4th of july

I’m don’t know if I’m sad that I only took 5 photos or happy because we were obviously having too much fun to even notice.

The 4th is the best! It’s probably my second favorite holiday next to Christmas. I feel so grateful for our freedoms and for those who have sacrificed and continue to do so.
“Land of the free because of the brave.” I stumbled across that saying a few times this 4th and I love it.

Our little 4th of July tradition has been the hot air balloons. It’s always an exhaustingly good time.. starting our day off at 5:30am! We come home to nap and then go to my extended family party which was fun and hot – still regretting not getting any photos of the first half of our day (wah) next year, next year. Afterwards we drove to my parents and I spotted this cute red, white and blue wall so we pulled over. And while Wells was snoozing in the back, Ryan snapped a few photos out the car window. hahah We ended the evening up at Ryan’s parents which was the perfect ending to a great 4th.
