Sorry in advance for the onslaught of pictures. My kiddos just look so cute I can't help it.
The week that Keith was in Santa Barbara I decided to bag keeping up with house work and had fun making outfits for my girls. I made them these shirts to celebrate the 4th.
The 4th is actually one of my very favorite holidays. I have many fond memories of 4ths growing up. They usually consisted of always decorating our bikes; going for a bike ride as a family first thing. I loved my flag and crepe paper decorated bike! We would come home and watch Johnny Tremain (if you don't know what that is go RIGHT NOW and find out!). I love this book and the movie is good too. Then we would have a few families in the ward (almost always including the Bushman family because most kids matched up age wise with their kids) come over for a BBQ and Swim. We almost always had homemade ice cream and then would go watch fireworks (while eating fireballs). My parents have always instilled strong patriotic pride in us. I have a love and passion for my country and it's history. I am so grateful to live in this wonderful country. So many miracles in history. I am proud to be an American!!!
