4th of July

Yes, it’s September. But give me a break — we’ve been busy. This year, the 4th of July was a week long event. We spent the final weekend of June in Greenwood for their Freedom Festival and then made our way to Evansville for the actual 4th. Charlotte had a blast playing with family and distinguished herself once more as a great car traveler (thank you for being so great at this, baby girl!).
