4th of July at the farm

We had a great 4th of July!  So great that I totally forgot to blog about it and share all my pictures!  We went out to the farm and spent the afternoon and evening with family, enjoying all the things that you should enjoy on the 4th!  We grilled out, played bean bags, the girls swam in the little pool, we had a fire, ate smores and lit some fireworks!

Since our kids usually go to bed at 8:00, I didn't know if we'd make it for the fireworks.  But they did awesome!  Luckily Kyla got a good nap in before we went.  We ended up getting home around 10:30, but they were both so great all night!

And now, in typical Mrs. Mommy fashion, a picture overload...

Shirt from Carter's, skirt from Gymboree (didn't plan on them going together, but I didn't think the white shirt that matched the skirt was very practical for the farm).

Love to watch these two interact.
She gets jealous when I take Kase's picture now.  She says "MY TURN".

His shirt is Gymboree :)

My nieces Emma and Gianna

She learned how to throw rocks in the creek and then didn't want to do anything else the rest of the night!

Three cute red heads taking a stroll.

Emma had to bring her back since she wouldn't come willingly.

Of course Teddy had to come too!

Up close and personal

Family is the best!

And the family farm is one of my favorite places to be!  It is so beautiful and peaceful!

My mom always buys fireworks every year.  This year was the best show yet!  You have a lot to live up to next year, Mom!

Overall, it was an awesome day!  I'm going to try really hard to post again this week.  Thanks for sticking with me while I figure out how to do this Work/Thirty-One Director/Mom/Wife/Blogger role!  Speaking of Thirty-One, we are having an outlet sale this week, where things will be selling up to 70% off.  Join my Facebook group HERE for more details on how to shop!
