4th of July









Fourth of July is also special to Eric and I for another reason.
It was 9 years ago today that those two pink lines appeared right
before our very eyes.  Well actually, right before Eric's eyes.  I hadn't waited long enough after taking the test before I threw
it in the garbage.   Eric came along and saw it in the garbage.  He called me into the bathroom and there we sat together on the tub staring at the stick.  Not exactly how I thought it would go...I always imagined that I would be the one to suprise him
And now, that day seems like a lifetime ago.  I can hardly remember our life before our sweet, stubborn, funny and loving boy came into it.  We will always have two reasons to celebrate on the 4th of July.



















Brady loves fireworks...we always buy a few every year to set off in our driveway.  Thought I would share this quick video of Brady watching one of the fireworks in action!  His excitement is priceless!
 





Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July celebration!

Happy 4th my friend. You're right, his reaction is awesome. I love that kids still get a kick out of fireworks. It seems like everything is "boring" to kids now days.
I was so wishing we had some great neighbors to celebrate the 4th with, but it was just us.
I'm tellin ya...you either need to move near us, or us near you.

How fun to have that special celebration on the 4th. I do think it is one of my kids favorite holidays too. Especially the boys. . .boys and fire/fireworks!

That is such a neat memory for the 4th of July - and to think you threw it in the garbage - great story.

Brady is such a cutie patootie and I love the pictures of your family.

Glad you had a great 4th!

That first picture of Brady is adorable!!!! LOVE it!

Great shots of you and Brady, and you and Eric. That video is cute too. Your story is really sweet about finding out you were pregnant, on the 4th of July. That does make the holiday extra special! Kevin and I had our first date on the 3rd of July, 12 years ago. Our second date on the 4th. I was so excited that he asked me out 2 nights in a row. He didn't hold my hand though, and I always get on him for that! haha. :))
