We started our 4th of July with a trip to Kaneohe Bay for some swimming and snorkeling.
It was a beautiful beach day.
Sarah loved it. She spent an hour lounging in her floaty.
We had some friends over for a bbq that afternoon. We had lots of yummy food, including our first watermelon of the summer. Delicious!
Sarah was pretty excited about the melon too.
Hand-cranked ice cream is a 4th of July tradition. This year we made peach.
It was a big hit.
Our cute red, white, and blue family. I had fun making Sarah's outfit.
That evening, we walked outside on to the street and watched the fireworks they were launching from the base. It was a great holiday.
The next morning, Sarah woke up at 5:00, so we went to the beach early. Sarah played in her jammies for a while and then went back to sleep. We all got a nice early start on our Saturday.
Someone gave Sarah this lovely Christmas dress which she is just growing in to, so we figured it made a good 4th of July Sunday dress.
Of course, to be really patriotic she wore her Padres shoes with it.
We had a wonderful holiday weekend. It was a great chance to spend time as a family before Kelson left for sea and I left for Oregon for a month.
