Dear Blog,
I've missed you so! I've finally finished my huge editing project and realized I hadn't posted since the 1st. So, that's not really that long, but it felt like forever. Anyhow, it's good to be back.

We had an awesome Fourth of July party once again this year. I love that it's becoming an annual tradition for us. Kevin's mom has kind of let us take it over the past couple of years and it's so great to actually have everyone to OUR house for a change. We finally have something that no one else in the city can top--legal fireworks! It is like a war zone here on Independence Day. I don't even know how to explain the volume of explosives that go off around us. Not to mention the small arsenal that the men ignite in our own backyard. It's awesome and horrifying in the same breath.

Riley usually goes to bed right at 8 o'clock every night, but not on the loudest of holidays! We gave him his bedtime bottle and he fell asleep quickly--and for about 15 minutes. Then, he let his know that sleeping wasn't an option by screaming into his monitor. I went to get him and he promptly rejoined the party! He sat in my lap until around 10:15 when he finally passed out. So adorable in his PJs just watching the loud fireworks like a champ. I couldn't believe he wasn't freaked out by the noise. We were joking that he was thinking 'so this is what happens when I go to bed every night...'

It was a wonderful day/night surrounded by our family. What more can you ask for?
