4th of July

I've always been thankful for the country we live in, but I'm even more thankful now that we have Aniston.  Being able to fall asleep every night knowing that we're safe and free is such a blessing. 

Independence Day is a fun holiday for us.  Our first date was on July 4....twelve years ago.  (Eeek!  Totally had to count--twice--to make sure twelve was right.  Surely it hasn't been that long!)  We spent the day swimming with friends and then had a cookout.  We had a great time--even if the adults did get a little too much sun!  (The swimsuit I wore had straps that crossed in the back, so I'm sporting a super nice "X".  Pretty sure that's not going to fade even when the redness does.  Sigh.) 

 Sweet girls!
 
Floating fun!
 
They went upstairs to play...and came back down as fairies!
 
 
Happy 4th!
