Our July 4th

| Leave a comment

I have always enjoyed the 4th of July – sunshine, parades, cookouts, fireworks, and all red, white and blue! And I was even more excited to share this holiday with my daughter! We had a low key weekend at home, mostly because I am pretty sure fireworks and parades would absolutely terrify Ada right now! But next year, I am sure that we will watch fireworks. I can’t wait to see her first reaction to them! Although, I am sure she will be terrified of fireworks then, too! 😉

I am glad that we were able to get a July 4th family photo – thanks to a newly required selfie stick. I think they are terribly hilarious, but they sure do make family photos a lot easier!

We even sported our red, white, and blue for church. I love her little pointed toes in this photo.

For the 4th, we had our friends over for a cookout, complete with red, white, and blue sangria! It was the first time I have ever made sangria and it was pretty darn delicious! You can find the recipe I used here. We had a great time, drinking sangria and watching our little babies play together.

Ada’s first July 4th outfit was so cute! When I saw this onesie, I couldn’t resist. I knew it would make the perfect first July 4th outfit for Ada!

She is definitely our little firecracker!

It is getting a little bit harder to take good picture of her any more, she is such a little wiggle worm!

I hope you had a wonderful 4th filled with fun, friends, and family! Now that July 4th is over, it is officially fall in my mind. Bring on the cooler weather and everything pumpkin!
