. plus, that red, white, and blue...it's a great color combo and my kids looked super cute that night!
