4th of July

I know this post is late but, better late than never! Our 4th of July was pretty low key, mostly due to the weather that was not cooperating. Andrew was in town and we headed over to a family friends house for an afternoon BBQ. Abby really liked the swing they had out on the deck and also playing with the other kids down in the basement. Olivia kept herself busy by crawling after all the little doggies that were there. The afternoon brought the rain and we were debating whether or not to even bother going to see any fireworks. At the last minute the weather cleared up enough and Andrew, my mom and I decided to take Abby and my Dad, Jane and Olivia stayed at home. While it wasn't raining, it was COLD. We parked the van and stopped by the Corner Bakery for some hot chocolate, that's right hot chocolate on the 4th of July!!! It was fun watching the fireworks in the cold with our hot chocolate though and Abby enjoyed the show after she decided she wasn't scared. Even though it was a pretty low key holiday it was great because it was spent with people we love and Andrew got to be there with us!

The best picture I got of the girls together in their 4th of July outfits
Abby plugging her ears in anticipation of the loud booms!
Oh wait, she like it! And she has the best seat in the house, on top of Daddy's shoulders
Notice the hot chocolate in Abby's hands!!
