Zaden and I wore these red, white, and blue outfits to church this last Sunday, today we will be dressing a little more casual. I really wanted to get some mama and baby photos but Zaden was not having it and insisted on running around. He decided to pop in for the two photos above, I love his little poses (;

For those of you in the US, Happy 4th of July! 

We might attempt to go to the parade since it's less than a 10 minute walk from our place. However, I doubt there will be any place to sit on the sidewalk.. people have been setting up and reserving spots since yesterday morning. Crazy right?

If the parade idea fails we will definitely hit up the Freedom Day Festival and maybe even go swimming while Daryl is at work.

What are your plans for the 4th?
Do you have any family traditions?


  1. OMG how cute is Zaden? Adorable! And I love the slip peeking out of your dress too!

  2. Oh I love this!! And your little boy is so cute matching his Mama!!
