The fourth of july is one of my most favorite holidays. but there year i was kind of dreading it because georgia is seriously so hot. so so hot. we took the boys swimming at the ymca in south carolina and they loved the lazy river and the new slides. the boys insisted on wearing the only american swim suits we have and i found old pictures from as far back as six years ago. they were seriously so tight on them. it was hilarious. we had a fun night lighting our own fireworks off on our quiet street. we are grateful for all the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. it was fun teaching the kids about their sacrifice. the boys kept singing the star spangled banner and benson kept shouting its my americas birthday... my country.
