Happy Birthday, America!
I used to HATE having my birthday so close to the fourth of July, but the older I get, the more I love it. Also, it gives me the need to theme! haha
I love this great country that has so many opportunities & freedoms. I am thankful for the privilege to be an American & for so many to have risked their lives to allow us to have the freedoms we have.
Even our home got in the patriotic spirit this year:
Especially being a parent now, I hope with all the BBQs & swim parties, I can teach my kids why July Fourth is so important; it’s the day our country was established!!
But for now, we will munch on firecracker popsicles & discuss independence.
We spent the day with my side of the family (most of Chad’s side was packing to move!). We ate my dad’s burgers & played games. It was really laid back, but Watson had so much fun with his cousins!!
Chad even got a nap!!
Happy Birthday, America. We sure love you!!
