Our 4th of July was spent was spent together as we usually do. It doesn’t take much to organize a family gathering and a big holiday like the 4th was an assumption. Since both sides of our families live in town, we like to get together as one big family for holidays! My parents & siblings were invited over to Bruce’s parents house with his siblings and we also invited quite a few of our friends. I love how much our parents get along & desire to be involved in each others lives. Also just how darn welcoming they are to friends – everyone is part of the family! It is a joy to be able to celebrate and spend time together.
I also loved having a reason to wear my new Stitch Fix maxi dress. While maxi dresses are always SO long on me, this one just barely touches the floor and I count that as a win! HAHA. I also love that when looking back everyone is wearing red, white, and blue. What a festive bunch of people we are. After a long afternoon eating & playing in the sun, we set out to hike up the trail to the overlook to watch the fireworks. More memories for the memory bank. More photos for the books.
