Independence Day this year for me meant:
-hanging out with family from all over and loving every minute of it,
-watching Brooklyn and Roman hesitantly try the water slide for the first time and gaining confidence in their new skill,
-getting Famous Square Ice Cream and laughing hysterically watching Greggory lick the cone all by himself as his feet are getting soaked with icecream rain,
-and then being astonished that he can actually finish a Famous Square Ice Cream cone all by himself.
-hiking in the mountains and finding a lizard for Roman and Greggory to try and catch,
-watching my one year old pitch a baseball to my three year old and thinking, wow, he's actually pretty good,
-watching fireworks with my family and remembering that last year Roman was so scared of the fireworks and this year he can't get enough.
-and finally, realizing how independent my children are getting and thinking that is a little bit sad. In a good way.
