Happy Birthday America!

We had a wonderful Fourth of July with Josh's family. It has become a tradition to spend the evening with his extended family and then for all of us to hop on our bikes and ride up to George Bush Library for the fireworks.

Cameron was so excited about fireworks this year. I explained to him that they go in the sky, that they are loud and that they are pretty. He then added in these sounds effects, "oohh, ahh". It was way cute and gave Josh and I some laughs for the evening.

On top of our annual Fourth of July bike ride, we have started this tradition of getting out the Fourth of July hats and American Flags. We started at Cameron's first Fourth and I have gotten some great pictures every year! He really gets so excited to wave the flags. He has now started to salute each flag he sees (thanks to Mimi, my mom) and we are teaching him the Pledge of Allegiance...look for that video soon!

Anyways, we had a great Fourth and we hope all of you did too!

'And I'm proud to be an American...'

The perfect seat (this is how Cameron chose to watch the fireworks with his Daddy Mike):
