It was a beautiful day today - just perfect for a BBQ and some Independence Day fireworks. After having a lazy morning, we dressed up Larkin in a festive red, white and blue dress and went over to our friends Matt and Robin's house for their annual 4th of July bash. We all had a great time... while there were no wee little babies there last year, this year there were 5 babies all under 1 year of age! Later that evening, we took a long walk around our neighborhood and were able to see several different firework shows off in the distance. Next year we'll have to plan on taking Larkin to a 4th of July parade - I used to love those as a kid!
