Independence Day 2017

We decided to keep our 4th of July pretty mellow this year especially since it landed on a Tuesday. It was a beautiful day so we gave some thought to what we wanted to do.


2 years ago, 1 year ago, and now

We started our morning off with a family walk. It felt good to get some activity in right away before it got too hot.

Then it was play time outside. Liam loves splashing in his water table and taking water out of it to water the plants. We stayed out for a little while but it ended up getting pretty hot. So we headed inside.

Before we knew it, it was lunch time and then nap time. I decided to power clean the house during nap and I am thankful I did. It needed to get done. Joe decided to take a little snooze too.

After nap we went to my parent’s for some pool time. My brother and his family were there too.  It was nice to get in the water and cool down. Liam is warming up more and more to swimming so that is fun too.

Also Baby 2 was making a serious appearance on the 4th. Holy cow! Look at that belly!


We had dinner at my parent’s with everyone and Liam ate so much watermelon. He loves it.


After dinner we played inside for a little while. My dad and Joe went and got us some DQ blizzards for dessert too. So good and hit the spot!

Look at my little teenager! He is so funny!


Then we headed home to put a very tired little mister to bed and go to bed not too long after.

It was a fun, relaxing, and exhausting day! So thankful to spend time with family.

I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July!
