Happy 4th of July

We started out the day with a bang...I don't usually look forward to early mornings but today I had a plan. You see our local 4th of July celebration on the bayou doesn't take place anymore...BUMMER! It was always such a great tradition to go each year and hear the symphony on the bayou and watch the boat parade and beautiful firework display. Well, now that it's gone we had to come up with a new tradition. Ta...Da...from now on every year we are going to go first thing in the morning and pick blueberries so we can come home and make scrumptious deserts to go along with our meals. The second thing we did today is that we went to the Visitor's Center (where I use to work) and fed the ducks, fish and turtles. The boys enjoyed seeing the different species of fish and turtles. Once we got home Drew and I baked some delicious blueberry muffins and cherry pie. What are some of your favorite 4th of July traditions? Hope to hear from some of you out there.

What a great tradition you have started! First of all...where do you find the must be from playing tennis...LOL!

I can't believe how big Drew is getting...I showed a pic of Drew to Jacob...and he smiled.

Dax is so adorable...the last time I saw him he was still in an infant carrier. I feel like I have been gone from BB FOREVER!

I also loved your pics from the Beach! Your family is BEAUTIFUL!
