Fourth Fun

We just got home from our first road trip since having Sam and we are all pretty exhausted. My sister (The Writer) has the perfect party house...a huge 3 story Craftsman mansion with pink trim and enough rooms that the little girls are lost for hours! We ate, lit some fireworks, talked, cuddled the baby, and ate some more. I didn't get nearly as many photos as I would have liked. Sam (aka Mr. Grumpy Pants as J has now named him) had a fussy day Friday and wanted to be held. And since my role in my family is usually "photojournalist"...there aren't a whole lot of photos to share. But we did manage to take a few :)

Here is Sam with his "Great Gaga". She was thrilled to meet him and I just love this picture of them together!

A and J enjoying the smoke bombs

My sweet lil firecracker

The three littlest girls...they are completely inseparable!

A and J taking a break from the fireworks to pose for me!

Sam sacked out (finally!) with Daddy! I was so proud of myself that I even had a little Fourth of July outfit for him. I waited to put it on him until the festivities began...then he promptly peed all over it...I guess I'm still learning about having a little boy!

Mommy time!

I had to include this shot too...that wrinkled brow! Now I know what he will look like as an 80 year old man :)

Hope you all had a wonderful, family-filled, Fourth of July! We are all off to take a good long nap!

What a great 4th of July you had, here in the UK my oldest boy Max had a fun day at school to celebrate, they ate american food and played baseball and basketball, he really enjoyed the day. Lovely pics again....claire x
