Independence Day 2017

We went to our annual family gathering to celebrate the 4th of July. Baby Dragon enjoyed reading homemade comics with her cousins.

Handsome Husband played board games with this nieces and nephews. Sweetie borrowed Aunt Ja’s swimsuit so she could join cousins down at the river. Handsome Husband and I had decided not to bring swim gear since we had just gone to the river the day before. But that was a mistake, of course the kids wanted to go play in the water with their cousins! Luckily, Aunt Ja was willing to let Sweetie borrow hers.
