We had a beautiful weekend celebrating the 4th of July with family. The weather wasn’t cooperative on Friday but we had a nice day indoors at my mother-in-law’s. Roman had such fun playing with his cousins and there was delicious food and great conversation for the adults.

On Saturday, the sun came out. We drove up to my parent’s trailer in the county north of ours. Once again Roman had a blast playing with his cousins and we had even more delicious food. We stayed out way past Roman’s bedtime to watch the fireworks display. That will be the last time that we do that for awhile. The combination of being overtired and overstimulated by the thunderous noise of the firecrackers was a bit too much for my little guy.

Even with the late ending, we had a lovely day and a beautiful weekend. We also stopped to give thanks and remember the true meaning of the holiday throughout.

  1. I love your photos. You are just making your summer look so dreamy. And you are just too cute in those side button shorts and red bathing suit: )

    1. Thanks, Suzy! Summer really is the dreamiest time. I’ve really been thinking about moving to a warmer climate. I could use summer weather all-year round. 🙂

  2. Looks like a perfect 4th of July. I know what you mean by the overstimulation and overtired bit-we just got back from vacation and there was a lot of that going on (on my behalf as well-ha!).

  3. I love all the lighting in the daytime photos. Looks like you guys had a great time. I love your bathing suit. Is that the top with shorts or are the shorts part of the suit? Either way, love the outfit!

    1. Thanks, Tina!! The top is a part of my bathing suit. It’s a two-piece “tankini.” The shorts are a separate piece. They are high-waisted shorts from Forever 21. 😉
