his first fourth of july

this year we celebrated the holiday by going up north a couple of hours for a family party. it was held on a farming property that rents out their land and a huge water slide for the day. darren and i came here when we first started dating for a family reunion, so it was fun to be back again! the day consisted of lots of good food, family we don't see often, going down the slide, wesley meeting all our family members (and them adoring him, obviously), wesley meeting some other baby friends, volleyball and sunshine. all our favorite things in one day! it really was a great day and even more great that wesley is here now celebrating these holidays with us. 

once we got home from the slide, we went for a nice dip in the pool. i love how wes is so calm in the pool. he is a water lover already... it was the perfect ending to a great day! we hope you all had a safe and happy 4th of july!
