It was really nice that this year the 4th of July was in the middle of the week. While I wouldn't prefer this every year, it was kind of nice to have a day off in the middle of the week. It means that you can either take a couple of days off before or after and have a mini-vacation, or do what we did and just stay home and relax. Here is a picture of the little one peeking around a tree. She is getting to be such a fun age and really fun to play with. Today was the kind of day that makes me love being a mom!
