my sweet girl is already six months old. can you believe it? i sure can’t. she’s sitting up, babbling, eating solid foods, and is a heck of a lot more fun to be around than she was here. she’s not quite old enough to appreciate fireworks or the fourth of july, but that didn’t stop me from dressing her up and taking hundreds (yes, hundreds) of photos as she played with a shiny red, white and blue lawn decoration yesterday.
my fourth of july was a lot different than it was last year. besides taking a ridiculous number of pictures, jeff and i made a delicious (and patriotic!) breakfast, played with evie on the grass, and watched kids light tame fireworks when the sun went down. we grilled veggie dogs and drank wine on the front porch, and then toasted marshmallows with our neighbors in the middle of the street, lounging among the debris after the last sparkler had died.
how did you celebrate america’s birthday?
