linked 52 | red, white + blue

who doesn’t love a summer 4th of july celebration? this year it was just about the simple things.

we took the boys swimming in the pool. and we ate some traditional summer food… turkey burgers, hot dogs, my mom’s potato salad (my absolute favorite), baked beans and corn on the cob. and we watched fireworks. the boys did not like the loud noise that accompanied the beautiful colors that lit up the sky that we could see in every direction as we sat in my parent’s backyard. but i enjoyed watching them with my mom and my grandma while mark went inside with quinn and tate.

it was a day well spent…

Renee @ Photography + Doodling + Motherhood - beautiful pics!! i miss 4th of July in Florida so much!! and, I’m so glad C wasn’t the only one who didn’t like the loud noise. She freaked as soon as she heard them so we watched from inside, too! :)

Jenn - Love the chalk for red white and blue! And it sounds like you guys had a great celebration together. The pic of him jumping into the pool is perfect!

michelle - I miss the days of sidewalk chalk and oh how I wish we had a swimming pool. Love these shots. :)

rhonda - Looks like a GREAT 4th!!!! Love the first chalk picture – such a cool angle!

Jean - chalk fun! so summery! love it!

that’s one thing we didn’t do this year, watch fireworks. :/

Andrea - Sounds like a wonderful Fourth of July! The pool looks heavenly, and I don’t even swim, just to dip my toes and cool off…perfect!
