That's right, look at the little blog, she is all grown up! It was almost one year ago that I posted my very first post.
The Fourth of July, a time for fireworks, popsicles, potato salad, beautiful sunsets, and family traditions. It's always been one of the best holidays to spend at home. My parents have the perfect yard to see fireworks from 6 different locations (the best one featured in the above photo), the grandkids are growing and their excitement is catching!
( For clean photos of this little one, see the photo blog) Anna and I just ate red popsicles and were showing each other our tongues. She's learned all her features and loves to point them out and talk about them!
The evening of the fourth always starts with a beautiful orange sunset that I take in with delight each year.
It always changes from orange to gold.
And ends with gold to pink to purple. Each one is different, but each one makes me feel the same.
Riley is the Martha Stewart of the family and always has decorations to spare for each occasion.
The two cousins telling secrets and sharing giggles.
When the pack of fireworks is bigger than the children, you know it's gonna be a good time!!
Thank you to all of you who have made blogging so entertaining, thought provoking, and wonderful!! Here's to another great year!
