Every year since I was born ( i think) my family has spent the 4th of July at the beach. We've gone to the same beach with the same friends forwever. When Frank and I started dating I introduced him to the beach 4th of July, and he's hooked! So now it's become one of our family traditions to spend the entire day and night at the beach for the 4th of July. We usually get there around 10 am and stay until the firework show at 9:00 pm. This year was the first year we didn't bbq there. We invited some good friends to spend the day with us, and they obliged and we spent the day at the beach, left for a little while to get some food( but mostly so the kiddos could nap in the car) and then came back for the show. It was a really nice day... I learned that swimming in the Ocean at 8 1/2 months prego causes extreme water buoyancy! I was making fun of myslef because i cuold lay in the water on my tummy and totally float! It was awesome, who needs a raft when you have a gut to make you float! :) Here are just a couple pics from the day. :)
PS- have i mentioned how much Lilley loves the water? pool, ocean, blow up pool at the ocean... doesn't really matter, the kid loves water! She was so good at occupying herself in her splash pool we brought her, and then taking a few trips in to the ocean with mommy and daddy. too much fun!
