Looks like we've begun an annual tradition of heading to my parents' house for a 4th of July get together. Last year, Ava was so tiny and wanted me to hold her the whole time. This year, she was right in the mix with the older kids. Leah just finished taking swimming lessons the day before, and it was so amazing to see her swimming independently in the water. I was so proud of her! We had a great time celebrating our nation's independence with food, fun, and great friends.
