Our 4th of July included watermelon, wiffle ball, peach cobbler, and fireworks, amonst other things....OH and some water play for Lovebug. The metal tub bought the day before at a local feed store was quite a good purchase and she had a blast playing and cooling off in the water.

It was a great day spent with family, although it did seem really long and we were all pretty tuckered out come late afternoon. Somehow we mustered up the energy to go watch our city's fireworks display, but Lovebug could have cared less. She was not impressed at all! So we quickly left, and without a mosquito bite thank goodness. When we came home, our neighbors did their annual little display in the street and she LOVED that. Maybe because it was so close and she could see and hear them so much better. I don't know, but she loved it and was upset when they were over!

I just feel so blessed today - to have my little family and have had such a great fun-filled holiday weekend! There were quite a few highlights but a couple stand out currently, with one of them being the pizza my Love made last night. It was hands down the best pizza I've ever had...seriously. I have begged him to please write down what he can remember of the ingredients before he forgets because it was SO incredible. I cannot wait until the leftovers tonight for dinner, followed by some leftover peach cobbler too! :) Another highlight was finding and then listening to a mixed cd :) my Love made for me about 9 years ago! We had such a good time listening to the songs he chose to put on there...such wonderful memories!

We actually got a little rain yesterday which cooled things off a bit and the morning air actually feels pretty darn nice. When we woke up it was only 82 in the house which isn't bad at all compared to what it has been lately. I know it's going to be a wonderful day! Well, I hope everyone had an incredible holiday and I wish you an even more incredible week!

I just love this post... there's nothing sweeter than a wet, happy little munchkin. I'd be honored if you'd post this on 'Friday's Nature Table' post for today.
Blessings and magic.
