A few more pictures from our Independence Day celebration. We started out in the kitchen that day attempting to turn Whatever's rainbow cake into a patriotic one.
However, I forgot one important step. Leveling each layer.
Lesson learned. Isn't it hideous? OK, so a piece was cut out at this point, but just prior to slicing, it was basically separating on its own.
Individually, it was lovely. Maybe I should have just posted this picture? Nah.....I am so far from a good cook.....let's be honest!
We next attempted to food color rice crispie treats and then cut them into shapes.
The kids enjoyed getting involved.
But, the end product was not so pretty.
Off to the fireworks....
Football for everyone!
Lainey, included, although she's not so good at sharing.
The set up. Beautiful venue.....good music.....summertime fun. By the time we left, I wanted a sweater. Lovely.
Then, Caroline broke out the big guns. Fun Dip. Guess who is most popular now?
She even got a few kisses.
The night ended with some parking lot dancin'. Those are some serious moves.
So, the 4th is over and we're busy with the vacation itinerary. Finally found a photographer for pictures on the beach.....our second professional photo shoot in 9+ years of marriage. I don't care for staged pictures most of the time.....we never look like ourselves and so I've always been happy with our candid ones. But, it's time....and the destination is gorgeous......happy to do it! Booking our cabin in the Grand Canyon this evening. Buying Disney tickets soon, too. Planning lots of day trips to check out California's natural beauty. It's on, baby! I can't wait!
