I've always been someone who likes to celebrate holidays. I like traditions. And 4th of July has always been one of my favorites. It's harder in a foreign country, where the outside isn't all decorated and everyone celebrating too. But, we've made it work. Though, I admit, with this being the 3rd one, I was almost not going to try very hard... So I am thankful we had guests who brought fun festive things and helped give motivation to make it a celebration!
But these girls are pretty cute and any excuse to wear red, white and blue is one I'll take! Ellie started the day in this outfit, but I soon realized, though it's size 12 month, she's too long for it already!
This watermelon lemonade was a delicious treat! Definitely something I would never have had time to make, so I'm thankful to Danielle for squeezing all four lemons to make it! We all agreed it was better chilled and with peaches and more watermelon blended in after supper, but it was good for lunch too!
So, all-in-all, a wonderful 4th of July. I think our best celebration here yet! I'm still learning what I should and shouldn't plan with kids, but Ryan reminded me that I'm building traditions that will bless them in the future. I am thankful for a man that helps me not just thing in the moment but look down the road a bit...
Thank You, God, for America.
