Fourth of July

I hope you all had a great holiday. It was extremely hot here and we had a relaxing morning.
Laura, Aaron and Alaina came over and had supper with us.
As usual, Alaina got lots of attention.


I was trying to get a picture of her in her red, white and blue outfit, but as I've said before, she doesn't stand still! She's also teething and her hand was always in her mouth. :)



After supper we decided to do an impromptu photo shoot to get a new family photo of them. We got some good pictures. Aren't they a cute family?



Then back into the house to cool off and have a little play time.




Laura had offered to bring dessert - check out the cake she made!



When she cut it, we found a flag inside. It tasted good too!

Love the family photo! And the one of Alaina right after. She is so stinkin' cute, and looking very spiffy in her patriotic dress. I'll have to visit her some time soon.

They really are a cute family! Alaina is getting to be a big girl. So is Daven. Too bad we don't live close enough to get them together.

Glad your 4th was good.

Hugs,
Kat

The cake looks amazing!

Alaina is just adorable! I imagine everyone wants to pinch those cute chubby cheeks :) That's a nice family shot, too.

Hope y'all have cooled off by now!

That cake is nothing short of amazing, inside and out! I am impressed! And "cute family" doesn't even begin to describe their adorableness! Heather's looking very cute too! Alaina is a chunk of baby sugar.
