Independence Day

A {very overdue} few photos from our long July Fourth weekend.....

The weekend of the fourth was a long one for me as I had four days off work -- it was glorious! We started out with an outdoor BBQ at a friend's lovely modern farmhouse. We ate grilled chicken, delicious veggies and splurged a bit on this gal's smores bars (divine I tell you), chatted with old friends, made new friends (one of whom apparently grew up in the same county as us!), watched the kiddos play, lit sparklers, watched fireworks and went to sleep so pleasantly happy. It was so fun to see our friends who are at the same place in life as us.. the kiddos hung in pretty well, too! Elliot slept in his carrier for the majority of the party and woke up to see he fireworks, which he actually loved! 

Saturday morning we had a delicious breakfast with friends and headed up to the mountains. We spent most of the day outside in the gorgeous cool-for-July weather and had dinner with old friends. Elliot got to sit in his first tractor and absolutely loved the open fields and beautiful blue sky. Sunday morning we took E for a long walk at the park across from our friends' house before heading back home. On a small side note, we absolutely love our Stokke Scoot that my friend Jodi so graciously sent us. I love having E facing me so I can talk to him while we walk! I also love that I can sit him up and then easily transition him to lying down when he finally falls asleep. Sometimes, it's the little things that make life so much easier!

All in all it was a perfect weekend spent celebrating our independence, family and friends. Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!
