the 4th.

the 4th of july always brings back so much nostalgia for me from when i was a kid....barbecuing with my family, my mom's homemade apple pie, corn on the cob, sparklers......i really love this holiday and really am so proud to be an american! :)

yesterday morning we went on a pretty long hike, and by the time we got back the pool had never looked so delicious. so swimming we went, followed by a bbq with some friends with some homemade berry ice cream, a walk to our community's july 4th celebration, and then watching the fireworks from our backyard. such a fun, relaxing day [except for the hike...that was actually pretty hard] and the perfect excuse to wear my red pants. :) happy 4th!
