happy fourth!

this year was our fourth year celebrating the 4th of july. it was our very first holiday that we celebrated back when we were only dating a week or two. awww.
just another reason why july 4th is one of my most favorite days of the year!

we started the tradition of a family picture together [even though the first pic we weren't "family" yet.. :)]

first year: dating.

second year: married.

third year: new puppy.

fourth year: baby girl.

this year, charlie had to work the night of july 4th [which meant no fireworks for us. but that's probably better considering london might have gotten scared from the loud booms.] so, we celebrated during the day at bethany's house with a bbq then went to the park to snap some pictures of the cutest little american there is!

[this serious look of hers comes from me. i never realized how much i do this face until after i had her haha she only does it when she's studying something new. taking in the world. :)]

 ^her little bean shaped birth mark. :)

cousin loooove! melt my heart. madelyn just loves london.
i hope these two girls will be great friends growing up! they're only a little less than a year and a half apart and will only be one grade difference in school.

happy birthday, america!
we are so thankful and proud to be americans.
