4th Of July

4th Of July

Nothing like posting about the 4th of July on October 1st…I promise I’ll be caught up soon. Smile 

In celebration of the 4th of July, Maddie wanted me to paint her nails. And she did a great job deciding how she wanted them painted.

Mid-morning, we went over to my mom’s house for a little gathering. We did a little swimming, but it wasn’t as warm as I would have liked for that. Smile

We tried taking a family photo, but the children would not cooperate. And it’s too bad because we all looked so cute and coordinating. Smile

Dannie was feeling especially photogenic. You stick a camera in her face, and on comes the charm!

While Dannie and I were taking pictures of ourselves, Maddie was lighting sparklers with my brother in the driveway.

The girls had their nap/rest time there, then we headed home. After it got a little later/darker and Dannie was in bed, we told Maddie we could do some more sparklers and some fireworks that she picked out with dad. She sat so patiently in her chair and had so much fun. (WOW does she look grown up!)

Maddie even had fun helping dad light the fireworks and she would giggle as she came running back to her chair.

Had to get a little picture with my sweet girl!

And I can’t remember if this was on the 4th or the night before, but we were sitting on the porch, enjoying the lovely summer weather and I could see some fireworks right through the trees. Smile

We had a great 4th and I am glad the girls are getting more excited about it. We just recently finished all the sparklers and the last of the fireworks. Next year we are hoping to take Maddie to fireworks. We had hoped to take her this year, it just didn’t end up working out.
