|Aaaaaand one of my all-time favorite Ruby pictures was created last night as she posed like this during a belly shot.|
I love the warm weather, the picnics, the red, white, and blue, the fireworks, squealing and clapping along with strangers at the fireworks show, the live music, etc. all celebrating the fact that we all live in this beautiful country.
Our church actually cancelled Wednesday night's service so everyone could spend the 4th with their families so we got to see the fireworks just like my heart desired!
I showed Ruby a YouTube video of fireworks yesterday to prepare her and she was talking about them all day.
She was so, so tired since they didn't start until 10:00. She almost fell asleep during them! But I think all the squeals and clapping kept her excited enough to stay awake.
We've been really busy with friends and family lately and it was so sweet to lay on that old blanket on the grass, just the 3 of us, one in my belly, and be a family. Me and Kevin have gone to this park for years to watch the fireworks and we smiled and sighed at how different each year has been. Dating and a little nervous at that park for the 4th, newlyweds at that park for the 4th, newborn baby at that park for the 4th, chubby 1 1/2 year old at that park for the 4th, toddler and pregnant all together at that park for the 4th of July. It's just so special to me. And the fireworks just send me over the edge with excitement!
I love you, my sweet little family.
