4th of July

Our 4th of July started early at the Freedom Festival Balloon Fest. This has been a tradition in my family since I was little and someday daddy will join us in this great tradition of getting up at 5:00am and watching the balloons launch. Doesn't Elise look excited to be there?
Jim's Grandma also shares her birthday with our country so we spent the afternoon with her and Jim's family at their campground in beautiful American Fork Canyon.

Cute pictures! And her little red polka dot swimsuit is so great. She's getting so big!

Yvonne, I am not so sure about traditions that involve 5:00 am... it looks almost fun enough to be worth it :) Elise is a little lady now, I think last time I saw her she was hanging out in the car seat!

So fun!!! This little girl is so loved and so full of 'it'- she seems like such a sweet, sassy lil thing!
