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.)
They went upstairs to play...and came back down as fairies!
