We Love America!

Really though, second runner up on favorite holiday! Who doesn't love BBQing, family and fireworks? It tough moving every few years as we always lose our close group of friends, but we always end up having a great time as a family. This year I think we found the best possible way to celebrate as a family (+pups!)

picture overload!

Handsome just finished building a trailer to tow behind the jeep so it was the perfect time to pack everything (because with two kids you need all the things) and the pups and we headed out to Gearhart Beach! The beach basically completes me and nothing truly compares to the white sandy beaches of back home, BUT this beach you can bring dogs and drive your vehicles onto the beach.. way cool and WAY easier when you have two babes plus a ton of crap.

We left just in time before things got real crazy on the coast. Instead of fighting traffic, people and not getting home until midnight we opted for just a few fireworks at home and watched all the ones we could see in the sky. Rae LOVED the fireworks, she smiled and giggled each time she saw them! 

We really had the best day, definitely one for the books. So happy to live in America and have the freedoms we do have each day! 

and to rewind a bit... Friday we prepped food (and pie!) for the Fourth, had tickle fights and gave it our best attempt at a picture with both babes ;)


  1. Beautiful pie!! Looks like such a fun weekend.

  2. It looks like you had the beach to yourself! So glad you had a fun holiday!
