True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

July 4th

ISO 100,  f2.8,  SS 1/200
Edited with Florabella "Clean Color" (55%) & "Smitten" (63%) 
This is the above picture before I did any editing -
straight out of the camera (SOOC)
I had to include it because Xandra's eyes just blew me away.
We went to our town's 4th of July parade.
Yep, we braved the insane heat to sit on a curb & watch a parade.
Daddy walked in it, since he's a council member. 
But mostly, the kids were just thrilled to grab all the candy that was thrown out!

Can't you see the enthusiasm on their faces?!!
They were thrilled, I tell ya!!

Ok. Maybe "thrilled" is too strong a word.
We were so HOT!!
And to top it off, we totally missed seeing Matt!

In the evening we went to Papa's house for a cookout.
We celebrated with bubbles this year.
Though it didn't last too long.
It was just too hot! 

All told, it was a good holiday, even without the fireworks.
I hope we get to see them next year. 

We haven't been up to much around here lately. 
Again - the weather.
It's really hindered our activities.

The kiddos officially started swim lessons yesterday.
They did better than I thought they would, but they each need to learn to trust their instructor a bit more. 
Hopefully, it will be even better next week.
I'm going to try to get some pictures of them in the next couple weeks.

I had to include this last picture, even though it has nothing to do with the 4th.
I took it this morning while the kids were wrestling with daddy, after church.
I love the joy!

Hope everyone has a great week!!
