4th of July

Happy 4th of July! 

Oh, how I love this holiday!  As I see it, there are two fabulous things about this holiday:  1.)  it's our faithful pup Finnegan's birthday and 2.)  it's located smack dab in the middle of the summer!

Because of these two things we are so lucky to be able to wrap up lots of fun into one day for the celebration of our nation's independence!

Today we had a lazy morning together making Finnegan all kinds of goodies for breakfast for her birthday.  Afterwards Chris and the girls took her to the park for a long walk (while I pulled together the dish we are bringing to the party later tonight).  She certainly deserves it :-)  I can't imagine finding a dog that is a better fit for our family.  And the love between Finnegan and Emma!  Well, it's really something to see.  I can't imagine our life without her and am so happy we've had an amazing 9 years together and we look forward to many more!

Finnegan caught lounging on our couch - she is NOT allowed on the couch and sneaks up there sometimes in the middle of the night
Tonight we are going to celebrate with some great friends for their annual 4th of July barbeque.  There will be a water slide, a kiddie pool, children running all about, great food and drinks, the children messy from eating popsicles and watermelon, and a rest on the lawn to watch the firework display.  We have been friends since our first children were born and it's so much fun watching them grow up together!  Each year just gets better!


In other news, this weekend Emma's new jogging stroller was delivered.  We're so excited about how this stroller is already making things like walks in the park easier.  We do need a liner to help position her better but that is on back-order and we are putting it to good use while we wait for it to arrive.  Emma loves it.  Julia loves it.  Chris and I think we will get lots of use out of this stroller and are really excited to have it.
