Today I was looking through all of my past 4th July pictures from when the kids were babies until this year. It brought tears to my eyes to see how much they have grown. I cry as I write, "where have my babies gone"? The kids are all old enough that there will be no new discoveries of fireworks, parades, and such this year. But, I am however, enjoying the fact that they can anticipate and be excited for it all. I love that they are old enough to understand the meaning behind our celebrating and can appreciate our freedom. Oh, how thankful I am to be able to reminisce on the past and have such lovely and heartfelt memories of my little family. I have been so blessed.
These pictures were taken last Fourth July when we spent it in Bear Lake. "Baby" is just discovering chickens.
All dressed up in the coop.
Happy Independence Day. May it be filled with family and memories.
I am going to now go give all my babies a big hug.
Thanks for letting me share.
