The 4th!

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons! For one it marks the anniversary of Todd and I's first date (that's a funny story for some time), but it also just feels like such a relaxed family holiday. You don't have the pressure of a schedule, dressing up, making the perfect meal, etc.. You just hang out, enjoy the sun, light stuff on fire, and hang out with family and friends.  This fourth of July was just that for us. We spent the weekend doing fun things like going to World's of Fun, a Water Park, Shopping, Grilling, Swimming, Cooking, and Enjoying time with family! Eliana did some "sprinklers" (a.k.a sparklers) and Owen chased his beloved Ball all over the yard! It was a great holiday and another reason I LOVE SUMMER!

Here area few little treats I made for the holiday:

Firecracker Cake Balls

Red White and Blue Strawberries

Hope you all had a great 4th too!!

Blessings and Prayers - Dawn
