Happy 4th of July!

I love the 4th of July! It's always been my favorite of all the holidays! How can it not be a favorite?

 It's the one holiday that...

We remember our childhood 4th of July times with Dad by setting off a tribute Saturn Missile.
(The bigger the better!)

Photo bombs include "snaps".

We have a great opportunity to dance around a flaming fountain like Tom Hanks danced around his fire in Castaway yelling, "Look at what I have CREATED!"

We carry out our traditional parachute run that ends up with someone always getting trampled over.
 (It's bound to happen when everyone is running and looking up at the same time. Poor Drew was the unfortunate one this year! He was alright though!)

We take a thousand and one pictures of kids waving flags.

We let our kids run around with flaming sticks of fire. 

We get to see that real men wave sparklers. 

I hope you have a wonderful (and safe) 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July Allison. Good to have a day where every body gets to play with fire.

Happy 4th, Allison! I hadn't seen pics of your kids in ages! They are getting soooo big! I love what you did with that first pic as well! Did you use an app? :)

Thank you Lynette! :)

Holly, I just played around in Photoshop to make it. I'm so not great with Photoshop so it's was a "lets see what this button does" kind of thing! :)

As always, I love seeing your fun family photos & fun layouts....great inspiration to get mine scrapped. I hope you have the time to check out my newest layout using your free May Sketch download, love how it turned out. The photos are of my darling granddaughter when she was 18 months old, she is now 3 1/2...time goes too fast. Thanks
