Happy Fourth of July from Quincy, IL! Here is one of the pretty fireworks.
Ella and Mommy's self portrait. She was "Mommy's girl" during the evening, so I enjoyed every minute of it since Daddy is usually "it!"
The best picture we could get considering Ella doesn't like to get her picture taken right now. Lauren as you can tell doesn't mind getting attention...
Ella was cold, and so was I. Who would have imagined that you would have needed coats and blankets on the Fourth???
Ella and her Sparklers. When I was a kid the handle was like 6 inches long, and you just had enough time to write your name in the air before you got burnt by the sparkler!
