Happy Independence Day!

I hope that everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July!!

I have to admit that since we've moved to Alaska, it hasn't felt the same.

I grew up spending the day at the beach, lighting fireworks all night over the water.

It doesn't get dark enough in Alaska to enjoy fireworks. It just doesn't quite seem like the Fourth without it.

The girls marched in a parade with their Girl Scout troop.

No 4th of July parade is complete without an appearance from Santa Claus, right? Well at least not if you live in North Pole :)

Nick happily sat and collected the candy that was thrown at him. He didn't like the sounds of the fire truck sirens though.Next year, I'm hoping to spend the Fourth together as a family - watching fireworks on the backdrop of a dark sky.
