Happy 4th of July!!!

I really love the 4th of July. It's just true Americana and it makes me happy. We saw fireworks on Tuesday. It was so much fun picking a spot for our blanket, buying cotton candy and ice cream, and people watching. The grand finale did get ruined by a monsoon thunderstorm that had us all running to our cars, but it was still fun.

Tomorrow is my 4 year wedding anniversary. It's been a fast four years, but I'm not particularly excited about this one. I guess it's because we have been strapped for cash so we don't really do much to celebrate and my husband is not romantic at all- so I don't know, it's just another day I guess. I feel guilty saying that, and I would love to get spoiled, but it's not going to happen. Plus...the romance has sort of died off since the baby came around.

We just came from a family picnic today- its nice having a holiday in the middle of the week to break things up.

Here are some pictures of my picnic-pinterest contribution and our firework night.
