On July 9, Paul and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. We did so by taking a trip to San Antonio, and this trip couldn't have come at a better time. Last year, our anniversary was a little overlooked due to all the company coming in and out of our house NOT to see us but to meet our little mister. So, we decided it was good for us to spend the money, send the little mister to grandma and grandpa's, and spend three days just being us. It was fabulous!

on Independence Day

Lubbock has a really fun Fourth celebration. We started out at the parade in the morning and then got to see some of our friends that are in a band perform at the street festival. We had a cookout with friends and ended the day with fireworks. I didn't once bring out the camera for the cookout or fireworks, but Jonas enjoyed the slip-n-slide at the cookout and slept through the fireworks...hallelujah! We actually just watched from our car this year because we were both so exhausted from chasing him around all day long.

the best seat in the house!
