Happy 4th on the 6th!

I do realize I'm a little late with the 4th of July well-wishes, but that's just the way things go with 2 kids around! We had a lovely weekend spending time with friends and family.

Here's Maren and Truett all ready to head out to the parade. Maren was beside herself with anticipation. She got to bring her tricycle to ride in the kid's parade and you'd have thought someone was sending her to the moon. I really do love being a mom, and these are the times that make it so very special. Experiencing life through the perspective of an almost-3-year-old is so refreshing!

Maren and her friend, Abby, ready to ride in the parade.

Is there anything better than a snow cone on a hot summer day?

Brett, Truett and me...there was no pulling Maren away from the parade at this point for a picture. Ha!

Maren loved waving to the people in the parade. It probably helped that they were throwing candy her way!
I hope you all were able to enjoy your own celebration in some special way! Happy 4th of July!
