Happy Fourth of July! I can’t believe that the Fourth has come and gone. This Summer is going by a bit too quickly, but we have travel plans to look forward to and still plenty of Summer days and nights to hang in the backyard.
Our Fourth was filled with hanging in our backyard, eating yummy foods, and playing baseball. I don’t know what it is about July 4th, but we always play hours of baseball. I think it is the movie Sandlot that inspires us. My husband had to work all day so it was just me and the kiddos. We are always so exhausted by the end of the night that we never get to make it to the fireworks. Plus the thought of packing up the kiddos and heading downtown, finding parking, and dealing with tired kiddos after a long day seems unthinkable, maybe next year we will brave it.
I try to incorporate fun and festive activities around Holidays. Jazzy girl and I painted our toes red and she was so good about letting her toes dry. This was the first time I painted her toes, but I have the feeling it will not be the last. Once they dried she was eager to show her big brothers her toes. The boys were very interested and even requested that I paint theirs.
We ate countless popsicles throughout the day, I grilled some hot links, made this corn, tomato, and avocado pasta salad recipe. I am obsessed with her blog and Instagram account. If you are looking for inspiration in the kitchen she is your girl. I can’t wait to try more of her recipes.
We are so grateful for our freedom and truly are blessed, Happy Birthday America! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.
