Independence Day!

What a whirlwind this July has been. I can’t believe it’s already half over. Each day keeps going so fast, I sit in bed at the end of the night and start getting sad how July will be over before we know it, which means summer is coming to an end and we’ll have snow right around the corner. I told that all to T.J. and he laughed at me, then reminded me to just enjoy the now. I know, I know. But this summer is going VERY fast. In fact, this year, it’s going lightning speed!

That being said, let me tell you about our 4th of July! We went down to DC Thursday night after T.J. got off of work so we can spend the weekend with my family. My parents came to DC too since my newest nephew was being blessed the following Sunday.

We saw a parade in Fairfax which was pretty impressive for a local parade, then we went back to my sister’s house and played with the kids. Pool, fireworks, bike riding… it was a great day! We didn’t go downtown since most of us had done that in the past and it’s too hard to do it with kids. Plus, my poor sister broke her big toe the day before we came and we wanted to stay close to her! But it was perfect… the cousins loved playing together and it was fun catching up together!

Thanks to my brother-in-law for taking so many photos! I mostly took video throughout the weekend on my iPhone, so I didn’t capture too many shots!
