Independence Day

Our move back to Canon City is getting closer and closer. My struggle has been figuring out what I need to do to prep for our move while still providing the girls a fun summer. My organizational, A-type self is really having to focus in on what needs to happen and when. "One day at a time," has become my mantra. It seems like the fun summer activities have been easier to accomplish than getting motivated to do anything around the house. I hope this doesn't bite me in the bottom...

In keeping with fun summer activities I knew we had to take advantage of my favorite holiday, the Fourth of July! I'm a summer girl. Any holiday that encompasses all that is summer is a pretty awesome in my book.

This is the first year in a while that we have gotten to celebrate as a family. To add to that we even had some sweet friends join us! A BBQ, pool time and fire works made for a great night. 

Finding family friends who mirror us in so many ways has been a tremendous blessing. Knowing that our Denver trips will include time with them makes me look forward to our future getaway weekends.

Letting the girls stay up to see fire works was on my summer bucket list! I almost backed out for fear of the girls' behavior the following day. Thankful our friends were all for it and that we were able to tag along!
