4th of July---and more!

We had a great 4th of July this year! We kicked the day off by attending the Ridgefield parade...it was great because we found a spot in the the shade:) We then took Abbie to see the movie Up. It was her first time in a movie theater, and she had a lot of fun. We ended the day with a BBQ and fireworks at my parents house. Growing up, holidays were always special and I have many wonderful memories of the times spent with family. But now that I have children, holidays are even more special and wonderful. I love watching Abbie enjoy herself, surrounded by our family and friends, because I know that when she is grown she will remember these special days just as I do.

Love this face!

Such a happy boy!
