A Happy 4th~ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

The Fourth of July has always been our favorite summer holiday because Savannah was born on this day 27 years ago~ 
She is one of the sweetest gifts we've ever been given and look at those smiles! 
We couldn't love these two more and wished her a happy birthday while she partied at the beach!!!

Meanwhile back at camp Ankerich, we spent a lot of our holiday weekend in the pool because of the high temps. 
Calla is beginning to get the hang of the puddle jumper and one of her new words is Pool!~

Calla feels most secure in our arms especially in the mornings so SJ takes over with egg cooking for me. 
Calla watches everything we do and takes it all in. 
She loves to eat and says eggs and water ~
In the photo above see the bitty shenanigans. 
Evie scaling walls and pulling Calla around on her new trike with a jump rope. 
Never a dull moment around here!

July 4th morning we took our celebration photo, tools naps in the afternoon, more photos for school blog~
More swimming and grilling in the afternoon~

 We ate a picnic dinner at the big table~
And looked over to see Wp and SJ helping Calla. 
I'm telling you~ watching the sibling bond bloom is a beautiful blessing. 
Calla has brought out the best in her brothers and sisters since she's been home!

You would have thought Santa was coming when we told the kids we were going to watch fireworks and they would miss their bedtime. 
We loaded down the golfcart (think we need a three seated!) and rode down the path to our boat~
we waited a little while for the first boom and watching our kids faces when the sky lit up was priceless. 
Calla nestled into me under a towel and enjoyed the show there. 
It was the best ending to a wonderful weekend!
Payne summed it up perfectly, "I will never forget this night!"
Happy 4th๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Everyone!!!
