4th of July at the beach


We had no big plans for 4th of July this year, which is strange because it's always been such a big holiday for my family. At the last minute, we decided to join my brother's family...as well as some family friends, some of which I haven't seen in years...at Dillon Beach for 4th of July. I'm not going to write much, just post some photo highlights from the 24 hours or so we were there.

Tucker and Ila, our friend Alison's little girl. Aren't they the cutest?!


She's gonna be a great wife someday! LOL


Funny lil face!

I love his little hood.

It was such a beautiful day at the beach. Most of the summer it's foggy and cold down there. My family used to spend every weekend, every summer down there in a 5th wheel trailer in horseshoe formation with Alison's family and the families of a few other friends. I hadn't been there since before I graduated college, and it was nice to be back, to see everyone again (We've seen each other more recently than I've been to the beach, though!).

I spent the day with Michaela and Tucker and "the girls" while Jim went fishing with my brother. Jim had to work today, so we headed home when they got back. It was a nice, relaxing day, and a nice quiet evening. We stood in our parking lot and watched the various fireworks shows in the area. It was kind of neat to be able to see so any of them, even though they were smaller for us than if we'd been close by. But we were feeling low key, so it was perfect.

How was your 4th?
