    What a great 4th of July! Our young heavy hauler is on his way down to a new route now 🙂 Oh Ellie, Ellie, Ellie, sounds like you are becoming a independent little girl! I guess you are both showing your independence on the right day.

    Sounds like a great weekend!!! Love the muscle shirt 🙂

    I love that you made a whole weekend out of it, doing something everyday as a family. It really sounds like such a classic 4th weekend, I’m starting to forget how it is supposed to go. Love Ellie’s dress 😉 and the shirt is really classic too. By the way, what’s a PBR?

    Don’t worry, my 11 year old pitched a fit over balloons this weekend too. They must be REALLY important in a kids life. . .

    Leslie a PBR is a cheap beer Pabst Blue Ribbon. What is it with Balloons? And “bounce houses” have become our nemesis every event we go to there they are and Ellie has to jump.
