Happy Fourth of July Weekend!

This post was supposed to go up way earlier, but better late than never, right?!  I couldn’t let the holiday weekend begin without a little red, white & blue from my girls.  This holiday has always been one of my absolute favorites, and having two sweet sisters to celebrate with makes it that much better.  Crazier, more chaotic, and better. 🙂

  Waverly was so excited to get all festive for these photos, she kept saying, “oh Avalon, only big girls can wave flags, not babies”.

And Avalon just desperately wanted a balloon of her own.

It’s supposed to rain here pretty much all weekend, but we have high hopes that the weatherman got it all wrong and we will be beaching it for days.  Regardless, even if it does rain, we will call the holiday an overall WIN if we can make it through the fireworks show.  Waverly has a major fear of them and for the past two consecutive years, we have ended up driving home within minutes of the show starting.  Two years ago with one crying baby, last year with two. 😉  We’ve hardly mentioned them this time around and are hoping that she will surprise us all when they start and she doesn’t meltdown.  I’ll be back here with a report on that next week.

And lastly, a little throwback from last year, oh how these girls have grown!  We couldn’t love them more.

Wishing you the BEST holiday weekend!

    Wishing you guys the happiest most fun filled fourth weekend!!! I couldn't believe it but Charli LOVED the fireworks at the beach this past week. I actually had to sit back and think, and it was in fact her very first "professional" firework show and she did not want it to end! Crew even loved it! Fingers crossed it wasn't a fluke! Haha! Xoxo

    Waverly Maye's comments to her little sister reminds me of the Big Girl Panties book. Is that one that y'all have read?

    "You can't wear panties. Only Big Girls wear panties."

    Anywho, they're Darling! Hope you're enjoying your weekend! =)

    Try noise cancelling headphones for Waverly. Might help her to be less scared because the sound will be muffled.

    Oh Waverly! Love the things that she says. They are both so adorable in their red, white and blue. And the accessories are just perfect. Hope the firewords went better this year!

    Why do they grow so fast?? I love those swimsuits! I totally just need to keep a bag of balloons around to occupy Jude to take photos!
