Independence Day 2014

Yay for my favorite Holiday!!!!

Our plans changed several times leading up to, but the day found us with the same friends we celebrated with last year.
I was really looking forward to it since it was a on Friday and Josh wouldn't have to work the next day. (Although they still tried to get him to come in.)

When Turtle was a baby I started the tradition of a patriotic photo shoot just in time for the 4th.
But then, when we had Monkey a few days before the holiday, it was just too much to get the kids to do a patriotic shoot and Monkey's bday photos so close.
So this year, Mommy settled for a quick, back/front yard, bad lighting, just hurry up and smile/cooperate photo shoot, on the day of.

Every year there are tons of these lanterns let off and our kids always call them "Tangled" lanterns and get super excited! ;)

I hope everyone had an amazing Independence Day!!!
