Our Happy 4th of July!!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!!

We had a wonderful 4th of July. We enjoyed a laid back, low key cook out at my Mom and Da's house! This was great because both girls were sick last week, so we were exhausted from that and still wanted them to completely gain their strength back. Madelin had a cold virus mid-week (she actually still had a fever on Thursday when we went to the beach, which is why she was so CHILL and sleeping on the sand...don't worry, she didn't stay there long, until one of us picked her up and let her sleep in the shaded double stroller!), and MJ caught it over the weekend. Sunday, me and the girls stayed home from church to let them rest up. I was looking back at my 4th of July posts and read that both girls were sick LAST 4th of July too!! They threw up on the way home from fireworks!!! Interesting. At least this year, it was a simple cold virus and hit us before the 4th celebrations. So, having a chill cookout at Mommom and Pappy's house was perfect for us!

MJ and Mommy!!

Madelin riding the bike out back. Notice her bracelet and MJ's necklace...both girls must have a piece of jewelery on to leave the house!! I think they caught my love for Jewelery!!

Mommom and MJ!

Here is the crew sitting around the table enjoying our MANY FREEDOMS and living in AMERICA!!! We all sat out back from like 6:30 until was so nice chatting!

And a final picture to show why we did NOT do Fireworks! Madelin was afraid and did not want to hear the "boom-booms," as she calls them! So, since we were all so comfortable, we decided to skip the fireworks, per the girls request. We could hear a few fireworks off in the distance, which is why Madie is sitting with Daddy and he is covering her ears.

All in all, we had a great day!
