Hello and goodbye

I realized I have to do a fourth of July post today because I leave for Minnesota tomorrow!

That’s right, after a year of planning, I’m heading out for Jen’s wedding tomorrow! I’m so looking forward to seeing her but am anxious about leaving Ben for 3 1/2 days, the longest I’ve ever been away from him! I have no doubt my days will be filled and it’ll go by fast.

We had a fun fourth of July this year, the best one in the last couple years. Ryan’s grandma lives out in Rancho Murieta (a small community in the middle of nowhere) and every year they do “big” fireworks, so we headed out there late afternoon.

Since the weather has been scorching lately (low 100’s) we decided to bring Ben’s pool.

He put of quite the show if you can’t tell from the photos

He loved playing in it and it helped keep everyone cool. Then we went on Ryan’s grandmas golf cart around the community.

It was all fun and games until the golf cart died! We had a sweaty walk back- not fun!

Overall we had such a blast and we so proud of Ben who was still going strong at 10:30 pm! He was on a firework high!

  1. Great pictures!! You look lovely in the pic with Ben btw!

    Hope you have a great time at Jens wedding, give her hugs from the rest of us. It's hard leaving the kids behind but Ben will be well looked after and you guys deserve a break.

    Take care and take lots of pictures.


  2. We always seem to capture some great 4th of July pics...not that the rest of the years are bad, just the 4th's always seem to be the best! Had fun with you and our little man. Great post!!


I love hearing from you, thank you!
