Oh, da fourth…

I just love the 4th of July!  I definitely like it better in Michigan than in Texas – but I like it regardless.  It’s just too dang hot here.  The 4th of July in Michigan – there are boats on the lake, a lovely breeze, maybe you need to grab a jacket to watch the fireworks because it is getting a bit chilly….I digress.  But, I do love the 4th.


Oh, Lake Highlands.  You put on a parade.  We were sweating and enjoying it…but I was still daydreaming about being on a lake…


My momma & I aka the candy grabb - abi & ry’s cups were overflowing…




I mean seriously, too cute.

Sweet Nate was such a trooper…we woke him up, he stayed awake (and really focused on the fireworks!), and then he fell asleep on the way home.  Thanks, buddy.
