Little brothers were given a boost by big brothers..
There was time to hang out..
And hold on...
Volleyball games were played..
And races were run..
Waves were surfed with friends..
And then came the big fun :o)
And a lot of sparklin' too
It was a great day and a blessing to be with some of our favorite people celebrating the birthday of this great Land. Sam-Sam LOVED everything about his first 4th. He thought the fireworks were awesome and cheered with each boom, poop, and bang. There are so many "firsts" we missed in his life. We can't tell him about the day he took his first steps or said his first words, but there are so many fun firsts we are experiencing with him and we absolutely treasure each moment.
Happy 4th of July!!!! Happy Birthday America!! Hope you are all having a wonderful 4th of July!
"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism."
