Happy Belated 4th of July!

The 4th of July has always been a huge celebratory event in my family; Zach and I hope to carry many of those traditions over into our little family as well. Parades, fireworks, BBQ, swimming, late night walks and vacation have always played a major role in our Independence Day magic and this year was no different. In fact, minus the parades/vacation, we hit all the above out of the park. And it was pretty awesome just soaking it all up in the comfort of our own backyard. My parents & little brother came to visit and we had the best time enjoying Baby Bear's first 4th.
on Momma: top-Express, capris-Old Navy, polish-Color Club "London Calling"
on Bear: linen two piece suit-Janie and Jack, Bearfoot Sandals-Logs 'n Lace, paci clip-Booginhead "Nautical Red"
Bear hadn't seen Uncle Ryan since March and it was so sweet seeing them together again. Best buddies! 
 The 4th is also a time when we reflect on those who have so bravely served our nation, both past and present. Thank you, thank you, thank you to those incredible men and women.
God bless America and all who defend her.

Hope your 4th of July was a special one!
