Fourth of July and Louisville trip

The fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. Maybe it's because my birthday is on the 6th, but I love me some fireworks and everything about the 4th, but NOW it is even more special. We brought Lola Joy into the U.S. on the 4th of July last year! So, from that 4th until the day I die, it will forever hold such a special memory for me and my family!
Happy one year in the U.S., my sweetie pie!

Here are some friends we got to spend the 4th with. We go way back!:-)
Missy and Hannah
Hunter and J.P.

We had fireworks two nights in a row!

Lola Joy LOVED them!:-)
The only thing missing from my 4th this year was The Kightlinger Family. We are usually with them, but they were on vacation. :-( Missed you Kightlinger's!!
On our screened-in porch
She is so silly!
I LOVE when toddlers squat like this!!

There's that nose scrunch I love so much!

Every year Doug has a business trip in Louisville and we have a BLAST every year!!! On Lola Joy's Gotcha day, we went to fourth street live and ate at the Hard Rock Cafe! So much fun!
The boys snapped a shot of me and my hubby. (We celebrated 13 years on June 21st while at the beach. I am so blessed to have the BEST husband and Father to my children! I love you, Babe!)

The boys LOVED where we were seated!

Blessings to you and yours!
