The 4th of July happens to be my all time favorite holiday. I love the colors,the celebration, and everything the holiday stands for. I always get so excited when you start seeing stars and stripes when you go into the stores. My parents always have a big party for the 4th, and it is always a lot of fun. We went over there on Sunday, and Monday went to another cookout at a friends house, so I am beat today. I was hoping after the three day weekend I would be able to say my house was organized and I felt a little more like my life is in order, but unfortunately I'm still just as overwhelmed. Here are a few pictures of my niece Macy Kate from the weekend. She is such a doll, and its amazing how she has no fear of water, just loves to jump right in, and to go underwater...did I mention she was 18 months old??
