Fourth of July

Emily's first Fourth of July was a fabulous day!  Daddy had the day off, of course, so we got to spend the morning all playing together.  For lunch, we went to On the Border, which makes perfect sense for celebrating America's Independence Day.  I mean, if it wasn't for our independence from England, Texas might not have ever come about and without Texas, there would be no Tex-Mex.  I can rationalize anything.

After lunch, Emmy and I had swimming lessons, so we dropped Daddy off at Mimi and Papa's, who just happen to live next door to our swim teachers.  After swim, we headed home for the afternoon where Emily took a wonderful nap while I cooked and got ready for our July 4th/Walker family birthday party.  After the princess woke up, we loaded up the car to head out for the party and it wouldn't start.  (Fortunately, we found out later, it was just the battery.)  Quick change of cars and we were on our way.

We had a great time with the family, celebrating the Fourth as well as a few important birthdays.  Emily had great fun playing with her cousin Grayer and swinging outside.  Before we went home, we stopped for a quick photo op with our little firecracker. 

Happy Birthday, America!

Such a happy girl

I think these two girls kind of like each other.
